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).

Summary:

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.
