Pick A Colour…



Recommended Posts

any colour :)

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.
