In the early days of my Blenko avocation, I did not know the colors very well and could not discern the colors on a computer screen very well. Because many of the blues and especially Turquoise do not reproduce well, I would often look at one on my computer screen and compare them with the blues that I had and think, “I don’t have that blue color.” Not until they arrived in the mail did I realize that I had another Turquoise. It is such a great color I could not part with them once I had them. I thought that I had enough Turquoise water bottles until they were made in Mini size. Turquoise in Optic would tempt me to purchase a couple more!
This particular example was purchased because it was a different shape (in the shoulder area) than any I had seen previously. I have subsequently decided that the shoulder curve was probably flattened by the finisher for some unknown reason. Originally, I thought that perhaps there were variations in the water bottle mold, but having seen no more quite like this example, I have dismissed that thought.
