For me:

Yes: Golden Honey, Burgundy Royale and Blood Orange.

Maybe: Espresso and Dark Forest.

Rather not: Purple Dream, Tudor Blue, Lilac Night.

 

Thanks, Chrissy! :)

 

You're welcome.  :)

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.

 

Dark Forest is a dark 'evergreen tree' type green. That swab looks too teal and has too much blue in there. It's tricky to get them all accurate on this paper.

Thanks for the pics Chrissy.

 

I can't say I'm bowled over by any of them yet. Espresso looks interesting but Herbin Cacao du Bresil may be too similar, we'll see.

Blood orange also looks promising.

Of the previous 150th Anniversary inks, Terracotta was my pick.


Pens: Conid Kingsize Bulkfiller (2)

Inks:  KWZ Dark Brown , Noodler's Prime of the Commons, Noodler's Black Swan in English Roses , J.Herbin Cacao du Bresil

For me?  Purple Dream, Lilac Night, (maybe) Espresso, and (absolutely  :puddle: ) Tudor Blue.

Okay, yes, I'm predictable -- blue and purple, and a sepia-toned brown.

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.

I will do some reviews shortly.

Tudor Blue is my favourite! I love blue ink...

Purple Dream, Lilac Night & Dark Forest also look lovely.

Diamine & Noodler's seem to be the front runners for blue ink, and Sailor when taking into account their exclusives.

 

How does Tudor Blue compare to other blue inks? Eg Sapphire Blue and also maybe compared to Parker Penman Sapphire? I don't know why, but I thought of PPS when I saw these swatches. Thank you for posting!

I WANT Golden Honey!

 

Blood Orange is a perfectly appropriate namesake for the fruit & will surely please many users.  The Espresso is interesting enough for me to purchase a bottle; I trust you when you say it is "glitter free!"

 

Thank you very much for being so forthcoming with these samples; we are an impatient lot & REALLY like to see what is going to be our next exciting ink to anticipate.

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.   :)

 

 

Hi,

 

No apologies necessary. As ever I appreciate your courtesy.

 

Just that there's an amazing array of inks in the market, and how to keep pace, let alone pick & choose...

Burgundy Royale, Golden Honey, Tudor Blue and perhaps Blood Orange - didn't expect that one.

Thank you.

 

I look forward to the full reviews. The Lilac and Purple are tempting me, the Burgundy might.

I've redone a couple of pages with these inks on the thicker version of Tomoe River paper, in a notebook made by Mebin.. Hopefully these colours might come out better:

 

On Tomoe River paper I'm getting wonderful red sheen from Deep Forest plus a red halo effect from Golden Honey. I'll, try and photograph that.

Diamine always ship to the US from their own web-site.

 

However, these inks aren't 'available' anywhere yet. This is just a preview of some test samples.  :)
