Great in

Classic Bright Red

It's a nice bright red. It goes down a little bit orangey but looks like a classic red once it's dry. Although it is not very water resistant, I use it to grade and mark up papers. It behaves pretty well on the random cheap papers my students use, but it looks especially nice on Tomoe River paper. However, it, like other Diamine inks I've tried, looks bad in my Moleskine journal.

Beautifully vibrant

I was looking for a red to go with my blue and black daily carries. I'm pretty particular about my pen colors so I was cautious about just purchasing a bottle as opposed to a sample first, but I have no regrets at all. The color is a deep and brilliantly bright red. The only thing I would draw attention to is that it is a bit wet and takes a little bit longer than I would prefer to dry, but that doesn't lower my opinion of it at all. If you want a red that has life to it, this is your red.

Wonderful bright ink

When you write it has an orange tinge, but on drying turns to a deep red. It does not feather much in cheap paper and it is well behaved with different pens. I recommended over the Diamine Poppy Red.

Diamine Wild Strawberry Ink

Wonderful color. Bright red, just what I was looking to purchase. I hope the 50 mL bottle is back in stock soon. I use this color with my red Lamy Safari with a fine nib.

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.

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!
