Review: Diamine Blaze Orange Fountain Pen Ink

Diamine Blaze Orange Ink

Diamine Blaze Orange fountain pen ink tested in an extra-fine nibbed Lamy Accent fountain pen. Paperbanks off-white ruled journal.

Good flow, not very saturated. Shading is evident. This ink was difficult to see on the off-white paper and I don't really have much use for inks that light in color. (Except for creating art.)

Diamine Orange & Pumpkin are much more vibrant shades of orange.

Diamine inks provided by Diamine for the purpose of review.

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.

Great with the comparison between the shades. Is this unsaturated and light enough to be used as a highlighting ink? I usually use Sunshine Yellow as highlighting ink, but this looks like it could be a nice ink to use and alternate with.

Comparing swabs to the Sunshine orange, yes - I believe the saturation level to be about the same. Curious how you use a FP ink as a highlighting ink.... Are you going over other ink? I try that and it all smears.... Tried underlining in a paperback book with Herbin's Bouton D'Or and it bled....
