    Ink Review: Diamine Aqua Blue

    Yesterday I posted a review of Diamine Beau Blue ink Today I'm reviewing a much brighter, more saturated ink within the same colour range: Diamine Aqua Blue I would describe it as a bright cerulean blue, or cornflower blue. It leans very slightly towards the green edge of the blue colour spectrum like Waterman Inspired Blue and J. Herbin Blue Pervenche and it's very saturated with wonderful shading and a great 'halo' outline effect. No noticeable sheen. It felt really wet in my Lamy Al-Star with B nib, and because the B nib lays down more ink, the colour looks darker and shows up more shading than when I used the Lamy NexxM with M nib. Both pens I used wrote straight away without any hard starts or skipping. The flow was very good, not at all dry with both pens and the lubrication felt good along a line. The dry time on all of the papers I used was 10-12 secs. Once dry there was no smearing. Like Diamine Beau Blue, Diamine Aqua Blue isn't at all water resistant. This isn't sold as a waterproof ink, and shows no noticeable water resistance.Bearing in mind the review form paper I use is thick with a shiny surface, and I used Lamy M and B nibs this ink took 10-12 secs to dry using the M nib. No smear after dry.It exhibited good flow and lubrication and I found it smooth to write with. I saw no skips or hard starts while I did swabs and dry time tests.It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles or 30ml plastic bottlesDiamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.It's a reasonable price.
