My latest ink is Diamine China Blue I haven't used Diamine Diamine China Blue before so I thought I would try it out. It's a single dye pure blue. There are no purple, or any other coloured dyes added. Think of the blue you see on blue and white china. It's that sort of blue. It lives up to it's name very well. It's more saturated than I expected, and has some water resistance, as many blue inks do. I would call it an everyday blue, not quite Royal Blue, that suggests a little added purple or red, but a really nice, unassuming plain blue. It's quite similar to Waterman Florida (Serenity) Blue
This has always been an odd little paper. I've known for a while that it and Diamine China Blue don't get along. Whether it's coming from a super-fine nib or being slathered on thick, China Blue will fade away and be barely noticeable after about 24 hours on this paper. Well, I found a new ink it likes to throw down with: J. Herbin Bleu Myosotis. Here are the two inks fresh on the paper: http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/834/87vbp.jpg And after approximately 12 hours: http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/839/8j8l.jpg And approximately 24 hours: http://imagizer.imageshack.u
