This is my favorite coloration yet. It’s amazing. It also seems like the smoothest finish you’ve attained so far, no? Maybe it’s just the colors doing that. I’d love to know what dyes you mixed and rough ratios to achieve the color, but will understand if it’s a trade secret :)

In these hot and humid days when we all are longing for just a whisper of coolness…you give us this. To drink it in with my eyes is to come away quenched. I feel as though I could dip my finger into the aquifer, create yet another ripple in the depths and come away refreshed. Beautiful.
