    Diamine Majestic Blue

    Diamine Majestic Blue After reading so much nice reviews in Diamine inks I had to buy 2 bottles of their inks when I was at La Couronne du Comte. I bought the lovely teal a blue/green ink which reminded me a bit of De Aramentis Pigeon blue and this Diamine Majestic Blue. I can say one thing in advance: I love these inks. To start with I love the shape of the bottle which for me is a mixture of classy and classical Btw did you know that Diamine uses almost the same lids on their bottles as De Atramentis does. Anf there is one other thing it has in common with De Atra
  2. Diamine launches the 2019 Inkvent Calendar today. As I understand, it will available broadly at £67. The Calendar is made up of a mixture of standard, shimmer and sheening inks and festive colours created for the calendar as follows: 24x 7ml and 1x 30ml inks. The unis are well behaved, easy to use and clean. I will upload photos shortly, in the meantime, they can be found here: https://www.instagram.com/p/B3FCm3zjkxX/?igshid=nv76alm4erjx

  7. Following on from my thread announcing the launch of Diamine Shimmertastic inks I am happy to post my reviews of them. This one is Brandy Dazzle This ink is chestnut brown with a great gold sheen My reviews show you my experiences with these inks in several of my pens. I’ve experimented by having these inks in my pens for weeks, and have intermittently written with them to see how they start, and how they write. I must say I’m pleasantly surprised. I’ve experienced no feathering with any of them, and they have all behaved really well for me. Diamine recommend that you gently agitate the
  8. I’m reviewing samples of the new set of Diamine Shimmer inks. This one is Diamine Electric Pink This is a saturated pink ink with silver shimmer. It is along similar lines to Caran d’Ache Divine Pink for being a pink ink that’s easy to read. I found it a wet and well flowing ink. It had good lubrication with the pens I tried it with. It’s a saturated ink, especially for a pink ink. With broader nibs it looks more saturated than it does with finer nibs, although it’s wet enough to show the silver shimmer with all nibs. It showed through on some of the papers I used. The pens I use

  10. Im reviewing samples of the new set of Diamine Shimmer inks. This one is Diamine Arabian Nights This is a blue-black ink that leans lilac. It is a similar colour to Diamine Eclipse, Diamine Damson and Diamine Vivaldi. It has silver sheen. I found it a wet and well flowing ink. It had very good lubrication with the pens I tried it with. Its a reasonably saturated ink. With broader nibs it looks more saturated than it does with finer nibs, although its wet enough to show the silver shimmer with all nibs. It showed through on some of the papers I used. The pens I used were Pilot VP
  11. I’m reviewing samples of the new set of Diamine Shimmer inks. This one is Diamine Arctic Blue This is a dark turquoise/cerulean blue ink with some natural red sheen and silver shimmer. It is a similar colour to Pilot Iroshizuku Ku-jaku. I found it a very wet and well flowing ink. It had very good lubrication with the pens I tried it with. It’s a saturated ink. With broader nibs it looks much more saturated than it does with finer nibs, although it’s wet enough to show the silver shimmer with all nibs. It showed through on some of the papers I used.

  14. Calligraffiti is about abstracting calligraphy, type and graffiti with traditional precision and modern unbridled self-expression. Working with adults and sixth form students from Medway (non of whom have had any type or calligraphy experience) we have tried to push the boundaries of calligraffiti a little further. Taking inspiration from angelic names and ethereal words we have explored the possibilities of abstracting both the traditional tools and ink mediums in a ground breaking workshop utilising custom made pens and brushes with 10 Diamine inks (Oxblood, Sunshine Yellow, Denim, Apple Glo

I have just tested 78 samples, which I’ll be posting over the coming days. Here is my third Diamine review featuring 15 test swatches of Green fountain pen inks. Inks tested: Racing Green, Evergreen, Classic Green, Green Black, Green Umber, Umber, Wagner, Spring Green, Light Green, Beethoven, Delamere Green, Wood Green, Ultra Green, Dark Green and Cool Green.

    Ink Review: Diamine Eau De Nil

    Today I’m reviewing Diamine Eau de Nil The name means: 'Water of the Nile' I’ve seen previous reviews for Eau de Nil, and decided to try it out. I’m pleased I did because I really like the colour. It’s like a blue with added grey that makes it into a blue teal that doesn’t lean very green. It is not a really saturated ink, and it’s a little drier than some other inks I’ve written with recently. However, it’s an excellent shader and I found no problems with the flow or lubrication. I would say it’s well behaved in the pens and on the paper that I used. I saw no skips or hard starts, and i

  19. Diamine sent me samples of their latest 12 shimmer inks to try out, and I've had 12 pens inked with them for over a week now. So here is a quick look at the colours. Maybe I should have separated Caramel Sparkle and Pink Glitz as they look a little similar next to each other, on this sheet. However, Caramel Sparkle is a reddish brown and Pink Glitz is a pinkish red. I'm loving the green, orange and silver. Anyway, this is just a quick look.
  20. Diamine Inks now have brand new, 80ml glass ink bottles, and new packaging, that has been specially designed by Inkymole to go with the packaging that they used on their range of Shimmer inks. This packaging was created by Inkymole using Diamine inks and a fountain pen. The old 80ml bottles have been discontinued, because they are no longer available in sufficient quantity to satisfy demand, so Diamine had to find a new bottle. They took the opportunity of having their packaging for their new bottles redesigned at the same time. The new bottles are the same basic shape but have studs or
  21. My latest ink is Diamine Burnt Sienna I decided to try Diamine Burnt Sienna immediately after trying Ochre because I thought they were similar colours. Burnt Sienna has more red in it and would fit into the reddish browns group along with Diamine Terracotta and Montblanc Leonardo. It's less saturated than Ochre and is wetter, so it takes longer to dry. It wrote straight away without any hard starts or skipping. It lubricated the nib very well, and the flow felt slightly wet. It's a quite water resistant ink. Not as water resistant as Ochre. I could still see all of the writing, even afte

    Ink Review: Diamine Marine

    My latest ink is Diamine Marine As I said in my review for Diamine Havasu Turquoise and Diamine Turquoise I have been collecting turquoise inks and samples since I bought a bottle of Caran d'Ache Caribbean Sea. There are several inks that are a good alternative for that deleted ink and I intend to show you as many as I can. The best match I have found so far is Kaweco Paradise Blue and I will be posting a review of that ink soon. Diamine Marine is another alternative. It's very slightly greener than and has about the same saturation as Havasu Turquoise. It is more like a slightly greenish t
