Review: Diamine Burnt Sienna Fountain Pen Ink

Diamine Burnt Sienna

Diamine Burnt Sienna fountain pen ink. Tested in an extra fine nibbed Lamy Studio fountain pen. Paperblanks off-white ruled journal.

I put this next to the Monaco Red - this is more of an orangey brown to the Monaco's reddish brown.

A medium brown, not as interesting as I first thought. Too light for me. Great flow, nice shading.

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.

I don't know if you've tried it, but I recommend the Diamine Macassar Brown. It's the darkest of the Diamine browns (much darker than their "Dark Brown"). Important to me, in my tests Macassar is the most lightfast of the Diamine browns, including the Chocolate Brown, Dark Brown, and Saddle Brown. It's a deep mahogany, almost black when dense. It's great for writing but I also use it as a drawing ink. It's not waterproof, so you can move the color around on sized paper.

Thanks for this review.
