Today I’m reviewing a sample of Diamine Cool Green

It’s an interesting greenish/turquoise. This shade reminds me of my Viridian Green pigment. I found it had good flow while I was writing with it. I didn’t see any spread or feathering, nor any woolly line with the F nib. I saw a couple of signs of woolly line on the Oxford paper and when I first started writing on the Midori paper with the wet Jinhao M nib. However, that nib had just been dipped into the ink.

Sadly, on the review form, I managed to get some water from the water test to run all the way across the page before I blotted it. So some of the writing in the Further Notes/Observations has been water damaged.

Cool Green looks quite saturated, especially with my broader nibs. The M and BB nibs also made it look a darker colour. It exhibited plenty of very attractive shading with all of the nibs I used.

I found it behaved very well, and I like it. I didn’t experience any clogging or clean-up problems with it. In fact clean-up was very easy. It washes off hands with soap and water.

It’s darker and more saturated than Pelikan Edelstein Jade.

  • This isn't sold as a waterproof ink, but it has reasonable water resistance.
  • Bearing in mind the review form paper I use is thick with a quite shiny surface at 100gsm, and I used several different nibs, this ink dried very quickly with the F nib, but as it’s a wet ink it took longer to dry when I used my broader nibs.
  • No smear after dry.
  • It exhibited good flow and I found it very smooth to write with. I saw no skips or hard starts while I did swabs and dry time tests.
  • 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.

I believe this is one of the re-named ones; formally Dark Green. Not quite my colour under either name, but thanks for the review, Chrissy!

It used to be called Dark Green. It's now called Cool Green. The name changed at the same time as Umber changed to Green Umber.

Never noticed the existence of this one. Is it new?

 

Not my kind of green, too much blue for me. Great review though, as always!

You're welcome :)
