Thanks for this -- I am completely lost on what blue to get! I hope someone posts De Atramentis Atlantic Blue. It is one of the inks I am eyeing, although I am so new to this I don't really know what I want yet.

Here are the blues I have currently at the homestead.  My attempt at organization was only partially successful.  Not a fan of blue-black or dark blues, so mine are mostly bright medium and cyan.

Blue Cashmere changes to more purple tones when a lot of ink is laid down such as the Q-tip swab.

Iroshizuku Tsuyu-kusa: why is it not as well known as some other Iro inks?

When I first tried Tsuyu-kusa, I thought it was too light, but it has grown on me. I think it does better in a medium or broad nib.

Hey, Tas, quick question... which company for Midnight Blue?  I'm thinking Diamine, but it could be Noodler's or even De Atramentis.

Oh no, we have the same sense of humor. I was seriously thinking about finding an image of the Swatch.

I have a silver one, too, if you ever put up a Silver Swatch thread.  :P

Cool colors loaded up in pens this month.  Mostly blue, but some greens and violets.  A variety of pens on Canson tracing paper.  The scan doesn't quite show the splendor of the shading of Yama-dori, South Seas Blue, Kon-peki, and Myrrh.  YUM!
