    Default Diamine Inkvent Calendar 2019- All 25 Ink Colours

    Diamine has produced a limited edition Inkvent Calendar for 2019.
    Screen Shot 2019-10-03 at 06.31.09.png
    It’s in the form of an advent calendar for the Christmas period from 1st December up to Christmas day.

    Each day you open the door to a 7ml glass bottle of a standard, shimmer or sheen ink.

    In the 7ml glass bottles there are 12 Standard inks, 4 Shimmer inks, 2 Shimmer & Sheen inks and 6 Sheen inks.
    Then for Christmas Day there is a 30ml plastic bottle of Happy Holidays medium/dark blue ink that has silver shimmer and also exhibits red sheen

    All of the colours are brand new colours for this Inkvent calendar and they have festive names

    I’m showing you a quick review of each of the inks inside the calendar. They aren’t in the order that you open the calendar. I just picked them out in their groups alphabetically.

    For all of the inks I used my Montblanc Meisterstück Mozart pen with M nib, and my Silvine Originals A4 Notebook that has fairly smooth FP friendly paper. Several standard size pen nibs would fit inside the ink bottles

    They all flowed well and lubricated the pen well across the page without feedback. Those that seemed dryer were mainly the standard brown shades.

    The Inkvent Calendar is available from many stores worldwide from today onwards. Cult Pens in the UK have stock.

    First are the 12 Standard inks:

    That's a lot of work and very informative. Thank you very much!

    I only have 3 Diamine inks (Majestic Blue, Sapphire Blue and Bloody Absinth), so I can't really tell if these ink colours are actually new or just renamed versions of their normal offering.

    You're welcome.

    Diamine advise that these Inkvent inks are all new colours.

    I actually think that they have matched the colors and names pretty well. I would have liked more blues, but that is me.

    When I collected all of the bottles together, and tried to decide what, if any, order to review them in, I eventually settled on looking at the 12 standard inks first. I noticed straight away that there were no blue inks in that batch. I searched again, but found that to be the case. It surprised me too.
    I actually found myself wondering if blue wasn't as Christmassy as red and green.

    Chrissy, were you dipping, filling, flushing, rinsing, drying, dipping, filling, flushing, rinsing and drying ad infinitum between each of those inks with the name nib?
    Much appreciated!

    I have a bunch of Lamy Safari, Nexx M, Al-Star, LX pens that I tend to use solely for my ink reviews. Most of them can be fitted with one of my M nibs. So no, I did not have one pen that I used for every single ink then flushed etc.

    I sorted the inks into Standard, Shimmer, Sheen and Shimmer/Sheen and filled several different pens with different colours, all with named stickers on, then I wrote the samples in my Silvine notebook with them.

    Then I had a clean out session and carefully cleaned out all of the pens and repeated the process until I had written with all of the inks. I don't find it hard to clean out and dry my Lamy pens. They are much easier to get scrupulously clean than some other brands.

    After a few days I had written with all of the inks then scanned and uploaded all of the Silvine pages into Photoshop and collated them, resized them, and uploaded them onto this thread.

    I am aware that I've never posted them singly as Ink Reviews, and I probably ought to have done that at some stage because they aren't in the Ink Reviews Index, but that's how I did them at the time because there was an urgency to getting them all done for the issue of the Inkvent calendar.
