Some of those names sound really interesting -- I hope the inks live up to my expectations.

I just realized that for sheer number of different colors (bottles and samples) I have more Diamine inks than even Noodler's inks....

I think they are interesting. :)  Blood Orange especially.....  ;)

 

I definitely have more Diamine inks than I do Noodler's inks.  :D

Good to see new colours & we should celebrate the absence of pernicious glitter additives.

Interesting!  We look forward to seeing your reviews.

My Dear Chrissy,

 

Ah me!

 

When does passing along info become enabling / teasing? :)

 

A tip of the hat to the Diamine ink boffins for their ongoing contributions.

 

Bye,

S1

+1.

If the new ones are as good as Oxford Blue and Classic Green, I'll be happy.

My humble apologies, there was no intention on my part to tease. ;)  I was asked if I might care to pass along this information. At the moment it's only a case of something being better than nothing.   :)

OK well I just got the go ahead. So these are quick swabs of the 8 colours: (I had to colour adjust Lilac Night) These are in a Tomoe River thicker paper notebook.

Thank you for sharing, Chrissy! Espresso looks suspiciously like a shimmering ink. It could be sheen though.

 

For me:

 

Yes: Golden Honey, Purple Dream, Tudor Blue.

Maybe: Lilac Night.

Maybe not: Espresso, Burgundy Royale, Dark Forest.

Nope: Blood Orange.

Espresso is as it says on the tin. Like Espresso coffee.  :)  It may be a little light in my swab image. It's dark brown.  :)

 

I wanted to show there was a difference between Purple Dream and Lilac Night and I hope I did. In fact I still think Lilac Night is a bit more lilac than blue.  :) It is the most difficult one for Photoshop to get right. (Think lilac blue)

 

Blood Orange is lovely  :wub:

 

(As far as all of these inks go, think wet flow.... ;) )

Welll, I expected different colors than the ones I see. I guess I'll try them anyway but they don't look thrilling. SUrprisingly the only ink that catches my attention is Dark Forest. I expected it would be dark green but it looks like some dark teal. Oh well, at least there's some inky fun ahead of us.
