I've heard that the release date for these new inks is 4th November; Fountain Pen Day, so I'm posting separate reviews for them on here. I assume they will come in the same type of bottles as the previous set of shimmer inks, but I haven't seen the retail bottles yet.

 

  • Currently I only have samples that Diamine very kindly sent me to test, and to review 'if I wanted to', but I've noticed that my samples don't need much shaking to mix the particles in, and the pens need very little shaking once they are filled.
  • Generally speaking, I found all 12 of these new shimmer inks to be wetter than all of the other shimmer inks I have used.
  • I have had these inks in these pens for over 2 weeks now. Every pen/ink combination has started straight away without a problem, and I have experienced no stopping or skipping.
  • Some take longer to dry than others, and a couple just soaked into the paper straight away. The most saturated inks will show through and bleed through on cheap paper.
  • None of them are waterproof inks.
Diamine Shimmer Inferno Orange is a bright orange ink that is a similar colour to Diamine Pumpkin. It's a quite saturated ink with gold shimmer. The gold shimmer shows up quite easily. I used a Lamy Nexx M (Orange) that has a 1.1mm nib and I had no trouble seeing the golden effect. This ink is quite wet and has quite a long dry time.
The first picture is a scanned review form, and the second is a photo. These have been adjusted with Photoshop to get the colour you see to look as close as possible to the actual ink colour.

Thank you for the fabulous review Chrissy, this is one of my most favourite of the new Shimmer Inks!

If there is righteousness in the heart, There will be beauty in character. If there is beauty in character, There will be harmony in the home. When there is harmony in the home, There will be order in the nation. When there is order in the nation, There will be peace in the world. Bhagawan Shri Satya Sai Baba

Thanks Chrissy and Bhavna for your reviews - I've got this plus Pink Glitz on the way to me now (Bureau Direct and Cult Pens now have stock - went with the former so I could grab KWZ Grapefruit and Honey at the same time...).
