The new Sailor “Ink Studio” ink line is the result of 20 000 color blends by Sailor’s inkmeisters who blended these inks at the request of customers during Ink Studio events. Hundred colors were selected from 20000 blends. Each color was carefully chosen and packed in a small 20 ml bottle that remained unnamed and received a number instead. Not just a number but a specific blending code.
Enjoy your journey testing these inks. There are some very special coulours to explore like nudes, watergreens, pencil like greys … Not only for writing but also for artistic use !
