Alpha centauri is a medium purple.
I'm in love with the sheen this ink gives off in ink drops, I just wished it showed up more in writing as well.
Dry time: Alpha Centauri dried completely in 30 seconds.
Water resistance: The ink had medium water resistance.
Feathering: Alpha Centauri only feathered on Baron Fig paper, but did great on the other papers.
Show through: Alpha Centauri had low to medium show through on all of the papers.
I used a broad Pilot Vanishing Point Twilight on Tomoe River paper. There is a little bit of shading, but no sheen.
Overall, this ink is pretty well behaved. I really like the color.
