Diamine Aurora Borealis



Cursive Child

Nice, well behaved, ink from Diamine. Well lubricating, vivid blue-green closer to the green end of the spectrum. The significantly compressed scan is showing a greener and lighter tinge than it is. E.g. the Ku-Jaku comparison I have shows up bluer than on the scan.

Nice review of a nice ink. I'd say more a greeny turquoise than a teally one. A shot of yellow wouldn't have hurt. Fits well to the Northern Lights I've seen myself up north in Canada.

Thanks for the review rdugar !

 

Hi Lapis, you say that this ink is more greeny turquoise than teally. Did you actually see this ink in real life or just on your monitor ? I never saw this ink until today.

I may have to give this one a spin. I'm finding that I like greens for letter writing.

Thanks for the review. I have too many teals that I don't use already or I might give this one a try! lol

Thank you for showing us that Aurora Borealis by Diamine is a teal/green ink, so I know I should avoid it.

Some of these teal blue/green inks have nice shading, but for some unknown reasons I just can't make myself like this shade of colour.

I use blue inks mostly, and I like most shades of blue (I'm just talking about the colour here, not the other characteristics of the inks), blue-blacks, purple leaning inks, red leaning inks, but not green leaning inks... I also do not love too much turquoise leaning inks (again because they often look greenish).

So thanks for showing us. Diamine has so many other blue inks I still have not tried, I'll probably opt for Imperial next... :)

Thanks everyone. I myself started out with a preference for dark, bright blues, but moved to darker blue greens.

 

Can anyone give me tips on getting an accurate scan uploaded here? My hp scanner scans a jpeg to about 6 mb. I have to edit and crop to a smaller size, but then fpn reduces the resolution further. The image above is quite different from the original scanned image i see on my laptop.

Have been wondering whether to get this or not, jury's still out, but I appreciate your review and very beautiful handwriting!

Have you tried taking pictures of your reviews? This might help and then you can crop and adjust as necessary. Good luck!

Nice review! I like this ink a lot. The color is great, and the shading is even better :)

I picked up a 30ml bottle of this ink a couple of months ago, and it rapidly became a favorite. Love the teal color, the behavior is very good in any pen I've tried it in, and the moderate water resistance means I can use it on postcards without (too much) fear. Thanks very much for the review!
