    Default Ink Review: Diamine Pink

    Today I'm reviewing Diamine Pink ink.

    Diamine Pink is an unsaturated salmon pink dye based ink. It’s from Diamine Inks standard range.
    It’s a fairly bright pink ink, brighter than it looks on my review form, but I found it very difficult to reproduce the exact bright, pinky peach shade of this ink from my scan.
    I found it a well-behaved ink ink to write with. It exhibited some nice shading and felt nicely wet and lubricated in all three pens I used.

    • Flow Rate: Very good. Quite wet.
    • Lubrication: Very good. Smooth across the page.
    • Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.
    • Start-up: Immediate.
    • Saturation: Not a saturated ink.
    • Shading Potential: Nice shading seen.
    • Sheen: None seen.
    • Show-Through: Not particularly noticeable on any of the papers I used. Could write on the back of all of them.
    • Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: Not seen.
    • Nib Creep / “Crud”: Not seen, even after over 1 week in the pen.
    • Staining (pen): Not seen after several days in the pen - easy clean-up with water.
    • Staining (hands): Easy to wash off hands with soap and water.
    • Clogging: Not seen. Seems unlikely.
    • Water resistance: Not sold as waterproof but has a little water resistance.
    • Availability: Available in 30ml and 80ml bottles from Diamine Inks web-site and many other outlets.

    You're welcome. I've made several attempts at getting my scan to look like the exact shade of pink, but it doesn't seem to come out quite as bright as the actual colour.
    It's one of those pinks that make your nib rinsing water look almost orange.

    That's just what I like about it.
