Today I'm reviewing Diamine Brilliant Red ink.
 
Diamine Brilliant Red is a mid-red dye based ink that could be viewed as a “standard daily red.” It’s neither too pink nor too orange and is from Diamine Inks standard range.
 
Diamine Brilliant Red isn’t a heavily saturated red, it’s less saturated than Diamine Poppy Red and Sheaffer Skrip Red, but it’s that type of bright red.
 
I found it flowed well in the pens I used it with and I saw some shading particularly with the finer nibs. It looked more saturated with my Lamy B nib. Lubrication was good, and it felt smooth writing across all of the papers I used.
  • Flow Rate: Good. Not really wet and dries quickly.
  • Lubrication: Good. Smooth across the paper.
  • Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.
  • Start-up: Immediate.
  • Saturation: Not heavily saturated ink.
  • Shading Potential: Some shading seen.
  • Sheen: None seen.
  • Show-Through:
    • Rhodia Dot Pad - just a little
    • Tomoe River 52gsm
    • Silvine lined pad
    • Generic lined pad
    • Field Notes
  • Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: Not seen.
  • Nib Creep / “Crud”: Not seen, even after over 1 week in the pen
  • Staining (pen): Not seen after several days in the pen - easy clean-up with water.
  • Staining (hands): Easy clean-up with bar soap.
  • Clogging: Not seen. Seems unlikely.
  • Water resistance: Not sold as waterproof and has no water resistance.
  • Availability: Available in 80ml glass bottles, 30ml plastic bottles and cartridges from Diamine Inks web-site and many other outlets.

Thank you, great review. I'll probably stick with poppy red, but it looks like a good alternative for something less "in your face".

You're welcome.  :)  It is quite similar to Poppy Red. Maybe less saturated.

Interesting.  How does it compare to Diamine Classic Red (which I consider the best red if you're looking for something right smack in the middle of the spectrum)?

Thanks for the review.

You're welcome.  :)

 

Diamine Classic Red leans much more pink and is more saturated than Brilliant Red.  :)

Great review!  This looks like a very nice standard red - great for mark-ups.  I will have to put it on my list.

You're welcome.  :)  It's the kind of bright red that teachers might use.  :)
