    Default EFNIR: Diamine Moon Dust

    Extra Fine Nib Ink Review: Diamine Moon Dust

    This is review #248 in my series. Here's the YouTube video:


    Post-recording notes: Cleaning was very quick and easy - even the glitter seemed to come out more easily than usual. All the images show pretty good color reproduction. Audio may seem odd at times - the kitty was crying and my stomach was rumbling for breakfast, so I had to mute here and there...

    (I'm editing right now, and clearly I'm a heartless ogre for having ignored those pathetic cries! They sound like cheeps and squeaks in the sped-up video.)

    Scan of Completed Review


    Absorbent Paper Close-up (top is puzzle paper like thick newsprint, bottom is old 20lb copy paper)


    Line width (One of the lines used for dry time. Magnification is 100x. The grid is 100x100m. The scale is 330m, with eleven divisions of 30m each. The line width for this ink is roughly 316m. With 248 inks measured, the average line width is 296m.)


    Microscope image (100x with 400x inset. The 100x grey is darker than what my eyes see. Not that interesting, but I liked the abstract rose look of that hunk of glitter, so I magnified it more. )

    Little boy is highly offended, but fortunately, doesn't know whether to be offended at you for calling him a mouse, or me for making him sound like a mouse... Either way, we're in luck because he's just be distracted by a spider and forgotten about being offended....

    Not offended in the slightest - amused.

    A cake and an ice cream pop floating on a gray sea with feathers? Maaaaan. From whence come such worlds?

    I like gray inks, and Silver Fox/Fuyu-Syogan are in my collection, but have decided that glitter is my enemy. This one seems well-enough behaved, though.

    As always, thanks so much for the Tuesday Treat (and though I haven't forgotten the day, it's been THAT kind of morning). Even if I am not buying a particular ink, I love to see them displayed.

    From the Microverse, of course!

    I haven't gone quite that far - all other forms of glitter are the enemy. Glitter in ink is OK.

    You're most welcome! Sorry it's been that kind of morning! (For me too, but starting last night. My poor little boy has worms (roundworms), so we had to hurry off to the vet today to get his first dose of a more powerful dewormer. ) Hope things are / start looking up for you!

    Thank you as always Liz - I rely on these to know that it's Tuesday. Since my brain stopped working properly, these little touchstones are very comforting.

    This is probably my favourite 'silver' ink. I've had others that I've flirted with, but this seems to be the one I come back to.

    I think I'm as nervouth as the little snek about what's coming next...

    You're very welcome! Sorry about whatever is up with your brain - hope it improves, and in the meantime, I'm happy to provide a comforting touchstone!

    Nice. So many greys. Glad you have on that tops your list! I'm still hunting for mine - my tastes seem to change far too often.

    Hello,

    Today must be Wednesday!
    I will soon need to get the wife to put up another shelf to hold all the nice inks being tested and displayed.
    I really like this ink. I don't know until I try, but I get the impression that this ink will match really well as a 'shadow ink' for a nice deep brown/walnut coloured ink on coloured card.
    Thank you for the review. Awesome as expected, and never disappointed.

    One cannot have too many ink shelves! Interesting idea on using it as a shadow-ink - shadow with sparkles. I pulled it out and looked at it next to a couple of browns, and I'm not sure - I guess it would depend on how the brown leans (yellow, red, green, grey...) and how dark it is - I think it would need to be quite dark. Anywho, you're very welcome, and thank you!
