Another appalling handwriting sample - but shows the ink which is the point!

The last line should read 'much prefer' not must prefer!!

How does Ultra green compare to Woodland Green? Thanks!

Wow! That is saturated all right. Looks very nice - I might want to invest in Diamine.

Wow! Thanks for the review. You have most awesome handwriting! That is a brilliant shade of green. I'm wondering now how it compares to PR DC Supershow Green. It's a bright green. IMO.

Thanks! I love Woodland Green, for a first go at green ink for me it was right on the mark. Ultra green looks interesting and may look into it when considering a lighter green.

Oh thanks - it changes alot, the last bit was a 'short round' moment............it does the 'tall thin' too but I'm feeling particularly short and round myself so I guess that figures! roflmho.gif

Am very pleased with Diamine 'Ultra Green'. Through a B Tibaldi nib in an ED Mercury, it is wet, bright and dries to a well shaded, strong colour. One of my students said, "That's beautiful!".

Compared to the slightly muddy 'Emerald' Diamine, 'Ultra Green' is the same colour as the (expensive) emeralds in my wife's earrings.
