    Ink Review: Diamine Scarlet

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Scarlet A bright pink ink from the standard range. ‘Scarlet’ might make you think of bright red berries, but this Scarlet ink is definitely pink. The colour band on the bottle label is pink. Imagine this Scarlet as a raspberry colour. Pink inks are notoriously difficult to reproduce online, and I’ve seen some online swabs and writing with Scarlet that look quite different to my sample. So, as usual, I have colour corrected my writing to resemble as closely as possible the shade that I can see on the paper. This messed up all of the comparison inks, so I corrected all of those separately as well as I could. Flow Rate: Good. Not too wet in the pen & paper combinations I used.Lubrication: Good with the M nib on several different papers, a bit more would have been nice with the Safari F nib.Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.Start-up: Immediate.Saturation: Good.Shading Potential: Some shading seen.Sheen: None seen, although it might be a sheener if I splatted an ink spill.Show-Through:Rhodia BlocCiAK by InTempoField NotesCheaper generic 80 & 90gsm printer papers & lined pads.Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: Only a little seen on Field Notes.Nib Creep / “Crud”: Not seen, even after over 1 week in the penStaining (pen): Not seen after several days - easy clean-upStaining (hands): Easy clean-up with bar soap. Two hand washes required with liquid soap.Clogging: Not seen. Seems unlikely.Water resistance: Not sold as waterproof, but shows reasonable water resistance.Availability: Available from Diamine Inks web-site and many other outlets.
