Diamine Teal vs. De Atramentis Pigeon Blue
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
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
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
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
(*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
The same applies to Singapore based Arters of the utterly friendly Yitpeng and WeetekOng
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
