Diamine Eau de Nil Ink Review

Hey everyone! I’m back with another ink review! This time it is a beautiful color from Diamine called Eau de Nil. Currently, this dark turquoise is my favorite go to ink and I’ve been using it daily since I received it in a “Surprise Me!” sample from Goulet Pens.

Dry Time: 10-15 seconds

Saturation: Very saturated.

Water Resistance: A little resistant.

Shading: Some shading.

Flow: Wet.

Ghosting: Little.

Bleedthrough: None.

Conclusion!

I love this ink. It is a dark turquoise, with almost an undertone of grey to it. I don’t think I’d consider it someones everyday writer, or work appropriate, but it is my favorite ink for journalling and for note taking. I have it currently inked in my Newton Custom Pen, and as of writing this review it is far and above all of the other inks I’ve tried as my favorite.

Diamine Autumn Oak Ink Review

I’m back with another pen review! This time it’s an ink that is bringing in the fall season: Diamine Autumn Oak. I picked up this ink to match my Orange Desert Pilot Vanishing Point, and I think it is a good alternative to some of the other heavy shading red-oranges that are out there.

WP_20150904_014

Dry Time: Between 5-10 seconds – pretty fast dry time.

Saturation: Not too saturated. You can see that it does from almost a yellow-orange to a red-orange.

Water Resistance: Very little resistance.

Shading: A LOT of shading! It goes from a yellow-orange to a red-orange and is very beautiful.

Flow: Wet-medium.

Ghosting: Some.

Bleedthrough: None.

CONCLUSION!

Overall, I very much enjoy this ink. I don’t think it will be a daily writer for me or anything, but I am excited to try it out in my Noodler’s Ahab to maximize the shading, and for taking notes in class to highlight different equations or information that I really need.

The ink is a good alternative to Noodler’s Apache Sunset or Noodler’s Habanero. If you like orange-red inks that have a lot of shading, then this is one for you to check out!
