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.
I'm currently reviewing some of my favourite Diamine inks. This one is from the Flowers Gift Set and is called Pansy. Water test on the review form shows this isn't a waterproof ink, but it's better than some.Bearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, this ink dries reasonably quickly.It flows very well and lubricates the nib very well. No start-up problems noticed.It is currently available in the gift set in 30ml glass bottles that are stable and user friendly.It's also now available in 30ml plastic bottles as refills.Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.
