We are almost done with new releases week, and today's new release is Colorverse Crystal Planet, from Spaceward Season 1. This ink comes in a box set of two bottles, 65ml and 15ml. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Crystal Planet is a medium blue.
In large swabs there is some purple sheen, and a little bit of shading.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 40 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was a little bit of feathering, but not bad, and just a few little spots of bleeding.
I used a broad Pelikan M805 Vibrant Blue on Franklin-Christoph Sugar Cane paper, which does have a purple tone to it. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, it's well behaved, and a nice color.
