  1. Hello, This is a first and a mini review. To me personally the colour, shading and sensation are important. Yet, I can forgive many things, if the ink has that ​je ne said quoi factor. In preparing this review, I appreciated many times more, the work of so many reviewers, that I've enjoyed over the years, thank you. From what I understand Red Cashmere, in its powdered form, was the genesis of Black Stone inks, in Australia. I was intrigued by this ink, thinking it would be a nice sheening variation, albeit darker version of Rouge Hematite, but cheaper. My sample came from fountainfeder
  2. I've been asking for a copper/terra cotta ink from Noodler's (preferably water resistant,) but knowing how Nathan Tardif is a one man business with a lot on his plate, I decided to make my own with his inks rather than wait. With just two, Habanero and Beaver mixed in equal parts, I was able to closely approximate Diamine's Ancient Copper. It seems stable in the vial and pens. It seems to behave well, with little feathering or bleed-through, and surprisingly, it seems to have a bit of water resistance. It's a very pretty rusty brown and a good color for drawing. The Noodler's lineup doesn't re
  3. Recently, I got myself a bottle of Monteverde Fire Opal - because I liked the colour, but also because I hoped that it might finally prove to be that rare ink in this particular colour range to be free of nib crud issues. Alas, I have now found that it suffers from the same sort of nib crud that users of similar-coloured inks like Diamine Ancient Copper will be familiar with. When used in pens with a less-than-perfect cap seal, the usual frothy crud builds up. The same happens during long writing sessions - crud gradually builds up along the length of the nib slit and the nib-section and nib
  4. Diamine Ancient Copper has been reviewed at length, I arrived at it looking for an alternative to Montblanc Leonardo and other inks; it's a good looking ink, but it didn't do it for me, so I gave it way; this is what remains in a Lamy Vista with an F nib. The paper is Fabriano Ecoqua, it seems to bring out the best of several inks, it's smooth and dries much faster than Clairefontaine and Rhodia. First row of other colours: Ama Iro, Kon Peki, Souten, Équinoxe 6, Tsuyu Kusa, Asa Gao. Second row: Inti, Ina Ho, Lie de Thé, Yama Guri, Ajisai, Myosotis. Third row: Chiku Rin, Vert Empire, V
  5. I have been looking to develop my "Warm Earth" tones in general and my red earths in particular. Diamine seemed to have some good options (I have my "Cold Stone" colors from De Atramentis). I couldn't really find a good comparison so I narrowed it down to the few that I was most interested in and plumped for 30ml bottles rather than samples. It's neither scientific nor thorough, but I thought I would post my initial impressions as I couldn't find anything similar. . . . . which is a scan but the colors for Ochre and Rustic Brown are not true at all. I tried taking a photo, which is a much
  6. My latest ink is Diamine Ancient Copper I haven't used Diamine Ancient Copper for quite a while. I had a sample from Goulet's Ink drop ages ago, and it's an ink I never went back to after using the sample. I was surprised how much I really liked the colour, and wondered why I didn't have it in my collection. It's a rich dark copper colour with plenty of shading. I am aware that some users have had a problem with Ancient Copper drying onto their nibs, so as soon as I received my sample, I filled my Lamy converter in my Lamy Next M pen and left it in there for a few days without using it. I did

    Co-Razy-Views - Grand Canyon Colors

    I've seen all these colors when visiting the Grand Canyon except the one ink named Grand Canyon. Oh, this is a Co-Written - Crazy - Comparison - Review. http://sheismylawyer.com/She_Thinks_In_Ink/2014-Inklings/slides/2014-Ink_523.jpg
  8. 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! .
