Ink Review: Diamine Pink

Diamine Pink ink is an unsaturated salmon pink dye based ink. It’s from Diamine Inks standard range.

It’s a fairly bright pink, probably brighter than it looks on my review form, but I found it very difficult to capture the exact bright shade of this ink from my scan.

I found it quite a well -behaved ink ink to write with. It exhibited some nice shading and felt nicely wet and lubricated with all three pens/nibs I used.

  • Flow Rate: Very good. Felt quite wet
  • Lubrication: Very good. Smooth across the page.
  • Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.
  • Start-up: Immediate.
  • Saturation: Not a saturated ink.
  • Shading Potential: Nice shading seen.
  • Sheen: None seen.
  • Show-Through: Not particularly noticeable on any of the papers I used. I could have written on the back of all of them
  • Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: Not seen.
  • Nib Creep / “Crud”: Not seen, even after over 1 week in the pen.
  • Staining (pen): Not seen after several days in the pen – easy clean-up with water.
  • Staining (hands): Easy to wash off hands.
  • Clogging: Not seen. Seems unlikely.
  • Water resistance: Not sold as waterproof but has a little water resistance.
  • Availability: Available in 30ml and 80ml bottles from Diamine Inks web-site and many other outlets.
