My latest ink sample sent to me from Diamine is Diamine Flamingo Pink

I received a PM from 'Thelonelyinkwell' asking me if I had a sample of Sailor Renoir pink ink that I could send him. Sadly, I don't have that ink. However, it started me wondering if Flamingo Pink might be a similar type of colour.
This ink is a bright salmon pink shade that leans slightly towards the blue side of the spectrum. It's reasonably saturated, and exhibited plenty of shading in my tests.
It wrote straight away without any hard starts or skipping with both of my pens on several different papers. The flow is very good and so is it's lubrication at the nib. Although the flow feels slightly dryer than some of the inks I've recently tried, in that I couldn't see wet ink glistening on the line above the one I was writing, it didn't feel particularly dry. The dry time was quite quick and there were no smears after it was dry.
It has no water resistance at all. The pink inky water spread very quickly.
I didn't really have any inks that were the same colour to compare it against. The ones I have are more blue, although Diamine Carnation was the only pink ink I have that is similar.

 

  • This isn't sold as a waterproof ink,and shows no noticeable water resistance.
  • I used a Lamy M nib and a Lamy 1.1mm nib and this ink took 15-16 secs to dry on my Rhodia Dot Pad 80gsm paper. No smear when dry.
  • It exhibited good flow and lubrication and I found it well behaved to write with. I saw no skips or hard starts while I did my swabs and dry time tests.
  • It exhibited some show through on cheap copy paper.
  • It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles or 30ml plastic bottles
  • Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.
  • It's a reasonable price.

Thank you for an excellent review of an ink color I would have never believed I would consider..............until I got MB pink & probably only then because so many posters were denouncing it as a color choice! BUT I had just bought a clear Stipula Passaporto & thus I filled my first demonstrator with my first pink ink. Since then I found Caran D'Ache's pink to be equally fun & even bought a bottle of Iroshizuku Momji.

 

Pink IS cool & this one looks as nice as ANY I have seen.

I'm quite a fan of pink inks.

 

I've readjusted the scan in Photoshop to make it closer to the actual writing.
