I Need Some Help Finding A Color Match



Mean_Dean

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm pretty new to fountain pens and ink in general and I was hoping to find an ink that matches the color of my 2007 Mustang. The color name is listed as "Vista Blue" but every Google search I run that includes the words Vista and Fountain Pen just pulls up articles related to the Lamy Vista pen. I'd really appreciate any help finding a good color match for this. I've attached a picture of the car for reference

Now I know why I collect inks. Just imagine me being that interested in cars........................................................................

From the photo (at least on my screen) I'd say Akkerman Shocking Blue (for a dark "true" blue, with red sheen to it), or -- if there's a hint of teal in the car color -- maybe Diamine Oxford Blue.

Looking at Chrissy's comparison sheet (and I'm looking at the actual writing, not the swabs, Diamine Majestic Blue might also be a good choice).

Looks like Diamine Sargasso Sea might be a close match, although it's a temperamental ink. PR Electric DC Blue and Diamine Cornflower also are worth considering.

+1 for Sargasso Sea or Cornflower :)

Ford's Vista Blue and Deep Impact Blue are very close.

Maybe not the exact color, but if you are talking about a real American muscle car, then there can be only one American muscular blue for this one:

 

Noodler's Baystate Blue

 

:D

Yeah, but the problem with BSB is that it's not UV resistant....
