Today we're talking about our review of Organics Studio Santiago's Sea Blue , (Formerly named Ernest Hemingway, as of late 2019 this ink was renamed to Santiago's Sea Blue). Santiago's Sea Blue has a beautiful greenish-teal base color with that metallic burgundy sheen seen in similar Organics Studio inks. Read on to see more:

Smear Test (Dry Time):
- 30+ seconds – Like other OS inks, Santiago's Sea Blue takes over 30 seconds to dry, and days later will still put a dusting of ink on fingertips when touched.
Drip Test (Water Resistance):
I enjoyed the more green-leaning teal of this ink's base color, as well as the more balanced used of the sheening quality versus some of the other Organics Studio inks that we carry.
