Diamine Old English Cerise ink tested in a Paperblanks lined journal with off white pages. EF Lamy Safari fountain Pen.
A bright, bright, bright fluorescent pink.
Good flow, saturated, shading is noticeable.
Reminds me of fluorescent pink crayons, kids markers, bubble gum and Spring flowers. A fun & happy color. Not sure if I would use it on a regular basis, but fun. Works well for notations and underlining.
I'm surprised at how saturated this color is. I just wouldn't expect a pink ink to be so saturated but yet here it is....
Note - this was one of the first Diamine inks I tested so this review is coming along after I've tested some of their other pink inks like Pink & Flamingo Pink. To me, this is the truest pink that doesn't have an underlying orange. But of course, YMMV.
PS - It's a keeper for sure.
