Inkvent Day #7: Diamine Candle Light
After opening the previous days’ inks, it was nice to see a lovely bright ink color appear on my radar. It’s a beautiful yellow ink that is also readable on paper.
Door #7 was a bit tricky to find as I was looking for a normal number 7. Diamine was clever with the candy cane.
Candle light is a lovely standard ink color.
There is not too much going on with this ink color other than quite a bit of shading.
I’m very happy to see this ink has quite a bit of shading. For a yellow color it is readable on paper.
There’s a tiny-tiny bit of sheen. I can barely see it.
This ink creates a lovely ink wash.
I was flipping through my three (3) sets of Col-o-ring cards and the only yellows I have are from Robert Oster Signature Inks. The orange-y side of this color reminds me of RO Antelope Canyon. The bright yellow reminds me of RO Exclusive ink called Fire. No pictures (for now) of my swatches as I had a hard time photographing them and getting the correct colors to show.
Just for fun, I took my swatch and matched it against my Daniel Smith watercolors. It was quite close to Quinacridone Gold.
This beautiful Candle light ink color looks to be on the orange side and the underlying color is definitely yellow. How about a golden yellow?
