A lovely, subtle blue

I am a big fan of blue inks, from highly saturated, to blue-blacks, even to teals. This was a wonderful addition to me collection of blues, in that I find it distinctly different in one key aspect - it is not so bright as many of the others. I love that it is somewhat subdued. With perhaps a hint of grey, it dries to what some might call 'chalky' or 'dusty'. I would have named this Prussian Blue (although Diamine has taken that name, I didn't like Diamine Prussian Blue). This is well-behaved, so much so that I can use it on cheaper copy paper. I bought a sample, but will get a bottle and this will definitely become part of my regular rotation. Highly recommend it for blue lovers.

Atlantic blue

Love this ink. It behaves very well in all my pens.

Gorgeous, slightly indescribable ink

Blue's mah thang, and I love trying ink samples of various shades of blue. While Diamine Blue Velvet is still 'my' ink, I just ordered a bottle of De Atramentis Atlantic Blue. This ink flows wet in my Pacific Lamy EF. It lays down a dark sheen of ink that dries quickly, turned to the color of, yes, the Atlantic on a misty day. Under bright lighting I noticed beautiful shading�with an EF!! It's well saturated, well behaved, and I can easily recommend it to overhand lefties like me.

Exactly what I wanted

This gives me a very nautical feel. I love the colour.

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
