Following on from my thread announcing the launch of Diamine Shimmertastic inks I am happy to post my reviews of them. This one is Red Lustre. This ink is bright red 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 bottle to mix the particles through the ink before filling your pen. They also recommend that you gently agitate your pen to mix the particles with the ink in your pen when starting a new writing session. I recommend good FP maintenance when using ink that contains particles. I suggest you clean your pens out a little more frequently than you might do with normal ink. These inks will come in 50ml glass bottles, and they have either gold or silver particles in them.
attika89 posted a topic in Ink ComparisonsHi everyone! I've got a chance to review some of Diamine's new Shimmering inks line! I've posted about half of the line earlier, but luckily here is the other half as well! Huge thanks to Bureau Direct and Diamine! http://www.cultpens.com/files/cp/imagelibrary/brands/product/diamine.jpg The pen I used is a Cerruti 1881 Zoom, with a really wet stub nib. Paper is Tomoe River! If the photos wouldn't show up, take a try here. Prepare for the photo-flood! Lets start with a shot of all 10 inks of the line: http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/01/274745e6f6a56d1d38fc057ff31bd317.jpg Closer look on the "new" five: http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/dd7a35b46035a89beb3071cd24ea7bb1.jpg First of all, here is a scan: http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/e3c7f169c59a721b49e0866bd6bd5182.jpg Sparkling Shadows http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/1fb3e92c056de676d1d9b20f6a3ea9da.jpg http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/0898c1d7b4453c1a11a806cc5e09806f.jpg http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/74e10e8aa3fedae1a345c28afaa82a9e.jpg Magical Forest - a really nice surprise for me! http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/f9ce03550b308e534677ccf8ba45266c.jpg http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/1d62c39e3812f6723d69027196919aba.jpg http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/a0940a8de53f0343895615bdd40f6b67.jpg Red Lustre http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/8193f4f203e5874922e441ee3272ebf0.jpg - I need to correct myself here. It has a lot more pink when it dries, but when it's wet, it is really a nice red. http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/cf354ceda3ad4cc06d24b1d0e9317c3e.jpg http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/8ebf3fbdf24fcab896b427d0f1c08362.jpg Golden Sands http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/6da99c2df856f03eedb373abb47967e0.jpg http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/e0fbdc06f5057a269fb34e95cc339953.jpg http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/d0bc0fc5042e0ced6c6c1283fe712b6c.jpg Night Sky - Look at THAT! http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/90afde2a3085ed4cafdf13d20100192b.jpg http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/17cf245850ef28b4bb252e9ae3069990.jpg http://kephost.com/images/2015/10/02/a833b5c7344378423676302c663114af.jpg That's all folks!
