Diamine Poppy Red

Using in a Pilot Kakuno EF, Nice deep red, flows well with the EF nib. Could be the red I use as a standard.

Diamine Poppy Red

I don't know enough about the neurology of the brain that makes Diamine Poppy Red so stunning to me. I have a Krone pen with 18K Fine nib. The body is a deep orange/red, so it seemed natural to ink it with the Poppy Red. I think I will be making the pairing permanent.

Red for the holidays

Great color. It is pretty and will work well for holiday cards and for Valentines. If you want a bright, happy red, this is it.

Diamine poppy red

I had purchased a few ink samples and poppy red was one of them! Because red it a great go to color. It is a smooth ink and the dry time is short even with my broadest nib. Not a whole lot of shadding but a great bright red.

Solid rich color

I've always been skeptical of colored inks, but i really like this red. It's very solid- great density, rich color and nice wetness

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.
