    Diamine Cornflower Ink Review

    Hello again to all my FP friends, [This review has been sitting on my desk for months and I finally got around to posting it. Stay tuned for a comparison of Diamine Cornflower and Penbbs #116 Cornflower.] Diamine needs no introduction on this board. Suffice it to say that they have been making inks for over a century and produce many, many beautiful hues, a lot of which are prone to feathering and bleed through on everyday office paper. This ink up for review is from Diamine’s Flower Series. It is named after the cornflower (centaurea cyanus) which can be various shades of blue or lave
  2. Penbbs is a Chinese online fountain pen community similar to FPN. They not only talk about inks but also produce their own inks every year. Each series consists of ten to fifteen inks and 2017 marks the release of Penbbs’ fifteenth ink series. Due to Chinese postal restrictions, these inks are virtually impossible to obtain outside of China. Within China they are extremely affordable (21 RMB or about US$3 per 60ml bottle) and can easily be purchased through the Chinese online shopping giant Taobao. This ink up for review is from Penbbs’ tenth series. It is named after the cornflower (centaur

    Diamine Flower Set

    Currently Diamine has two box sets of inks: the Music Set and the Flower Set. Visvamitra has a great comparison of the former. Personally I find the Music Set colours too gloomy. I prefer the bright colours of the Flower Set. Check out the following links for my individual review of these 10 inks: AsterBougainvilleaBurgundy RoseCarnationCornflowerGerberaIrisMarigoldPansyTulipBox The inks come in a sturdy box, separated by some cheap-looking black paper. Sometimes it's very difficult to take out one bottle because it's too tight. Labels Each label features an image of the corresponding flow

    Retro51 New Popper!

    A Pen for a Flowery Friend Here in Maryland we've sprung forward and now we're just waiting for the last of the snow to melt and to get this vibrant pen into our hands. As we speak Retro 51 is sending us their newest popper pen-- the Bouquet. This Popper has a cream colored body with vintage-inspired painted wildflowers flowers and greenery all over. The section, clip, and trimmings are a lux gold color. It's a gorgeous gift for people who love flower patterns and great rollerball pens (think: Easter, Mothers Day, friends with a green thumb). We'll be getting these pens in at the end of th
  5. Greetings Folks, I'm trying to find an ink that matches the color of the flowers on my mother-in-law's plant (it's a Thanksgiving Cactus). Having a bunch of ink samples sent to my location is cost prohibitive so I need to find the closest ink and commit to a bottle. Attached are a couple pictures of the flowers and one that I used MS Paint to check the color with. I'm thinking possibly something around Herbin Rose Cyclamen, Noodler's Sha's Rose or Qin Shi Huang might work, but I don't have them to check. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    De Atramentis Dianthus

    Here is a little review of DeAtramentis Dianthus! Thank you to my friend Elle who gave me this ink sample! In short: It is a fun, bright ink with bright saturation. However, it does tend to feather and bleed on less than the best papers. I even had some feathering on Rhodia Premium Ivory - yikes! Overall, while I love the color, the feathering bugs me. And since I already have some very similar colors I opted to not purchase this one. Still a fun color to check out!

    New Diamine Flower Set

    Just a brief announcement and short review of the forthcoming ten new colours in Diamine's Flower set. This new collection will surely be a popular addition to the growing Diamine range and I think the colours certainly will be a hit. Obviously, the names of the inks are subjective: no-one can categorically say that the 'Marigold' for example isn't the same colour as that flower that person has just picked for the table vase. Also, it must be remembered that how I see the scanned examples, isn't necessarily how others may view them on their particular screens. Well, that's just the way of it.
