Ink Review: Diamine Flowers Gift Set; Bougainvillea
Chrissy posted a topic in Ink ReviewsMy latest ink is Diamine Flowers Gift Set: Bougainvillea I decided to review a brightly coloured ink today. It's Bougainvillea, one of the Flowers Gift Set inks. All of the Flowers Gift Set inks are bright colours, and this one is no exception. It's a bright carmine pink. Great fun for Spring. I'm looking ahead hopefully. Bougainvillea has very good flow and lubrication. I had no problems with it while I was writing. It felt quite wet and I could see it glistening all along the lines as I wrote. It really suited my Lamy Nexx well.Although this isn't a waterproof ink, it shows quite good water resistance, as do many Diamine inks.Bearing in mind the paper I use is thick with a shiny surface, and I used a Lamy M nib, this ink took 17-19 secs to dry. That's slower than some other inks I've reviewed recently.It flows through the pen very well and lubricates the nib very well. I saw no skips or hard starts while I did swabs and dry time tests.It is currently available in the Flowers Gift Set of 10 x 30ml glass bottles, and you can now buy 30ml refills in plastic bottles.Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.
