Such a lovely light blue! For such a pale colour, I find it is quite saturated in a wet nib and I’m able to lay down an even, contained line. I wouldn’t call it a turquoise because it only has an almost imperceptible green tone. It is similar to GvFC Gulf Blue (which is very dry in comparison), Kobe #42 Rokko Island Blue (bluer) and Kobe Wind Blue (greener). In wet nibs, I would use this for proofreading as it offers a nice contrast with black text. I wouldn’t use this for long sessions of note-taking because it is quite bright; it is by no means eye searing, but a bit too cheerful for reading pages of copious handwritten notes. I was able to see slight pink sheen on the edge of where the ink pools in heavy application. It seems to offer some shading as I write, but with my nib and paper combos, it disappears as it dries.
