No, that’s not the name of this ink. That’s my description when I swatched my card. I’ll get to that in a moment.
Inkvent Day #4: Diamine Tempest
I had a hard time locating door #4. As you can see the number is partially on the door and not in the center like the previous numbers.
Tempest is a dark blue shimmering ink.
My bottle is chock-full of shimmering particulates.
Here’s my writing sample and swatch. I made a mistake and wrote in the title below the wrong ink type. This is not a standard ink. It’s a shimmering ink as you can see. I was caught up in the moment with this ink color and not paying attention to what I was writing.
Looking straight down on my page I can see loads of shimmer.
At this angle…just WOW!
Let’s look at this from another angle.
My pen & ink sketch for today.
This is another gorgeous color. The best way I can describe this ink: dark blue with gold shimmers and a bit of pinky sheen. I can definitely see the pink sheen on my swatch card. This ink is definitely on my wish list. 🤩
