Announcing 6 New Luxurious Colors in Delicata

Announcing 6 New Luxurious Colors in Delicata

 

We love Tsukineko’s Delicata ink. We also love all the Rose Gold decor, fashion, make-up and crafty goodness we’ve seen hit the market recently! We thought, hey we have this metallic ink and Rose Gold would be super popular, and we have this awesome relationship with Tsukineko…maybe we can make Rose Gold ink a reality! Eek! Office dance party (with rose gold balloons)!

In our quest for Rose Gold, we worked with Tsukineko on some other luxurious colors and options to present at the same time. The additional colors we are announcing are: Pink Shimmer, Champagne, Sapphire Blue, Ruby Red and Emerald Green. Also new—small inkpads in all 12 Delicata colors! Not only is anything tiny immediately cute, the smaller inkpad comes with a smaller price.

This expansion of Delicata ink aims to offer the highest quality in metallic pigment ink in full-size and small inkpads as well as a new range of colors to expand your metallic palette. We challenged our artist with Rose Gold and Delicata for the month of September so stay tuned to our blog to see the amazing art our little geniuses cook up!
