Dear Friends,

 

It is my pleasure and honour to share the latest Shimer Inks from Diamine due to be released this month. There are 12 colours and I have been able to review them all thanks to Diamine. I welcome your thoughts and feedback, as always.

 

EDITED TO ADD SCANS

Thanks for the review.

This one doesn't grab me. It seems to be one of those red-leaning browns for the base color, and I'm not generally a fan of those.

Some of the colours in this 'batch' appealed to me more than the first lot, I have to say. Shimmering inks are not on my everyday list but they certainly have a place and as I've a pen they like, which is easy to clean out - Sailor Sapporo B - then I can use them when required.

though all colors are okay, some are better... this one is better...

But I will never buy shimmer inks in my life...

 

Thank you for effort...

I am a fan of chocolate-brown inks, so had to try this. My bottle arrived this week. I really like it. I thought, from previous scans, that it might be more reddish than I prefer, but it isn't.

 

It flows very smoothly in my Pilot Metropolitan with M nib. My experience with other Shimmertastic inks has been good in the Metropolitans, even with F nibs. The pens write smoothly with these formulas and are easy to clean. (I found that the inks weren't as smooth in a Lamy Safari.)

 

When I first start writing, it is very (almost too) shimmery, but after a dozen words or so, the initial burst of shimmeryness diffuses to a very nice, subtle but visible amount of sparke. I think the fix is to shake the pen lightly before each use to mix the ink within the converter.
