Where Do You Find the Ink’s Special Properties Listed?
On the side of each ink bottle, Diamine printed each ink’s special properties (or noted that it was a standard ink.
The second week of Diamine 2021 Inkvent Calendar inks dove into the vivid, deep side of some of our favorite ink colors. We also had a variety of special ink properties included this week with 3 standard inks joined by 1 Sheening ink, 2 Shimmering inks, and 1 sheening and shimmering ink.
A Quick Overview of Day 8 through Day 14: 2021 Inkvent Calendar Inks
Day 8, Raspberry Rose is a standard ink. It does offer some potential for shading depending on the nib you use and your penmanship. It is appropriately named as the ink color appears as a berry pink veering toward mauve.
Day 9, Storm is a shimmering ink. The base ink color is deep indigo, very dark, but definitely not disguising itself as black. The metallic shimmer against the deep dark indigo ink is stunning.
Day 10, Peach Punch is a standard ink with a bit more shading potential than Day 8’s Raspberry Rose. A heavier saturation significantly changes the depth of this vivid orange ink once dry. Even in the lightest shades, Peach Punch is very legible and shows up well on paper.
Day 11, Party Time is a shimmer ink that actually does appear to bring the party. The bright hot pink ink color has shading possibilities in addition to the beautiful purple metallic shimmer with the edges of the most heavily saturated areas showing up almost black in the ink splash. The writing sample shows the smooth consistency and brilliant base color off well with a very clear, legible sample once dry.
Day 12, Stargazer is the only ink with dual properties listed by the ink maker. Offering both shimmer and sheen, this ink has the most depth of any ink that’s come out so far in this year’s inkvent calendar. The traditional dark gray-blue base color is highly accented by the dark purple-black sheen and the metallic shimmer (that sometimes appears green and sometimes gold).
Day 13, Ruby Blues is a sheening ink with the vivid bright blue base ink color really popping against the darker metallic sheen that appears pink, orange, and an almost orangey-red in the right lighting.
Day 14, Red Robin is a standard red ink with orange tones. We saw good shading possibilities and loved the power of this color in combination with the other ink reveals in this week of the 2021 Diamine Inkvent Calendar.
The Bottle Used in the 2021 Diamine Inkvent Calendar:
The bottles used for the inks included in this year’s inkvent calendar are different than in the past (if you like to get an Inkvent Calendar each year). Behind doors 1 through 24 of the Inkvent there are 12 ml fountain pen inks in square plastic bottles. The shape allows for easier dipping (with dip pens) and filling.
