Dear Friends,



It is my pleasure and honour to share the latest Shimmer 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.

Well, thank you for the effort of reviewing these inks. None of them appeals to me though.

 

You are most welcome.

Looks like a lovely grey, but for me, spoilt by the "glitter" content.

 

I've seen how much enthusiasm people were showing towards these inks at The London Pen Show. They are very popular so your reviews of them will please many. Thanks for making the time to review them.

 

Like they say in Dragon's Den though, "I'm out"

 

PS. Your Lexington Grey looks wrong. Waay too light.

Moon Dust is pretty, but seems to be a bit light looking on the page. But thanks for the review. I look forward to review of some the other ones, which might be more appealing.

Intriguing! As it's the closest I'll ever get to moon dust, I'll probably buy this ink. Thank you for your fine and enabling reviews. You have lovely penmanship.

Same comment as the other one. And I like this one too. A great set of reviews too.

From the pictures, I like this one the best. I don't use ink with sparkles in them but have bought some for the bottles.

Has anyone done a comparison between this and the J. Herbin 1670 Story Grey, which is a dark grey with gold sparkly bits? I must admit, I am quite taken by shimmery inks, particularly if the sparkle is subtle.

I will try and upload a side by side as soon as I am able Liz. They are both unique with subtle sparkle, I adore them both!

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
