A few weeks ago when I posted a blog on how I had swabbed all 60 Diamine Fountain Pen Inks, I broke them down into three color groupings: green to blue, yellow to red, and purple to brown. Of each of the three images, the greens and blues got twice as many hits as the other two and it led me to question, what shades of blue and green are people most searching for?
Are you looking for a bright shamrock green or a vivid blueberry? Or do you prefer more muted shades - like an olive green or a Prussian blue?
I've already worked through quite a number of these inks - Emerald, Umber, Kelly Green, Jade Green, Steel Blue, Aqua Blue, Royal Blue, Sapphire Blue, Prussian Blue and Majestic Blue. (Reviews are in the works) While I'm typically not a blue/green sort of ink user, I surprisingly found myself liking more of these colors than I initially thought I would.
So how about it folks? Which shades of blue and green are your favorites, or which are you still searching for?
