    Seafoam Green Mix

    Hello All! In my quest for the perfect teal- green mix, I have been tirelessly scouting ink reviews... However, much to my dismay, not many of them are readily available in India. Options are fairly limited to Diamine, J. Herbin, some colours from Private Reserve, and some from Mont Blanc. So I played mad scientist instead. This mix uses Diamine Marine and Kelly green. Unfortunately, I added random quantities of ink till I had a colour I liked, so I don't have exact proportions. However, I will mix some more when I run out of the current batch, so I'll post ratios then if anyone's interested! On to the ink itself... I have had it mixed in an ink bottle for two weeks and in a (disposable) pen for over a week with no reactions atall so I am certain the mixture itself is stable. As I was hoping, mixing two well shading inks meant that this particular mix also has good shading properties and it looks fetching. I am very satisfied with it; it's the exact colour I was looking for, shades well, and has no flow problems. Dry time on Rhodia is a bit prolonged (around 35 seconds from a wet pen) but I don't really mind. Water resistance is zilch. Here are some shots. The colour is true to life on my monitor.
  2. I found a stash of old reviews that got misplaced during a house move, so this one's pretty old. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/540/cKbAUr.jpg
  3. So here are three quick reviews and a little comparison of three green Diamine inks. Diamine Meadow Diamine Apple Glory Diamine Kelly Green First up Diamine Meadow http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/originals/75/5a/c1/755ac13c392f4cf4f56b70a7f14322da.jpg Next is Diamine Apple Glory http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/736x/1b/97/31/1b97313634443a587ae09ff598a27c0d.jpg And last but not least is Diamine Kelly Green http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/736x/60/09/a9/6009a9035e927690cee06b612335d03b.jpg Here is a comparison of all the inks using a Goulet 1.5 nib. (The last one is De Atramentis Jane Austen, which is a sedated, dark, calm green. It has a definite grayish tint when compared to the Daimine greens here.) http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/2d/eb/5d/2deb5d0622f5bc0098b74c53890f87f9.jpg For more pictures please visit here: http://tessymoon.wix.com/tessymoon#!fountain-pen-love/cp8t
