Diamine Pumpkin Ink: We wanted to thank you for all of your responses to our previous ink reviews and giveaways! There have been many of you who have asked for a fall themed ink review, and we are happy to oblige. So, to celebrate fall, we are reviewing the Diamine Pumpkin Ink. Diamine has been making inks for 150 years, and has always produced quality. Pumpkin definitely has lived up to that reputation.
As our treat, continuing reading for a chance to win the bottle of Diamine Pumpkin Ink we used for this review.
While testing Diamine Pumpkin, we found the following characteristics that you may find helpful:
We used a J. Herbin dip pen on a Rhodia dot pad. The dip pen lays a line similar to a Japanese Fine.
There are two options available when purchasing Diamine fountain pen ink. They come in 30ml plastic bottles, or in 80ml glass bottles. The Diamine Pumpkin ink that we used in this review was a 30ml plastic bottle.
A 30ml bottle of Diamine ink weighs in at only $7.00 USD. That’s a great price for such high quality ink. If you love Pumpkin and just can’t get enough of it, the 80ml bottles are only $15.00 USD.
Diamine Inks’ dry times vary from ink to ink. Diamine Pumpkin had a dry time of roughly 14-15 seconds. This is a slower dry time, but there are many benefits that outweigh this minor inconvenience.
We experienced absolutely no bleeding while testing the Diamine Pumpkin Ink, not even where the ink pooled.
There was no feathering during our test with Rhodia Paper. However,although results may vary from paper to paper.
We let the Diamine Pumpkin Ink dry for about three minutes, then we ran a wet cotton swab over it. Pumpkin is clearly not a waterproof ink. The grid we drew smeared, bled, and even showed feathering. If you’re looking for waterproof, you’re out of luck here.
Although Diamine Pumpkin Ink is a beautiful color, we were unable to produce any shading in this review. You might be able to produce some shading through the use of a broader nib. However, Pumpkin holds it’s own despite the lack of shading.
Conclusion about the Diamine Pumpkin Ink
Diamine Pumpkin Ink is a great way to usher in this fall season. Whether you want to find that perfect combo with your fall pen, or you simply love pumpkins, Diamine Pumpkin Ink is a must have.

Beautiful Ink!! One of my favourites! I would love to see any purple ink reviews! Thank you! God Bless & Love You All Bunches!!!
It is such a vibrant orange
This is such a bright orange. Great for autumn. Should try it out.
What a perfect color, just in time for Halloween.
Now, here’s a color I’ve been curious about for a long time. And with it being a Diamine ink, it’s got to be good. 🙂
I’m liking Diamine Oxblood right now
Cool. I’d love a Robert Oster Sublime review.
That is ORANGE!! Great for Halloween indeed.
my favorite ink is kon peki by iroshizuku
I would love a review of a P. Akkerman ink.
Love the reviews! Keep up the good work, and thanks for the chance to win!
I can’t believe I’m falling for orange ink!
Good review of what appears to be an ink that does everything we want, and none of what we don’t want. Thanks.
I would like to see a shimmering ink reviewed for the Christmas Season perhaps a green or red.
I’d like to see some more organics studios ink
Nice! Just in time for Halloween!
Diamine Pumpkin is a wonderful ink. Really enjoyed writing with a sample of it.
Diamine inks are my favorite. They have such gorgeous colors and they aren’t too wet but write well even in an extra fine nib.
This is a gorgeous orange !!
I’d love to see some battle of the sheen reviews by color groups and across brands.
Hallooween and pumpkins great combo
So perfect for the time of year! Thanks for the giveaway!
I love a good orange! Thanks for the offer.
Pumpkin was one of the first oranges I tried last year. Great review and a great ink. Have you considered reviewing the new Organic Studio Walden?
Just needed an orange ink 😉 As for my favs, Pelikan 4001 and Iroshizuku(s)
Perfect color for fall harvest time!
Very timely color… Great choice!
Great fall ink. Pumpkin everywhere!
Looks useful for underline and make special comments in documents.
Pumpkin is a beautiful ink with a bit of shading, and that’s what I like.
I don’t have an orange in my growing ink collection yet. This will be a good one to add.
Looks beautiful and just in time for the season!!
Orange is one of my favorite colors
I wonder how this compares to Sailor Apricot
Could you mix the orange with Diamine chocolate brown to make pumpkin pie?
This wasn’t exactly my favorite ink at first. After a while, it has started to grow on me. It’s a great ink to use for highlighting messages and homework. It really does stand out like an orange cone on a highway of boredom.
It would be cool if you would review the new Reddit ink, Diamine Earl Grey!
Gorgeous orange! Would love to try it! Will have to get some.
Great color! Need to buy some so I can try it out!
One of my favorite colors! Love this orange.
Wow this looks amazing! Just in time for Halloween!
I requested my current obsession, which just happens to be ORANGE! Pumpkin is perfect and I need to order a bottle.
Great color! Want it!
Anything purple or I want to see the new Diamine Shimmertastics & how they compare to the others colours already on the market. God Bless & Love You Bunches!!!
i like it. a bit like apache sunset
