I know by now I sound as though I like all the inks from this calendar. I really do! Today’s ink is no exception. When some shimmers are added that’s always a joyful bonus.
Inkvent Day #16: Diamine Vintage Copper
Vintage Copper is a shimmering ink.
Of course I have to turn the bottle over to see what was going on inside. Wow!
It’s quite mesmerizing to watch the swirls of colors.
This is a gorgeous ink color and Vintage Copper is an appropriate name for it. At first, the shimmers appear to be subtle on paper.
My swatch card shows gold shimmers and black sheen. The golden shimmers is a good match to the gold sparkles in my Estie pen.
Another view with just my beautiful swatch card.
Here’s a close up from my writing sample showing also the shading.
There’s plenty of shimmers in my bottle and in my pen. It’s evident as it shows up in my ink wash nicely.
Vintage Copper is an absolutely gorgeous ink with plenty of gold shimmers, shading, and some black sheen. The ink itself is a lovely bright coppery color. Compared to Diamine’s Brandy Dazzle, Vintage Copper is bolder and brighter. This is now high on my list of favorites and on my wish list to get a larger bottle.
