Inkvent Day #9: Diamine Storm
Here is a blue ink color called Storm. It’s appropriately named and has lots of shimmers.
From the bottom of the bottle, the shimmering particulates appear to be green.
I took this picture a minute after I created my swatch of color using my Automatic pen. I added a bit of water while the ink was still wet and watched the ink and shimmers dispersed in several directions.
My writing sample shows plenty of shimmers and shading with this ink. Do you see the mistake I made in my writing sample?
I was so thrilled with this ink’s shimmer that I wrote the wrong number for the day. It should be “Day 9” and not Day 5. Ooooops!
My swatch shows predominantly green shimmers. There might be another shimmering color in this ink as well. Are you seeing any other shimmering colors in their swatches?
From another angle my swatch card shows lots of inky goodness.
Here’s a comparison between Day #4 and Day #9 ink colors. Very uniques colors.
Storm produces a lovely ink wash.
Just when I thought I had all the blue ink I could possibly need, this one shows up in the calendar. It’s a beautiful dark blue color and I enjoy seeing the green shimmers and some shading. This ink also has some pinky undertones. Yes, it’s on my wish list for a regular size bottle. 🤩
