Mandala drawn with Diamine Old English fountain pen ink.
Diamine Orange tested in an off-white lined Paperblanks journal with a medium nibbed Lamy Safari fountain pen.
This ink appears to be the ULTIMATE orange ink. As in Sunkist Orange. Syracuse Orangemen Orange, Rhodia Orange, Halloween Orange.
Orange Orange Orange
Super flow in this medium nib. Ink is very saturated and shading is difficult to see. Diamine Pumpkin is a darker orange - more like what I would refer to as a "blood orange."
Diamine Orange is a very vibrant ink - but not something I would normally use, (I actually prefer the Pumpkin) but for fans of good old orange, this one is for you!
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.
