Match For Diamine Carnation


Davros
 Share

Recommended Posts

I love Carnation ink. It behaves great, and the color is really appealing. Most of the inks from the Diamine sets are nice, but I don't need more, either because they have some unappealing behavior (sensitivity to hand oils, Gerbera, I'm looking at you), or because I don't really need another purple-blue in my life, or there's a good enough duplicate out there. But I'm coming up blank on Carnation.

 

Mostly, I'd like to find a replacement/duplicate for my own peace of mind; it's hard to use ink with joy when you know there's a limited supply, or it could be discontinued at any time.

 

Before I order a package from the UK full of 30 ml bottles of pink ink, can anyone offer me a match? Iroshizuku's Kosumos seems to be the closest, but it's more expensive and not *quite* punchy enough. Carnation has this weird brazenness to it that just does something for me. Maybe one of the Sailor Kobe inks? (Yes, I know that means a package from Japan instead of the UK, but . . . still.)

You might want to check the Goulet's site and maybe try a sample of the Iroshizuku Kosumos before getting a whole bottle. You might also try a sample of Noodler's Shah's Rose, which is a very nice shade. There are some reviews of it in the review section, as well.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Funny, but that color isn't what I think of when I think of pink carnations.

 

I think of the color that I show below as Tsvetayna by Noodler's. Which I don't think you should buy. Djinn of the Eternal Flame is an amazing ink, but it isn't easy to find. It's below also.

How about J. Herbin Rouge Caroubier in a wet pen. (I don't like it in a dry writer).
