12 Days of Inkmas: Day 7 – Pen Saijiki Syurei

Inkmas 2019

Review by Laura Cameron

I’ve never tried any of the Pen Saijiki inks, so when I saw Syurei (4mL sample, $4.00), I thought the end of 2019 was the perfect time to snag this coral ink and swatch it for Inkmas!



Syurei is that orangey-pinky coral that was Pantone’s 2019 color of the year. I’ve collected a few of these coral inks this year, and I have to say they’re all super similar.

As you can see Syurei comes in just a smidge lighter than Diamine Coral, and with it’s light pinky bits, very close to J. Herbin Corail des Tropiques. It’s also similar to Pilot Iroshizuku Fuyu-Gaki, but that one is a bit more orange than pink.

All in all, a lovely color wrap up my year-long pursuit of corals!
