Ink Review #836: Colorverse Opportunity


Colorverse #69 Opportunity belongs to Colorverse Season 5 and was included in the August Ink Flight box, the box is still available-you can find it here. This ink comes in a boxed set with a 65ml bottle of Opportunity and a 15ml bottle of Spirit. Opportunity is one of those interesting magenta purples, it can look pink in certain light but I find it more of a purple.


The color:

Opportunity is a bright magenta purple with a little bit of shading.



In large swabs on Tomoe River paper the ink in looks a bit flatter than it does in writing.


Writing samples:

Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.

Dry time: 10 seconds on Rhodia, 40 seconds on TR

Water resistance: Low

Feathering: Low-there was some feathering in the flex nib on Rhodia and Leuchtturm.

Show through: Medium

Bleeding: Low-there was some bleeding in the flex nib.

Other properties: low shading, no sheen, and no shimmer.

On Staples 24 lb copy paper the ink feathered in the all nib sizes and had a lots of bleeding in the flex nib too.

Comparison Swabs:


Opportunity is similar to Sailor Ink Studio 435 and Sailor Kingdom Note Thysanostoma Thysanura. Click here to see the Colorverse inks together, and click here to see the purple inks together.

Longer Writing:


I used a Platinum 3776 Nice Lavande with a broad nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a slightly wet flow.

Overall, it’s a pretty color. There was a bit of feathering and bleeding in the flex nib, but it performed well in the other nib sizes and dried pretty quickly too. It would be a good color to use in the summer.
