Customer Reviews

Van Dieman's Ink Wilderness(30ml)
I love this ink. I use red when I review and mark up documents and the Firetail Finch is absolutely brilliant. It is a deep, vibrant red that really gets your point across. It flows well and I’ve had no issues with it at all. The bottle is epic too. I definitely recommend.

Van Dieman's Ink Wilderness(30ml)
The color I purchased has a strange and amazing connection to me which I will get to at the end. The color is a rich, deep blue which just plain, ole looks good on the page. Flow is consistent and smooth with a hint of shading. Being from Australia gives the ink some extra points. Van Dieman's is assembling quite a collection of wondrous colors and a collection is lacking without at least a few. Robert Oster has some competition. I have the Devil's Kitchen, named for a lake. I fish at a lake in Southern Illinois by the same name.

Van Dieman's Ink Night Collection 50ml
Just received the red lightening color and I LIKE it!!!! It is a darker red that leans slightly orange and it has a very fine shimmer that shows up in the big swatch but is not very noticeable in a writing sample. I was pleasantly surprised!!!

Van Dieman's Ink Wilderness(30ml)
I'm crazy about this shade: Azure Kingfisher. It's the first Van Diemen's ink I've tried and I'm a fan. This one is incredible, how it goes down onto the page blue and as it dries the light chartreuse shimmers rises. I need to try other Van Diemen's shimmers.

Van Dieman's Ink Underwater (30ml) Series
I bought the Abyss. It is in my brand new AERO, with EF nib.. I may never need any other ink and pen . 100% delighted.

Oh i did buy the light yellow green of this series.
In my past experiences with yellow- greens they are plagued with flow problems.. ( Alan Hills colorverse- i adore that color but it gave me performance issues)
Not Van Dieman's "Sea Dragon"
ink.. I bought this ink to pair with an Opus 88 "Halo" ( ulta clear) pen.. what a beautiful sight to see and functional... If you are asking your self "should I try Van Dieman's Inks.?" The answer is ABSOLUTE YES.

If the underwater series is a little too "experimental" for your tastes.. i implore you to try things from their eariler series .. if still
available ... i have put all my previous ink choices away or have given them away to FP friends..I now have just my favorite Van Diemans and 2 DeAtramentis and one teal Akkerman ink, in my oresentlt inked pens. Lots of non stop use without fussing about performance issues.

The red ink does have a kinda sparkle to it.

Van Dieman's Ink Tassie Seasons(30ml)
I really like these inks. I have summer tiger snake and winter morning frost. The colors are great. The shimmer for morning frost smears when dry though, which isn’t something I usually experience with shimmer inks.

Van Dieman's Ink Underwater (30ml) Series
This ink is so gorgeous. It does need to be shaken periodically to keep the particles in suspension, but I have used it on Tomoe River and Life paper and it is stunning. I did include a drop on my colo-ring testing book page and found that the particles can smudge off, but the written words did not smudge there.

I like the saturation and quick drying time. Color is reminiscent of D’Atrementis Document Grey but with a gold shimmer. Subtle.

Van Dieman's Ink Wilderness(30ml)
Van Dieman's Wilderness ink in Azure Kingfisher is a beautiful medium turquoise with a gold shimmer. When first using from the new bottle, not much gold gets drawn up, so the shimmer is very intermittent, but this will improve as you get further down in the bottle. The color is so nice, you won't care. Good quality ink.
