Hello Friends,

 

I have had the pleasure of reviewing Diamine's latest series of Shimmer inks, a set of 10 with 5x silver particled and 5x gold particled inks. I have tried out reviews in the Breeze Notebook containing Tomoe paper in contrast to using my trusted Black n Red Quad. The results are quite something, however, capturing them hasn't been easy. I look forward, as always to your thoughts and feedback. The set will be available in the next few weeks.

Oh my! These comparisons are lovely and help see the colors in perspective. I prefer this as opposed to an isolated color as I can see how it works with others in the series.

Absolutely! Labeling the paper is lovely, too, as it helps determine performance on known products. Major appreciation for your work.

Agreed. These are spectacular. The Ivy might be my favorite, and I'm not a fan of purple ink, but this ink is niiiice.

Thank you! Golden Ivy is very seriously spectacular. This one is really lovely too, I was impressed as I like my purples deep and moody.

Thanks for the review -- and not.  (This one was, I think, already on my short list.)

You're welcome! I love it, but then who doesn't love a dark purple with added shimmer?

Don't see a ton of difference between this and purple pazazz (one of the few shimmer inks I use regularly)

Really? Pazzazz is much darker and richer in saturation. The first ink in the comparison above is Sailor Shigure, which is similar, not Arabian Nights.
