This is more an example of the strange things my mind comes up with late at night... I don't expect the thread to live very long.


I'm pretty sure most of us are familiar with how Colorverse creates series with six boxed sets, each set having a large "snail" and a small "snail" of ink, often different colors or if the same color the smaller one may be a glitter ink.


My mind came up with a Hasbro licensed series: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic -- The Mane 6

{You can understand why I say "five years too late" as the series finale was last fall, and that was season 9, so going back 5 years would put one into season 4, middle of the run}


I see the large snail as being the primary character color (with one exception) and the small bottle being the eye color

{character | large | small -- generic colors, I'm not going to try to pick out existing inks for formal names}


  • Applejack | muted Orange | Green
  • Pinkie Pie | Pink | Cyan
  • Fluttershy | muted Yellow (avoid highlighter shade) | Cyan-Green
  • Rainbow Dash | bluish Cyan | Magenta
  • Rarity | Violet (I don't think a nano-particle titanium white pigment ink would fly, so this is the mane color) | Blue
  • Twilight Sparkle | floral Lavender | deep Lavender (maybe with glitter)


My first nightmare thoughts had been for body color / mane color -- but Applejack's straw yellow would be practically unseeable, we'd have had two shades of pink for Pinkie, along with a third pink for Fluttershy, two shades of violet for Rarity (maybe glitter for the mane highlight shade), and since we don't have inks that separate into a spectrum Rainbow Dash would likely require a pale yellow-green with a rainbow of glitter particles, Twilight would get the magenta skunk stripe.



Probably wouldn't have been a high seller -- the show's target demographic is likely still using crayons. :lol:

This is the biggest problem with your plan.  I would be required (by a brony friend) to purchase this ink for myself, but I don't like the idea of a pale purple (aka lavender) ink as the big bottle.  I want the darker purple to be the big bottle.  If the little one must have glitter, I'll tolerate it, just not the big one. :P

This thread makes me laugh; I’ve always called any ink with shimmer “My Little Pony” inks. They remind me of the writing in glitter pen-filled, kawaii-style fluffy-covered notebooks that are all over Instagram. Shimmer inks seem (to me) to be perfect for that demographic ;-)
