About Ocotillo (sheen) Van Diemans Ink Exclusive Decade in the Desert 30ml

Prepare to be enchanted by the Van Dieman's Decade in the Desert Ink Collection, featuring five Arizona-inspired fountain pen inks celebrating Pen Chalet's 10 year anniversary. Each hue captures the essence of the desert landscape Pen Chalet calls home, allowing you to bring the Arizona desert right to your own desktop. Each ink in the "A Decade in the Desert" collection captures a unique aspect of the Arizona desert Pen Chalet calls home, from the vibrant hues of the Prickly Pear cactus to the iconic blacktop of Route 66. The Van Dieman's Decade in the Desert inks are more than just colors; they are stories, memories, and experiences, bottled for you to explore.

The Van Dieman's Decade in the Desert 30ml fountain pen inks are an exclusive series of five inks (four high saturation, sheening inks, and one changing shimmer ink). All five inks in the exclusive collection bring an iconic element of the Arizona desert to life for writers and artists around the world:

Route 66 (changing shimmer ink): This ink writes its own story, and it begins with ultra-high saturation black, as deep and mysterious as a desert night. It's a black that speaks of the countless tires that have rolled down Route 66, an iconic highway that weaves its way through the heart of America and through the Arizona desert. As the ink dries, the journey continues with a rusty gold sheen emerging like the sun setting over the Arizona desert, reminding us of the golden age of road trips. Once dry, a shimmer appears that changes color from green to gold to rose appears depending on the angle of light. The Arizona desert changes from moment to moment and season to season, constantly revealing another facet of its treacherous beauty. Similarly, Route 66 shimmer ink is hard to pin down or limit - it's a road trip in a bottle ready to take you on a journey through the colors and stories of the AZ desert.

Liberty Blue (sheening ink): A confident, bold, blue ink expansive as the Arizona sky, Liberty Blue ink captures the spirit of the Grand Canyon State. Let this high saturation ink take you on a journey through the Arizona landscape, from the endless blue skies on cloudless days to the Colorado River carving its way through the state. The striking red sheen that emerges once the ink dries even lets you experience the fiery Arizona sunset reflecting off the surface of any pool of water as the sun slowly gives way to night. Lose yourself in the majesty of the Arizona desert, and find freedom in every stroke with Van Dieman's Decade in the Desert Liberty Blue ink, inspired by the vivid blue in the Arizona state flag.

Painted Desert (sheening ink): Drawing visitors from around the world, Arizona's Painted Desert National Park is where nature decided to let its artistic flair loose - where time painted the landscape in layers of red, orange, pink, and even purple. It's a masterpiece nature's been working on for millions of years. Van Dieman's Decade in the Desert Painted Desert ink, a tribute to the natural wonder, is not for the faint-hearted. The ink's bold, high-saturation purple is deep and mysterious, like a desert twilight. Once the ink dries, a bright green sheen emerges like a shimmering mirage in the desert sun. Every word you write is an adventure, just like every step you take in Arizona's Painted Desert.

Ocotillo (sheening ink): The deep, dark green color of Ocotillo ink is a shout-out to the slender, spiny stems of the unique plant often seen reaching towards the Arizona sky. A beacon of color and life amidst the desert trails, the Ocotillo is a unique plant that stands tall amid a hostile environment adorned with vibrant red flowers that burn brightly against the deep green of the Ocotillo. Fill your pen with the Ocotillo's resilience and vitality with Van Dieman's Decade in the Desert Ocotillo ink, a deep, lush green mirroring its namesake's verdant leaves.

Prickly Pear Ink: Inspired by the most brazen of desert dwellers, Prickly Pear ink is a warm, reddish pink ink capturing the warmth of the Arizona sun and the unique hue of the Prickly Pear's fruit. The Prickly Pear cactus thrives under the harshest conditions and shares its vibrant pink fruits in its very own act of gorgeous defiance against a barren desert landscape. In a celebration of beautiful defiance, Prickly Pear Ink boldly dares to create beauty wherever it goes - just like its namesake. Once Prickly Pear ink's vibrant color dries, a green sheen appears - a slow nod to the Prickly Pear's resilient cactus pads and an unexpected twist that provides a surprise to your writing and a burst of unexpected color that brings life to every word you write.

The Van Dieman's Exclusive Decade in the Desert fountain pen inks are made and bottled by hand in the Tasmanian region of Australia.

OK so I lived in Arizona for 14 years and am always pining for the desert. So of course when these inks came out I picked up a couple, Route 66 and Ocotillo. Ocotillo happens to be my favorite cactus so that was a given; fortunately the ink also has a nice sheen and consistent flow. Route 66 is really unusual, with a whole host of interesting characteristics that do make one think of 'glitter on the highway.' These are high quality inks and especially fun if you are a desert rat like me (or just wish you were).
