Day #8: Is it a Fruit or Flower Color?

Inkvent Day #8: Diamine Raspberry Rose

Here’s another standard ink from Diamine called Raspberry Rose.

I would say this is a perfect raspberry ink color. There is some shading and a bit of sheen. The ring trim on my Conklin pen matched the ink nicely.

Here’s a close up of my swatch card that shows a greenish sheen. This is a gorgeous ink color.

I tend to gravitate towards this red-purple range of colors and have plenty of swatches to compare. This range of colors is perfect for writing and for sketching.

Raspberry Rose is another fabulous ink that creates a beautiful ink wash.

Remember the poinsettia sketch I did a few days ago? I used this ink color for the main petals.

This might be replacing my fave Diamine Amaranth ink. Raspberry Rose is a tiny bit lighter than Amaranth, but they both have a similar green sheen. I would definitely purchase this ink after I finish off my bottle of Amaranth.
