New Ink Review Diamine Shimmertastic Golden Sands

Recommended Posts

Following on from my thread announcing the launch of Diamine Shimmertastic inks I am happy to post my reviews of them.

 

This one is Golden Sands. This ink is yellow with a great gold sheen

My reviews show you my experiences with these inks in several of my pens. I’ve experimented by having these inks in my pens for weeks, and have intermittently written with them to see how they start, and how they write. I must say I’m pleasantly surprised. I’ve experienced no feathering with any of them, and they have all behaved really well for me.

Diamine recommend that you gently agitate the bottle to mix the particles through the ink before filling your pen. They also recommend that you gently agitate your pen to mix the particles with the ink in your pen when starting a new writing session.

I recommend good FP maintenance when using ink that contains particles. I suggest you clean your pens out a little more frequently than you might do with normal ink.

These inks will come in 50ml glass bottles, and they have either gold or silver particles in them.

Thanks for the review.

This one looks interesting, but I'd worry about how legible it would be.

Thank you so much for this great review, Chrissy! Your writing sample is excellent.

It reminds me of J. Herbin Ambre de Birmanie, which I enjoy. I will pick up some of this lovely ink :)

This is most helpful. Thanks! I ordered a sample before I saw your post. I like having a yellow in the mix, for an accent; Looks like a fine partner for my current favorite, Pelikan Edelstein Amber.
