About Parrot Fish Van Dieman's Ink Underwater (30ml) Series

Van Dieman's Underwater (30ml) Series fountain pen ink is the 7th ink series release from this Australian ink-maker, and they describe this series of inks as their most experimental, ambitious series to date. The Underwater ink series includes 16 truly unique ink colors. Each of the ink colors is inspired by the majesty of the ocean (ocean flora, ocean fauna, oceanic regions), and all the myths and mystery that go hand and in hand with the deep blue sea.

The Van Dieman's Underwater Inks include several shimmering inks that include some surprisingly unique color sheens as well as other qualities that seem to pull from the surreal color wheel of the underwater world.

A beautiful and well-behaved ink. I find myself reaching more often for the pen filled with it.

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.

Underwater See Turtle is a really lovely shade of green one with just a hint of teal which makes it dark enough to stand out on the page. It's a nice wet ink and works well in all the pens I've had it in.

Maybe my expectations were raised too high. I really wanted to be wowed by these inks. Don't get me wrong as they really are quite beautiful. That said, having used Diamine Blue Edition inks and Robert Oster inks with shimmer and sheen in much larger volumes and in comparable or better bottles, I felt a bit let down by this series. Some of them felt really dry and unless I kept shaking the bottle, the mica wouldn't stay in suspension for long. Even on Tomoe River, it was sometimes hard to see the sheen or shimmer on some of the colors. In this instance, I think I let FOMO get the better of me.

I love the deep color of this ink. I really wish it was the shimmering version but I’ll take what I can get from this brand.

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.
