Ink Review 

Supplies Used:

Smear Test (Dry Time):

  • 30+ seconds – This is a very wet ink and we found it smeared even after 30 seconds.

Drip Test (Water Resistance):

  • Low – Winter Miracle doesn't have much in the way of water resistance like most inks with shimmer or sheen.


  • High – You'll get a rich and saturated purple/black color from the first swab. Further swabs don't add much to the saturation but you will see more sheen and shimmer, so this one is loaded from the start.

Ease of Cleaning:

  • Low – Shimmer particles and highly saturated ink mean this one will be a bit harder to clean out of your feed. Make sure to not let it dry in the pen, as it will clog your feed unit. To combat this, you can use the Goulet Pens Feed Brush to clean out the shimmer after disassembly.


  • Low – There's no actual shading here, but the shimmer deposits in the same fashion as shading inks, so you do get a lovely gradient and extra shine where the ink pools.


  • High – The flow on Winter Miracle is quite generous, which lends into a higher sheen and concentration of shimmer.

 Packaging and Aesthetics:

  • The Diamine Blue edition inks have one of the best bottle designs we carry! With a not quite square shape and stout legs, this bottle has a very whimsical appearance great for display.

Overall, Winter Miracle is a gorgeous ink that errs deep purple with green-gold sheen and a silky blue shimmer. It is perfect for anyone looking to elevate their writing with an almost professional color that pops with personality.
