I have decided to review some of my favourite inks. My samples are obtained from Diamine inks.

This one is from the latest Diamine 150th Anniversary inks Terracotta. It's a typical terracotta shade. Inks that are in this colour range seem to be less lubricated than some other ink colours, but it's still a nice flowing ink, and I like the colour. It reminds me of Diamine Ancient Copper but they aren't quite the same. Ancient Copper is more red and is slightly more saturated than Terracotta.
  • Water test on the review form shows this isn't a waterproof ink.
  • Bearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, and the nib was a medium, this ink took 15-16 secs to dry
  • It flows reasonably wet, and lubricates the nib OK I have used inks that have had better lubrication than this one.
  • It is currently available in 40ml cake slice shaped glass bottles.
  • Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.

I recently purchased a Graf von Faber Castell intuition pen whose color is "terra cotta". While the pen color has more orange than this, the name certainly fits.

I'm still trying to figure out how to list all my pens down here.

Chrissy, thanks for the review.  I thought the ink would be oranger.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

It is less orange than Collodi and has a hint of red in it but not as much as Strauss

Thanks for the review.  This is an interesting looking color.

I just got a sample of this, but hadn't tried it yet.  It's a little bit of a different color choice for me (I tend to lean towards blues, blue-blacks, pinks, purples, and greys), but I decided to try and push the envelope a bit.

I hope you enjoy using it. I've pushed the envelope quite a bit with my samples that I'm reviewing

Thank you for the review. I admit it saddens me to see that this doesn't look like a satisfactory replacement for MB Leonardo Red Chalk. Ah well, there's always the next chalky red-brown.

Did you look at Diamine Strauss from the Music Set?
