I wanted to start the week with ama-iro, “blue sky” despite the grey weather in Istanbul. Nowadays people call it “secret” but the power of imagination was known since the ancient times. Because what we call, also calls us. As Rumi says “While thirsty seeks for the water, water seeks for him/her as well”. So I did called blue skies all this week with this sky blue ink. As understood from the photos, the blue sky I was looking for just popped up at least for the photo shooting.
Ama-iro is a vivid blue, almost to be called joyful. Even though it seems it is not possible to use it in official documents or in business life, I think it is great for making amendments or corrections on any document. You can still be seen without conceiding from your formal attitude 🙂
I used Lamy Lady for the writing sample. I almost not have the heart to use it. You can follow this link for my review on that pen. It is a medium nib but a wet writer.
When you look up closely, you can see it has a medium shading. You can see it mostly on the bottom of the letters.
The closest colors to ama-iro is Lamy Turquoise and J. Herbin Bleu Pervenche while Pelikan Edelstein Topaz is a bit darker from ama-iro. You can also follow the link to remember its review.
Did you like this blue sky?
