Ink Swab: Colorverse Jupiter Flyby

The second Colorverse Limited Edition Voyager I ink that I tried is the Jupiter Flyby. Pretty cool name, and I like that this color is actually quite close to the color profile of the planet Jupiter. This is a pale brown ink, it reminds me of the color of foundation or concealer. When wet, the color if the ink is very different, it’s reddish brown. Almost like the color of rust. When it dries up, it becomes this very mellow shade of brown, which is pretty cute.

The color is a beautiful match to my Kaweco Macchiato. The shading is very pronounced on this ink, and though I find the rust color (when wet) very interesting, I think the color it dries to is pretty nice as well. I would recommend a wet writer for this one because it writes a bit dryer than moderate. The writing sample above was made with my Kaweco pen with a medium nib. So far, I’ve been using it for a week and the flow has been consistent.

I like that it matches really well with Colorverse Pale Blue Dot. It provides a very nice contrast of color and when used together, they really pop on the page.

The ink dries quickly, at a little less than 15 seconds. It has a very subtle (almost imperceptible) green sheen, which you can only see if you use a wet writer. It’s not the most striking ink in the collection, but I like that it’s a nice, delicate brown shade that will go very well with other blue and green inks. Here are a few close ups of the writing sample.
