    Nine Light Green And Green Inks

    I'm on a quest to find the perfect ink for each of many different color and other categories. Here's what I have for greens thus far For greens, I'm looking for two different types of greens: Light green - a beautiful vibrant light tea green with lots of shading.Green - a solid green with some shading and/or sheen, not too blue or yellow, and not dark or olive green. For this review, I've done a comparison of the following inks thus far: Diamine - Emerald Ink sample vialNagasawa Kobe - #19 Minatogawa Lime Ink sample vialVinta Inks - Sea Kelp Leyte 1944 Ink sample vialColorverse - Albert Ink sample vialPenBBS - #159 Bitter Herb Ink sample vialPilot Iroshizuku - Chiku-rin 15 mL ink bottleDiamine Inkvent - Mistletoe 7 mL ink bottleColorverse - Sea of Tranquility Ink sample vialMonteverde - Olivine Ink sample vialI'll update with PenBBS Forgive Green, Diamine Elf, Diamine Holly, and Diamine Sherwood Green once I get all of those inked up in every pen. For each ink, I test on CD Apica notebook, Life Noble notebook, Rhodia dot paper, Tomoe River paper, and HP Premium32 paper. I accidentally bought the cream-colored Life Noble Notebook to use for this, so the colors come out different on that. The pens I'm using are a flex pen (Waterman or Noodler's Creaper with a Waterman nib), Pilot Metropolitan, Lamy Safari, and 2 Nemosine stub pens. Please ignore my "Green" and "Light Green" headings for pages. That was to help me space out the ink samples in my notebooks, but I didn't always categorize inks properly based on what color I guessed they'd be. I also had to start over on the Chiku-rin because I didn't clean the pen out properly, which made it come out way more yellow than the ink actually is. There are also a few drips and smears from other inks because I'm not super careful about stacking paper. I'm not particularly concerned with water resistance in general, so I didn't intentionally review that aspect of any ink. I accidentally spilled some water on Diamine Emerald on TR. As you can see, it's not super water resistant, lol. I had a hard time taking images that looked properly lit and accurately captured the ink colors. Mad props to all those lovely reviews on FPN with beautiful images. If anyone has any tips/suggestions about how they do their ink review photos and uploads, please let me know.
  2. This sample was a gift from a fellow FPNer. I will also include a few comparisons to two other bright green inks, I have had inked in my pens lately. http://sheismylawyer.com/She_Thinks_In_Ink/2014-Inklings/slides/2014-Ink_229a.jpg http://sheismylawyer.com/She_Thinks_In_Ink/2014-Inklings/slides/2014-Ink_236.jpg

    Diamine Light Green

    This is Diamine Light Green, an ink that is more versatile than I first thought. Recommended on absorbent papers, not low-absorbency papers like the Rhodia used below. The scan below leaves the highlights too pale: they are much more visible on the paper. USAGE DAILY WRITER: Unlikely, unless, perhaps, maybe, if you have a very wet pen BUSINESS: Would not be appropriate ILLUSTRATIONS: Possibly, though the shading could be problematic NOTES: Possible, but probably too pale for all but ephemeral notes PERSONAL: Barely possible for letters LOVE LETTERS: I don't think so. CHARACTERISTICS (All are on a 5-point scale from 0 to 4) FEATHERING: 3 - very good, with slight on cheaper papers. BLEEDTHROUGH: 3 - well controlled SHADING: 3 - perhaps too much for some!? SHEEN: 0 - none seen WATERPROOF: 1 - being generous: the merest hint remains after contact with water. REVIEW Rhodia dotpad. Note that low-absorbent papers like Rhodia is not my favourite for this ink. I will try to upload the usual writing samples later; small samples are at https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/79845-diamine-light-green/?do=findComment&comment=2738483 And you can compare all standard Diamine inks at https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/250366-all-diamine-inks-compared/ Hope this helps.
