Mild sheen

I would say the competition is with Organic Studios Nitrogen. While this ink behaves well, on various papers it shows darker and with subtle sheen in comparison to Nitrogen. I would pick Nitrogen any day if you don't mind a little more smear potential (I don't). Still, as this seems a little more stable it might be a better daily use ink.

Sheening dark blue ink

This is one of several Diamine dark blues. Majestic Blue writes much darker than the swatch, almost a dark cobalt blue, with a crazy red sheen that give lots of depth. Because of the dye concentration required for sheening, flow can be poor in drier pen/nib combinations. This ink performs poorly in my Pilot VP F or E95S EF, but is lovely in a wetter or broader nib, like a Sailor 1911S or 1911L Realo medium nib. For a sheening ink, dry time is good, and it doesn't seem to smudge easily after drying. The sheen is really intense, even on decent quality copy paper, making the ink appear almost glossy red instead of blue. If you want a dark blue with good flow, but still with subtle sheen, Regency Blue or Oxford Blue are better options. Regency blue is a bit redder and Oxford Blue a bit bluer than Majestic Blue.

Diamine Majestic Blue Ink

Ink flows particularly well in My Aurora International, good color pop and quality of line and doesn't bleed through paper as bad other inks I've used; doesn't require as much pen cleanings as compared to Aurora Ink

FAQs about Bottled Ink

Which pens can accept this ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Any of these fountain pens will work with bottled ink. Typically, as long as the pen can be filled with a converter, has a built-in filling mechanism like a piston, or can be eyedropper-filled, it can accept bottled ink.

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

You can learn more in our blog: How to Write with Shimmering Ink.

My ink smells funny, is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Generally yes! Ink does not smell good- it usually has a chemical smell, along with other scents such as sulfur, rubber, chemicals or even paint. However, as long as you’re not seeing anything floating in the ink, it should be safe to use.

It’s cold and my ink froze; is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes, frozen ink will not hurt your pen (after it’s thawed of course!) The issue with ink freezing is primarily a concern because certain glass bottles could break as the water-based ink expands, and then you’d have a mess!

What is your return policy for bottled ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B
