Caran d'Ache Hypnotic Turquoise

Whew, I'm back! It's been a busy weekend with family in town and lots of work to do. So, let's have a look at another Caran d'Ache ink.

 Hypnotic Turquoise is a really nice turquoise ink. I'm not sure why they went with that name. Maybe they're thinking of the drink? It looks like tropical water, to me. It also looks like some other turquoise inks.

This version of turquoise behaves really well. It's a bright blue that shades a little bit on good paper, but not elsewhere.



Color Comparisons

This comparison shows my only real issue with this ink. It's too similar to other inks that come in at a lower price point. If you get Hypnotic Turquoise, then you won't be disappointed. On the other hand, you won't be blown away by the originality of the ink, either. 

Check this ink out at Anderson Pens and other fine retailers, where it goes for about $36 in a ml bottle.

How does it compare to Waterman South Sea Blue?

I love the colour of that - But is Very wet and spreads quite a lot.
