Diamine Teal vs. De Atramentis Pigeon Blue

 

 

2J9ovQ5m.jpg sQ2nJXxm.jpg

 

Both these inks are inspired by colour found on birds

For the people who have no knowledge of birds. The Bird on the Right is a Parakeet which modelled for Diamine and the bird on the right is a bald eagle which inspired De Atramentis :D

 

 

Colour Comparison

 

Just as these birds and their colour are different both inks and birds also have some familiarities

The De Atramentis ins seems to be a bit bright like the colour on the Pigeon. The Teal to my eyes is darker

Ink Behaviour

 

Both inks are very smooth writers ad well saturated. Neither of these ink feater bleed or show through.

Although there is no sheening in neither of these inks they do shade The Pigeon blue seems a little bit better but the diference is neglectible

 

 

 

 

Both inks seem to hold their liquor  ;)

I smeared both inks with wet fingers but both texts stay legible  :thumbup:

 

 

Availability

 

La Couronne du Comte I guess Dennis and Rik would even travel to the moon to get it for you (just pay them a million or 2)  Well it is safe to say that they do almost everything to satisfy their customers… Considering

Bankers have Rothshield Ink lovers have the Goulet Pen Company. Rachel and Brian carry the almost* largest assortment of ink on earth an it's near surroundings    

http://www.gouletpens.com

 

(*almost Dear Amberlea Davis carries the largest assortment in the universe but is not a seller  

 

Larry Post of Australia is a Great Supplier of Stationary and Artist Equipments. They carry a lot of De Atramentis Inks 

http://www.larrypost.com.au/

 

The same applies to Singapore based Arters of the utterly friendly Yitpeng and WeetekOng 

http://arters.com.sg

 

Conclusion

 

Both inks have well saturated beautiful blue greenish colours and both behave very well, they are a joy to write with.

I cannot pick a favourite….

 

 

But I do not have to… I Own Both :D  :D  :D

They look similar in the writing samples, though quite different in splash/swatch!

 

Thank you for the comparison  :)

Wonderful comparison. Thank you!


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

Thank you, but I already have more ink than I know what to do with, so I don't need an introduction to another brand  :rolleyes:

 

Keep well  :)

I believe I have 200 bottles of ink but still cannot stop me buying more...

 

Maybe I should visit a psychiatrist :wallbash:  :wallbash:
