Colorverse Multiverse Season 3 includes “sets” of inks, with one 65ml bottle of one ink and a 15ml bottle of another ink. This set includes a 65ml bottle of Schrodinger and a 15ml bottle of Cat, a glistening ink. Samples of these sets can be very hard to come by since the bottles are different sizes. I purchased my sample of Schrodinger from Vanness Pens, and my sample of Cat from Ink Journal.
Schrodinger is a medium green and Cat is a medium blue with pink sheen and silver shimmer.
Schrodinger is a tricky ink. In some light the sheen looks pink, in some it looks black, and if you lay the ink down really heavily, you get a tiny bit of electric blue sheen around the edges. Tricky tricky.
In ink drops Cat has some dark red sheen with silver shimmer.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 40/50 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was some feathering, and some bleeding in the flex nib.
Ink swabs for comparison, left to right (top to bottom for mobile RSS): Robert Oster Emerald, Colorverse 21 Schrodinger, and Colorverse 39 Supernatural. Schrodinger has a bit more yellow in it than Emerald does, but not as much as Supernatural. Click here to see the Colorverse inks together, and here to see the green inks together.
Overall, I dislike that you can’t get the colors individually. Both inks are pretty well behaved, I love that Schrodinger has interesting sheen, but I wish the different sheen colors were visible in more than just the large swabs. In writing the sheen just looks black.
