    Waterman Mysterious Blue

    This is one of the first ink I bought. I was looking for a good blue black ink, just to have something different from the usual cartdridge available Pelikan 4001 Royal Blue, Black, and Blue Black. Waterman's Mysterious Blue revealed to be something totally different in a pleasant way. Mysterious Blue is a strange ink, when wet appears to be a beautiful dark blue which turns to a lighter and with a touch of green tone after dried (difference is very consistent if you leave a considerable ammount of times) equally beautiful. The flow is consistent and behaves well on every paper ( I noticed a little feathering and bleedthrough on cheap copy paper). Shading is always noticeable on every kind of paper, and is absolutely impressive for a "supposed to be blue - black " ink. The colour is absolutely work appropriate, no one is going to look at you strangely if you use it to sign your professional papers. This is not a waterproof ink, it has some hints of water resistance, but it's really close to none. Even if this ink has a good flow, this ink has not long drying times, just 5 sec for normal copy paper and 10 sec for tracing paper, so if you're left handed and you're reading this review, yes, this can be an option for you. For those who likes sheeny ink (like me), I've noticed a relly good magenta sheen on tracing paper which I've never seen before this test. Another interesting fact about this ink is that, in my opinion, it's really close to some higher price range inks (like limited edition Mont Blanc Blue Hour / Twilight Blue) but at a third of the cost. I've got both, I love MB Blue Hour, it's one of the my favourite inks for several reasons, but as long as I have Waterman's Mysterious Blue, I don't see any reason to waste it (or to buy it if you're looking for it). In the end, is this ink worth it? Yes, this ink, at this price (I bought it for 5€ a 50 ml bottle, but I would accept to buy it for 8€-9€ as well) has a great value. Do not expect a classic Blue Black, because in my opinion this is not a Blue Black, is something between a Dark Blue and a Teal ink if I've to say, but is indeed something you're not going to find in standard Pelikan 4001 ink cartridges. It's a good ink for beginner's, for work, for drawing and for any purpose you can find. So if in doubt, buy it, it's worth a try. COPY PAPER SCHIZZA & STRAPPA PAPER TRACING PAPER CROMATOGRAPHY Please refer at the cromatography for the ammount of green in this ink, the scans really do not bring out how much the ink turns on the green side after dried.
