I won this blank from jsolie as part of my 2018 super bowl winnings. My wife picked it out as the blank for her next pen. My first attempt was a disaster, I back painted white and it was looking all washed out until I eventually blew it off the tube. Actually was kinda glad about the blowout because it wasn't looking very good anyway. I then kept putting off my next attempt because I knew I only had one shot left. Thanks to the recent discussions about backpainting and color choice, I decided to do a little test with my tiny bit of excess. I went with a matching light purple. Really happy with the end result, and most importantly she is happy with it too.
