INK SWAB: 91/365 – Akkerman #5 Shocking Blue Posted on April 1, 2015 by Christine (Pentulant) PW Akkerman Shocking Blue #5 is a terrific ink. I reviewed it in great detail along with some other blue inks here and here. Akkerman inks can be a bit of pain to find. I would suggest Diamine Majestic Blue as a suitable alternative.
I ordered a bottle of Shocking Blue from Akkerman (along with some others) and it’s on the way! I can’t wait to try it.
Many people believe Akkerman ink is Diamine rebottled, so I am not surprised that Majestic Blue is a close alternative. But with those pretty bottles, I don’t care if they are really just Diamine. 🙂
