Diamine New Century Aqua Blue Fountain Pen ink tested in a Paperblanks journal with off-white paper - and in a Fine Lamy Safari fountain pen.
Saturated, great flow, some shading.
Reminds me of Herbin's Bleu Pervenche but this Aqua is darker shade. This color is almost too vibrant - reminds me of one of my Stabilo marker colors and I' don't know if I can take it seriously enough to write with it on a regular basis.
But this color definitely might be fun to draw with...
Buy Diamine Inks in the UK at The Writing Desk or directly from Diamine and in the US from The Pear Tree Pen Company Ink is sold in 80ml glass bottles, 30 ml plastic bottles, and selected colors are available in cartridge form.
