Pick A Colour…



Recommended Posts

any colour :)

 

fpn_1375256129__diamine.jpg

 

100 bottles, one for each of Diamine's standard colours.

 

If something is worth doing, it is worth doing to excess :lol:

 

Now I think I can wait buying more ink at least until Diamine releases their new boxed set in the autumn….

Oh yes. The Bilberry is lovely. From memory a little hard to clean sometimes, but a nice ink.

 

Now I should review them all, shouldn't I? :-D

Need you ask? :D

Yes, reviews with color-true writing samples would be greatly appreciated. I've got several of their inks but am not adverse to having additional Diamine colors. I've been very pleased with general characteristics of the brand.

I always get a kick out of these "no affiliation" notations when it's blatantly obvious the poster has absolutely nothing to do with the brand, company, etc. beyond being a customer. It must be a feel-good/feel-important thing. So I'll note up front that nothing I write here on this forum is influenced by any financial-gain motivation.

We need comparisons between the different colors... In groups of 2... That would make 4950 reviews... Enjoy!!

Only have two Diamine bottles, but those I have I really like. (Blue Black, Sherwood Green)

This does cry out for a project of some sort... reviews of each seems like a stretch but writing samples maybe

My idea was writing samples of all of them, ordered by hue and all done with the same pen(s), to have a single comparison of the lot.

Does this one become part of the new set, or is it a standalone colour? They don't have it yet, of course. I got their entire current catalogue.

It's a stand-alone colour and I've an 80ml bottle but I assume it will be in the 30ml as well. Shouldn't be too long before it's available for buying. I don't know what's in the new set - yet.

Swap you a sample for any other Diamine colour? (And I do mean any :))

Hi,

 

I reviewed ten 'keystone' Blue inks, then did comparisons amongst them. The reviews were interesting enough, but not the comparisons - too much rote work, and not enough fun.

 

So yes indeed, let us have a passel of Reviews, then we can gently request specific comparisons.

 

Bye,

S1

These are the 30 ml bottles, so 3 litres of ink in total. The prices are on the web site: I got a small discount and free UK shipping.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
