Ink Review: Diamine Flowers Gift Set: Pansy

Recommended Posts

I'm currently reviewing some of my favourite Diamine inks. This one is from the Flowers Gift Set and is called Pansy.

  • Water test on the review form shows this isn't a waterproof ink, but it's better than some.
  • Bearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, this ink dries reasonably quickly.
  • It flows very well and lubricates the nib very well. No start-up problems noticed.
  • It is currently available in the gift set in 30ml glass bottles that are stable and user friendly.
  • It's also now available in 30ml plastic bottles as refills.
  • Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.

Chrissy, do you find it to be chalky?

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

Yes it was more chalky than the others I have reviewed, yet it had the benefit of a B nib. However, I had to syringe it into a cleaned cartridge, as the Boheme doesn't take a converter. I can't see that should make any difference though. The flow should be the same. On the other hand, my Boheme has never been what I would call a wet pen

Thank you for sharing. I love pansies. They do actually grow out here a few months of the year. (We call those months winter, but people who actually know what winter is scoff at us.)
