InkShift - Kaweco Palm Green to Royal Blue
 
Just for the fun of it, I decided to do a project exploring what happens when you move progressively from one ink colour to another. For now, I'm restricting myself to inks from the same manufacturer - mainly to avoid nasty chemical surprises. My hope is that some of these "inkshifts" result in interesting colours that I can use to write/draw with. And besides... it's just fun to watch one ink colour morph into another one. 
 
Palm Green and Royal Blue are regular Kaweco inks, but not especially interesting. As far as I know, Kaweco has no teal inks in its line, so I decided to explore if a decent teal is in the mix. Green inks appear to be very dominant ones, so I explored on the blue side of the spectrum. Some interesting combinations arise, certainly more interesting than the plain ink versions I started with.

In the span between the two starting inks, some interesting colours can be found. My personal favourites are:
  • 1 part Palm Green, 7 parts Royal Blue : a Prussian Blue style colour
  • 1 part Palm Green, 4 parts Royal Blue : a blue-leaning teal

I really enjoy these ink morphing experiments, the results are often surprising and a lot more interesting than the original inks. Loads of fun!

Doing an inkshift is easy. All it takes is a couple of pipettes, some receptacles, Q-tips and a fountain pen. And a couple of hours of free quality time to run the mixing experiment. You should try it... a fun experience.

The colors aren't really doing anything for me, but I like your geometric pattern! :)  Thanks for sharing.

Nice! I'm not a big fan of teals tbh, but the Royal Blue really hits the spot :wub:

 

As always, thank you so much for your quality contribution :thumbup:
