INK REVIEW: Diamine Blue Velvet



Blue Velvet is part of the Anniversary Collection from Diamine to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the brand.  150 years!  The collection is comprised of eight different inks in these fancy wedge-shaped bottles.

I’m just going to put it right out there – I LOVE Diamine Blue Velvet. Big love.

Letting the pictures do the talking here . . .

Bottom Line – amazing color, some shading, great saturation, flow is excellent from the Pilot Elite I tested with (more on that pen another day). Big love. Big honkin’ love.

As time goes on, I’m becoming more a fan of blue inks. I used to think they were boring, but now I am seeing the differences in all of the fantastic blue inks out there. Horizons are broadening!

Are you a fan of blue inks? Which is your most favorite?
