Hey Everyone! 

I was a little determined to come up with an ink the color of my husband's eyes a couple years ago, and I think I succeeded...he has a complex green iris with a golden brown ring around the pupil. I mixed some of the Iroshizuku together, along with water (counting drops from a syringe), and the combination of Shin-ryoku, Ina-ho, and Kiri-same seemed to do the trick! I was even able to get the bleeding edge to show gold-brown, like the ring around his pupil... the last image is a closeup of a swab of the ink on some grainy paper.


Thought you all would enjoy...

Wow!  That is fantastic!  I never thought of trying to match ink to the color of someone's eyes.

GREAT JOB and very romantic.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
