Ink Review: Diamine 150Th Anniversary Terracotta


Chrissy

Recommended Posts

I have decided to review some of my favourite inks. My samples are obtained from Diamine inks.

 

This one is from the latest Diamine 150th Anniversary inks Terracotta. It's a typical terracotta shade. Inks that are in this colour range seem to be less lubricated than some other ink colours, but it's still a nice flowing ink, and I like the colour. It reminds me of Diamine Ancient Copper but they aren't quite the same. Ancient Copper is more red and is slightly more saturated than Terracotta.

  • Water test on the review form shows this isn't a waterproof ink.
  • Bearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, and the nib was a medium, this ink took 15-16 secs to dry
  • It flows reasonably wet, and lubricates the nib OK I have used inks that have had better lubrication than this one.
  • It is currently available in 40ml cake slice shaped glass bottles.
  • Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.

I recently purchased a Graf von Faber Castell intuition pen whose color is "terra cotta". While the pen color has more orange than this, the name certainly fits.

I'm still trying to figure out how to list all my pens down here.

Chrissy, thanks for the review. I thought the ink would be oranger.

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

Thanks for the review. This is an interesting looking color.

I just got a sample of this, but hadn't tried it yet. It's a little bit of a different color choice for me (I tend to lean towards blues, blue-blacks, pinks, purples, and greys), but I decided to try and push the envelope a bit.

"It's very nice, but frankly, when I signed that list for a P-51, what I had in mind was a fountain pen."

I hope you enjoy using it. I've pushed the envelope quite a bit with my samples that I'm reviewing

Thank you for the review. I admit it saddens me to see that this doesn't look like a satisfactory replacement for MB Leonardo Red Chalk. Ah well, there's always the next chalky red-brown.

Did you look at Diamine Strauss from the Music Set?

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..
    • A Smug Dill
      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
