The Milky Way in 3P

This is the latest in The Milky Way Series. The 3P refers to 3 Purples: P, VDP and VVP (Purple, Very Deep Purple, and Very Violet Purple). We made the colour mix at the suggestion of one of our clients and are so thrilled with the results that we plan to make more. Of course, no two of our pens will ever be identical, but we will try to get the same look and feel when we make future pens.

What we have found impossible to capture in a photograph is the way the ‘stars’ resemble diamonds as you twirl the pen in the light. If these were real diamonds, then this pen would have roughly 250 0000 of them!

If you would prefer a different colour, please also take a look at our other options in this post: Sparkly Purple, Midnight Blue, Deep-space Black, or Martian Green; alternatively you could request your own colour and we will do our best to oblige.
