Pantone hath spoken…

Pretty! I like that color!
Do you know of an ink that matches it?
I was going to ask you, Inkophile! Haha. Violette Pensee does look the closest to my knowledge. I tried to photograph it but it views more blue on my camera, although in person it is closer to the Pantone color.
– Caran D’Ache: Storm (you included this on a previous post of your favorite inks), but it is more muted.
– De Atramentis Pearl Violet looks like it could be a contender from some online pics, but I don’t have a sample to test myself.
I think Pensee is the lead contender.
My collection doesn’t even come close to including all the purples on the market so there might be something available that is an exact match. But out of the ones I do have, J. Herbin Violette Pensee, Waterman Violet and Rohrer & Klingner Cassia look the most like the Pantone swatch as viewed on my monitor.
My monitor skews blue so that makes it hard to be certain. It is called orchid which ought to say something about the color. Or then maybe not. 😉
Violet Pensee from Herbin?
Pensee looks more blue in the light at my desk. Montblanc Violet looks closer, but daylight is better for color matching. I will look at some swatches tomorrow. Another other suggestions?
Yes, I was wondering as well if there is an ink that matches it.
Chime in if you have any nominees.
