    Blue-Black Advice

    I like Diamine a lot. I'm still looking for the right Blue-black, so which Diamine do I get- BB itself, Twilight, Denim? All suggestions and opinions welcome, as subjective or objective as you like. But your suggestions have to be Diamine
  2. How does this look? I'm trying to learn a pretty handwriting hand. I wrote this with a Pilot Petit with fine nib, and Diamine Ancient copper on Clairefontaine paper Any suggestions are welcome! .
  3. Hello all: I recently purchased a bottle of racing green ink from Missing Pen in Germany. However, when I opened the bottle the contents looked like "sludge" - with a nasty thick, oily, bubbly sheen. I have already contacted Missing Pen, but has anyone experienced this? Just kind of bummed since I was so looking forward to it. Best regards, Patrick
  4. After falling in love with several Diamine colors, I've decided to take the plunge and make a good sized order to Diamine in the UK. Being in the US, the markup on Diamine products is horrendous. For example, the best price I've seen in the US for 30ml amounts of Diamine ink is Goldspot, who charge $7 per with free shipping. If I buy direct, however, the cost falls to about $3.50 per with a shipping cost of $16 approximately. This puts the break even point for a UK order at 4-5 bottles. Obviously, it pays to bunch the purchase owing to the flat shipping rate from the UK and to buy more rather than less. My anticipated purchase size is about 12 bottles. After reading many reviews and trying some samples, I have my heart set on: Sargasso Sea Oxblood Eclipse Black-green Which leaves about eight bottles in play. I am hoping that the good people of FPN can help me fill out my order. I love deep, dark blues, shading, sheen, and non-smearing inks. Being a lefty, the last is an important quality. Slow drying is death to an overwriting lefty. I have a lovely Pilot Custom Heritage with a Falcon nib that works wonders at flex, so sheen is definitely a consideration. My plan is to choose based on the eight or so most popular responses. I am interested in the best in show, the Diamine colors that are exceptional examples of whatever color family they draw from. In the event of ties, I will favor greens, yellows, oranges, and browns, which I have fewer of than other colors. But, that being said, please give me your best in show opinion irrespective of my underrepresented colors. I will report back on what I order and provide some reviews on the ink forum as to my impressions. Thanks in advance for contributing to this most important project.
