    Diamine Terracotta (150Th Anniversary)

    Love the shading in this ink. Very well behaved and vibrant color.
  2. http://inks.pencyklopedia.pl/wp-content/uploads/Diamine-150th-Anniversary-Terracotta-nazwa.png I present to test the ink Diamine 150th Anniversary Terracotta with a beautiful terracotta color. Ink very well written, very quickly dries out and beautifully shades already at nib F. The ink was developed to celebrate the 150 th anniversary of the company Diamine. The series consists of 8 new colors not available in the standard palette, packaged in a triangular bottle that set the sides together form a closed circle. I would recommend. Manufacturer: Diamine Series, colour: 150th Anniversary Terracotta Pen: Waterman Hemisphere, nib "F" Paper: Image Volume (80 g / m2) Specifications: Flow rate: good Lubrication: good Bleed through: unnoticeable Shading: noticeable Feathering: unnoticeable Saturation: good A drop of ink smeared with a nib http://inks.pencyklopedia.pl/wp-content/uploads/Diamine-150th-Anniversary-Terracotta-kleks.jpg The ink smudged with a cotton pad http://inks.pencyklopedia.pl/wp-content/uploads/Diamine-150th-Anniversary-Terracotta-wacik.jpg Lines http://inks.pencyklopedia.pl/wp-content/uploads/Diamine-150th-Anniversary-Terracotta-kreski.jpg Water Resistance http://inks.pencyklopedia.pl/wp-content/uploads/Diamine-150th-Anniversary-Terracotta-woda.jpg Ink drying time http://inks.pencyklopedia.pl/wp-content/uploads/Diamine-150th-Anniversary-Terracotta-wysychanie.jpg Ink drops on a handkerchief http://inks.pencyklopedia.pl/wp-content/uploads/Diamine-150th-Anniversary-Terracotta-chromatografia1.jpg Chromatography http://inks.pencyklopedia.pl/wp-content/uploads/Diamine-150th-Anniversary-Terracotta-chromatografia2.jpg Sample text http://inks.pencyklopedia.pl/wp-content/uploads/Diamine-150th-Anniversary-Terracotta-txt.jpg Sample text in an Oxford notebook A5 (90 g / m2) http://inks.pencyklopedia.pl/wp-content/uploads/Diamine-150th-Anniversary-Terracotta-Oxford.jpg Sample letters in a Rhodia notebook No 16 (90 g / m2) http://inks.pencyklopedia.pl/wp-content/uploads/Diamine-150th-Anniversary-Terracotta-Rhodia.jpg
  3. Ink Review : Diamine Terracotta (150th Anniversary Ink) Pen: Lamy Safari, M-nib Paper: Rhodia N°16 notepad 80 gsm Review In 2014 Diamine released their 150th Anniversary Ink collection to celebrate - well - their 150th anniversary (1864-2014). In this review I take a closer look at the Terracotta ink from this collection. Terracotta... the name evokes the image of a dry desert with some ancient ruins. The wind blowing across broken pottery - a reminder of the village life of days gone by. Orange-brown sand dunes, and the orange-brown color of clay heated in a furnace. Let's find out if this ink lives up to its name. The color is aptly named. It is a rich orange-brown color that captures the image of broken pottery very well. This is a nice color, adventurous, not dull at all. A color you will want to use again and again. One of my favorites from this ink collection. Not a color for the workplace though - it deviates too much from the norm. While not suited for business correspondence, it's a really fine ink for journaling. OK - but how does it behave on paper ? For this, I did some tests: Rhodia N°16 notepad 80 gsm - drying time ~25 seconds, no feathering, no show-through nor bleed-throughPaperblanks journal paper - drying time 20-25 seconds, no feathering, no show-through and no bleed-throughGeneric notepad paper 70 gsm - drying time ~15 seconds, no noticeable feathering, minimal show-through (only in the darker parts), no noticeable featheringMoleskine journal - drying time ~10 seconds, minimal feathering, definitely very noticeable show-through, some bleed-through (mainly in the darker parts)There is some very nice, but subtle shading in this ink. This is not a dull monotone ink, but one that catches your attention, and brings some variation to your writing. Really nice. This ink behaves very well, even on cheap paper. It even works in a Moleskine journal - which is not at all fountain-pen friendly. Despite the show-through, it's still possible to use both sides of the paper. Our pottery was found in an ancient desert ruin, where rain is seldom seen. The same can be said for this ink. It doesn't like water at all. Short exposure to running water obliterates your writing. Faint traces of the text remain, and you'll probably need an archaeologist to reconstruct the original writing. You have been warned... keep water away from this ink. Conclusion This really is a beautiful ink, that behaves very well on high-quality paper, and is certainly usable on lower grade paper like Moleskine's. The ink has some nice and subtle shading, which makes it interesting. A very fine choice for journaling. Overall score: A
  4. I have decided to review some of my favourite inks. My samples are obtained from Diamine inks. This one is from the latest Diamine 150th Anniversary inks Terracotta. It's a typical terracotta shade. Inks that are in this colour range seem to be less lubricated than some other ink colours, but it's still a nice flowing ink, and I like the colour. It reminds me of Diamine Ancient Copper but they aren't quite the same. Ancient Copper is more red and is slightly more saturated than Terracotta. Water test on the review form shows this isn't a waterproof ink.Bearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, and the nib was a medium, this ink took 15-16 secs to dryIt flows reasonably wet, and lubricates the nib OK I have used inks that have had better lubrication than this one.It is currently available in 40ml cake slice shaped glass bottles.Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.
