Very pretty bright blue

Brighter than I expected but very very pretty, works well in my pilot kakuno, I see myself getting a full bottle of this.

Beautiful color

Found this ink from one of Brian's many YouTube videos and I had to give it a try. When I first swabbed it, I wasn't terribly impressed. I believe that's due to the rather absorbent paper I have been using for swabs. Once I inked this up in my TWSBI 1.1 mm stub and wrote on my Rhodia tablet, I fell in love. Much more shading than I got from the swab and a more green hue

Gorgeous Shading

I bought this sample with my first purchase of fountain pens and inks... what a lovely introduction! This ink is a beautiful colour - a blue with a touch of green that isn't overbearing to look at when used for long writing samples. The shading is stunning. Absolutely going to buy a bottle once I get through all the samples I have!

Beautiful Turquoise Ink

I absolutely LOVE the color of this ink, it's GoRGeOUS!!! It's the perfect turquoise color that I was looking for to ink up my new Turquoise TWSBI!!

A Great, Vibrant Green Turquoise

A very vibrant and saturated color which seems to jump off the page! I have been searching for a light blue ink to represent water in architectural sketches. Diamine Marine is more of a greenish teal, whereas Noodler's Navajo Turquoise and Lamy Turquoise lean more towards blue. Try it out--you won't regret it!

FAQ about Ink Samples

How do I fill my fountain pen from an ink sample vial? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the fountain pen's filling mechanism.

Check out our blog post on How to Fill a Fountain Pen from an Ink Sample Vial.

How much writing can I do with 2ml of ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It really depends on how big or small you write, and the nib size you’re using. We find that usually you can get 2 good fills for a typical converter with our Ink samples, or one good fill with a piston-filling pen. How much writing depends on you more than anything else, so we recommend experimenting with different nib sizes to find what works best for you. 

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.
