Handwritten Review – Diamine Sepia
Today, I’m giving away a full-sized bottle of Diamine Sepia Fountain Pen Ink. I know, I know you were hoping it was the pen. Sorry. #sorrynotsorry
When I learned that Goulet Pens was sending me the Fall 2014 Edition of Edison Nouveau Premiere and a bottle of ink, I suggested that they could also send me a sample of the same ink. “I’ll use the sample and giveaway the bottle.”
I had no idea which ink they were sending, but when I saw that it was sepia, I was so glad I was only getting the sample-sized. Brown inks are a waste on me. Ick.
And now this:
Diamine Sepia Ink Swap
Let’s dive in . . .
A beautiful golden brown – with perhaps a bit of red?
No green or gray to muddy things up.
Shading makes me happy.
cRaZy shading makes me crazy happy.
I love this ink. The color is great, saturation is good, there is definitely shading. No bleeding, minimal show through (ghosting).
Water resistance isn’t super-important to me. Good thing, too . . . .
You’ll also note on the full review (click here for full-size version
) that the color seems to be less saturated as I get further down on the page. Totally user error. I was having trouble filling from the sample bottle and ended up with ink clinging to the converter. A small twist of the converter got me going again.
Bottom line? I’ve added this ink to my wish list so that I can keep my word and give you this full-sized unopened bottle.
