Chrissy posted a topic in Ink ReviewsToday I'm reviewing Diamine November Rain ink. Diamine November Rain is a Diamine Exclusive ink made specially for sale in Germany. I’ve seen it for sale on Fountainfeder, Papier & Stift and Seitz-Kreuznach websites as well as on Amazon. It comes in 30ml bottles and 80ml bottles. I only have a sample bottle, so I can’t post a picture of the 80ml glass bottle and box. This is a saturated dark green ink with red sheen. It doesn’t have quite as much sheen as the Organics Studio high sheen inks, but has more sheen than what you would call a “standard” ink. In my opinion, Diamine don’t have
I’m reviewing samples of the new set of Diamine Shimmer inks. This one is Diamine Golden Ivy It’s a strong, saturated, dark ivy green ink with some nice shading and sheen as well as gold shimmer. It’s a similar shade to Diamine Tropical Green (150th Anniversary) but leans more green and slightly less blue than that ink. I found it a very wet and well flowing ink.

It's a cream paper, and inks don't show through on there as much as they do on the regular version of Tomoe River.
Today I’m reviewing a sample of Diamine Evergreen It’s an unusual dark green. When you write with it or swab it, it looks like a dark petrol blue, but then it dries very quickly to a dark green. I found it had good flow and lubrication while I was writing with it. I didn’t see any spread or feathering, nor any woolly line with the Pelikan F nib. With the Lamy M nib it looks much darker, more like what you would imagine Evergreen to look like. When I tested it on the selection of papers, it looks darker on them all than it actually came out when scanned. When I took a photo it just looked
