Diamine Shimmertastic – 3 Ink Review – Blue Lighting, Shimmering Seas, Blue Pearl

Hello again friends! More visual reviews of 3 Diamine’s Shimmertastic Inks!

Diamine will be releasing 10(!) new inks soon (possible already released to some)! I’m a shimmery ink fan, so I’m excited for these. I understand these inks will not be for everyone, and that is totally okay! If you like some shimmer in your writing, please enjoy!

Quick note: Particles in inks mean more maintenance if you use these in fountain pens! (Goulet Pens has a video on inks that require more maintenence on YouTube: https://youtu.be/nO3pREn4wro)

Personally, I prefer to use flexible dip pens with shimmery type inks.
On to these delicious blue inks!

Thanks for looking/reading!

Notes:

  • Images scanned in with minimal level adjustment and photos taken with Samsung NX mini (with and without flash).
  • I had to shake up the samples pretty regularly to keep the shimmer writing.
  • As with any ink scans and/or photos I try to be consistent in color. What you see on your monitor might not be the actual color, but it should be a fairly close representation.
  • I received these ink samples from The Goulet Pen Company for the purposes of review. All opinions in this review are mine, and are not bias based on how I received these samples.
Thank you so much for your support and for viewing this post!

    Love the colors. Hate how they clog up my pens. They’re wore than the J Herbin shimmer inks.

  • Haven’t had any clogging issues in my TWSBIs yet, but I rotate inks quite a bit.
    Have you tried them with a dip pen?

    I was a magpie in a former life – anything shiny attracts me! I do love painting with Blue Lightening and Brandy Dazzle. The effects I can get with water makes my eyes happy.

    @Aquaria: I do agree with you about pen clogging. Yech. Brushes or dip pens like these inks so much better, yes?

    A magpie? I was a witch in my last. People find me to be rude and secluded. In another, I was a crow.
