KWZ Brown Pink

Diamine Merlot

Herbin Poussiere del Lune

Diamine Tyrian Purple

 

The KWZ, like many others from Konrad, looks almost black when pooled, with a velvety, matt sheen. It is the most free-flowing of the bunch. The Diamines have a very slight golden sheen, more evident on Tomoe than on this Rhodia; Tyrian Purple is the least saturated of the bunch and exhibits a more pronounced halo effect when used with the flat nib. Poussiere de Lune is more blue than the others. If I had to pick a favourite, it'd be Tyrian Purple :wub:

They do, with Tyrian Purple it's a bit more evident, but they all do.

Thanks for this.  I had been curious about Brown Pink.  Didn't like Poussiére de Lune when I tried it a few years ago, and I was apparently ambivalent about Diamine Merlot.  But like Tyrian Purple a whole lot.

VERY NICE


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
