Today I'm reviewing Diamine Warm Brown ink

  • Flow Rate: Good. Feels wetter and looks more saturated in broader nibs
  • Lubrication: Good on several different papers.
  • Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.
  • Start-up: Immediate.
  • Saturation: Not a saturated ink
  • Shading Potential: Very good
  • Sheen: Not seen
  • Show-Through: 
    • Tomoe River 52gsm & 68gsm.
    • Cheaper generic 80gsm printer papers & lined pads.
    • Field Notes

​The reverse of the image shows more show-through than is actually present on the paper.

  • Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: Seen on Field Notes.
  • Nib Creep / “Crud”: Not seen, even after over a week in the pen
  • Staining (pen): Not seen - easy clean-up
  • Staining (hands): Not seen - easy clean-up
  • Clogging: Not seen. Seems unlikely.
  • Water resistance: Not sold as waterproof, but is water resistant.
  • Availability: Available from Diamine Inks web-site and other outlets.

You're welcome.  :)  Yes it's difficult when there're so many colours to choose from.  :D

Thanks for the review.  I may have to get myself a bottle of this; I really like the color.

I like this type of soft brown - one of my missing diamine inks. Now going on my wish list. Thanks for the nice presentation. I really like that you show the ink on a variety of paper, since that gives a very good sense of its general behavior.

You're welcome and thank you for your kind words. I bought a set of Notebooks from Goulet pens and found they are small versions, so I thought I would use them as my ink testing paper.

How did I miss this ink before?  (I know -- they have too many inks in their lineup....  I now have more different Diamine colors (between samples and full bottles) than Noodler's -- and that's saying something (although for bottled ink I probably still has more Noodlers).

I'd be curious as to how it compares with Diamine Ochre (an ink I haven't yet made up my mind about).

Thanks for the review.  And possibly, well, not....

You're welcome.  :)  When I was trying to decide what inks to compare it with, I never thought of Ochre or Burnt Sienna  :doh:  :headsmack: I must have a look at Warm Brown beside those 2 inks.

 

Actually I regularly use a 50/50 mix of Ochre and Burnt Sienna in my Aurora 365 Brown. You know how I like to match inks with pens  :D Warm Brown could save me the trouble of mixing.  ;)

 

Ochre is definitely going to be more yellow than Warm Brown though
