Inkvent Day #25: Diamine All the Best
This is Diamine’s 30ml bottle of inky wonderment. I feel as though I won a grand prize for getting through the last 25 days of inky madness. Oh my!
I was twirling this bottle around to see what inky characteristics to expect from the label. Nothing. Just the name of the color.
I can see some shimmering particulates. Looks like the same amount as in the tiny 12ml bottles.
I shake the bottle to disperse the shimmers. I know I may not get as much since this bottle holds more ink. I gave my bottle a good shake. Where did my shimmers go?
Okay. Let’s start by doing some breathing exercises.
Repeat two more times before scrolling further.
Here is All the Best! Oh my! Look at all of this inky craziness on my swatch card!
Here’s a close up. Remember to breath in and breathe out.
There’s a good amount of sheen in my writing sample.
Let’s look at my swatch card from another angle.
I can see the amazing sheen in my ink wash. There’s a tiny bit of shimmer there as well.
Al the Best is a dark magenta ink color. Initially, the magenta color seems to disappear off the page as the bright olive green sheen overtakes the ink’s color. The longer I write with this ink, the more the magenta color becomes more prevalent on my paper with less sheen showing. Oh and let’s not forget the purplish-blue shimmering particles that decides to show up every now and then. How’s that for a description of this unusual ink color?
This is the last ink color in my calendar and it’s also at the very top of my wish list for a larger bottle.
