    Ink Review: Diamine Violet

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Violet ink. Diamine Violet is a typical violet purple that leans slightly more blue than red, but is a really attractive colour. It’s an ink from the standard Diamine ink range. Compared with some other lavender/lilac/violet inks it’s a more saturated ink than it first looked, and it can show plenty of shading with fine or medium nibs. I found it flowed well with all of the pens I tried it in, felt slightly wet, and it’s lubrication was really nice and smooth across the page. My review was written on coated printer paper, that isn’t very absorbent, and I saw no spread or show-through. The lines were crisp and it dried quite quickly for this paper. On Field Notes paper it didn’t spread or feather, but I saw some slight show through and bleed through. However, writing on the reverse side of all of the papers I used would be perfectly acceptable as show-through doesn't look as bad on paper than when it is scanned and shown on screen. Violet is not sold as a waterproof ink but showed some water resistance. Flow Rate: Good - quite wetLubrication: Good - felt smooth across the pageNib Dry-out: Not noticed.Start-up: Immediate.Saturation: SaturatedShading potential: Shading seen with F & M nibsSheen: None noticed.Show-Through:Oxford paperSilvine Notebook (not much)Rhodia Graph (not much)CiaK by InTempoField NotesHobonichi Techo paperTomoe River 52gsm paperSpread / Feathering / Woolly Line: Not seen on any paper I used, even Field NotesNib Creep / “Crud”: Not seen, even after several days in the penStaining (pen): Not seen after several days - very easy clean-upStaining (hands): Easy clean-up off of skin with bar soap.Clogging: Not seen.Water resistance: Not sold as waterproof, but shows some water resistance.Availability: Available in 80ml and 30ml bottles plus cartridges from Diamine Inks web-site and many other outlets.
  3. Here's my first review of the Diamine Music Collection inks, all of which are awesome in my book. Diamine Handel is a soft, red-leaning purple ink with an attractive green sheen on heavier deposits. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/912/5lYrjg.jpg
  4. I would like to be more adventurous in the ink colour which I use. Violet in a lilac tone, is my favourite colour and I'd love to find a water-resistant ink in that colour. However, it must be low maintenance. I'm lazy and don't clean my fps regularly and sometimes leave pens inked up for a couple of weeks because I don't know which I'll want to use next. So no iron-gall or pigmented inks please, as my pens don't get the attention such inks require. Ink easily found in the UK, or on UK websites would make obtaining the inks less expensive. The reason that I would like the ink to be water-resistant is that I use fountain pens for writing in my journal, and I'm clumsy, so very likely to spill something on what I've written. Still being able to read the writing after a wetting is important. Thanks so much for any help.
  5. Hi fellow pen appreciators, I met the Rotring Brillant Unltramarine not long ago in a friendly shop and since the price was good I decided to try it. I wasn't disappointed. Surpised for sure, but not unpleasantly. I couldn't find any other review or even samples so I decided I should make one myself Enjoy The colour was not what it showed on the box, that is the reason for the surprise, it is not really ultramarine in real life. Instead it is a beautiful, dark elegant violet. The colour is not loud, it's reserved. Subtle unobtrusive but proudly violet. I would compare it to the darker colours of the amethyst. If you shine very bright white light on it it shows it's bluer side (as in the scan, where it's considerably bluer than IRL), but under pleasant daylight in a room it is definitely on the violet-lilac side. For the double colour-play I found it hard to really categorise the ink, but I definitely like it. I like it very much indeed. It writes without any issues, I found the ink to be pleasant to use. Dries quickly has no smear. Showthrough and bleed-through is present but not a problem even on the cheap copy paper I use. (I know there are better papers, but this is the kind of paper I use most of the times, so it only made sense to test on this paper). A pleasant feature is that it's waterproof even for longer periods. Saturation, Flow and Shading are all very subjective for the inexperienced like myself, I tried my best to convey my feeling but be warned, individual experiences may slightly vary. Lubrication and spread are left open, because those are definitions I don't really understand with inks so I didn't want to confuse anyone due to a misunderstood notion. This is probably not an ink you could use in any official letters, but for other than that it is a very nice ink indeed. I have bought other Rotring inks as well, I will upload the tests soon This is my first ever review so any advice, complaint and suggestion would be most welcome But let the ink speak for itself: Thanks to SProctor for the nice ink review form!
