I may have already found my favorite ink from the 2023 Inkvent.
Jacaranda is a standard ink, with a very pale and almost luminous periwinkle color and some shading. In wet areas, it has some pink undertones and a darker purple halo. It might be a bit too pale for finer nibs, but the flow is excellent.
Unlike the two Sailor inks in the picture above, Jacaranda isn’t really a multi shading ink, but there’s enough color variation to give it an extra flair.
The only drawback is that Jacaranda is not a particularly Christmassy color to me. (Perhaps the jacaranda tree blooms in December, what do I know?) But it really doesn’t matter because it’s so darn pretty!
