Thoughts on pen hygiene:

 

Going by my personal history with both brands, Diamine first: I've had really bad experience with the ink crystallizing on the nib in the worst way with Ancient copper. I transferred it to my TWSBI inkwell so I can use the tube to do a clean fill directly to a standard international converter and the tube was blocked solid due to the clogging of the ink. Others were a little better, sargasso sea was a good one for me.

 

I was never a Herbin man at heart so I don't own any of their standard inks. I tried their Violette Pensee from an ink vial once and marveled at its transformation as it went down purple on the page but the dried to a straight blue.

 

Their 1670 line is a mixed bag. Rouge Hematite is a horrible stainer, but the grey and blue are much easier to work with. I do have emerald already but it's too early to pass judgment on it. None of the 1670 have caused any clogging for me (and I'm a pretty serious offender when it comes to inking pens and leaving them sitting idle for months)

 

It would be interesting to see how these Diamine inks perform in the hygiene department.

How about 'Shimmer-o-matic 3000'

Brilliant!

 

How about Citsatremmihs 3000?

As someone who particularly loves shiny and glittery things, this new line of ink is most definitely relevant to my interests. I will unabashedly be lining up to purchase. :wub:

I think it's great that Diamine, an ink brand that I love, is adding this lineup. I just wish they had chosen a better name. Shimmertastic? Seriously? Sounds like something on a Crayola box or from an episode of Jem and the Holograms.

Those ... are kinda selling points in my book. But then, as my wife often observes, I'm an unreconstructed barbarian. And a goofball. :P

 

Speaking of observations that might be selling points for some (and might be very much not so for others), I note that both Gryffindor and Slytherin are well-represented in the new line. (I take no credit for this observation -- I think someone on reddit noticed.)

I was actually thinking that the movie version of Ravenclaw's colors is also represented. :)

Good...'cause I was feeling left out.

 

I hope it's shimmer and not the huge chunks of glitter that was the only effect I was able to get in my ink-speriments, which were no different from Sakura Gelly Rolls.

My other pen is a Montblanc and...

 

My other blog is a tumblr.

I anticipate the release of the line and reviews thereof. Childishly silly name aside, I'm all for Diamine expanding it's line of high quality inks. I greatly enjoy the Herbin 1670 inks and look forward to other brands offerings in the same vein. Such inks offer employment to inexpensive pens that would otherwise languish in my pen case.

I demand yellow with black sparkles.

Wasn't there a TV show about people who sparkled? Sparkly inks for sparkly people.

Twilight? Oh wait.

The more inks the better. Even if the name is ridiculous. Maybe sparkly inks will bring more people to the hobby.

Breaking news: Reviews can come out on Friday. :)

 

Even if you aren't usually a fan of brown inks, please just look at the review of Brandy Dazzle. :wub:

Yay! I am excited! I was hoping Herbin would release a brown, so I am really looking forward to seeing Brandy Dazzle :)

Oh man, I'm most interested in Night Sky and Purple Pazzazz. Since I started getting into brown inks, I shall look into that as well!

 

I kinda wish that they went with purple/silver but I'm happy with what we've got.

Those who hurt me were not only someone else,

but also those who pretended not to notice. It was my friend.

So, for the next two days, I'm going to be bouncing excitedly in my chair for reasons that I'm entirely incapable of adequately explaining to anyone at work or at home. On the plus side, I've got even more reasons than usual to look forward to Friday. :D

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
