A red's red

Eye popping red. DO NOT USE WHEN MARKING PAPERS. That's just cruel.

Diamine poppy red 30 ml

Just put this in my pineider avatar TTT and it's writing smoothly. Nice bright, clear red which is what I was looking for. Won't order a small bottle again though - filling a vac pen from a full tall narrow bottle with a very small opening could have gone wrong in oh so many ways. Guess I'll put the rest in the pen filler!

Very nice red

I was looking for a red ink to use in my fountain pen. I've been using a Pilot G2 gel pen for when I want a red ink and wanted to use a fountain pen instead. The Diamine Poppy Red fit the need. It flows well in my Metropolitan and looks wonderful.

Poppy red by Diamine

This red is a chameleon. Fresh on paper it is quite red, and aged after days it mellows into a near Rouge. Hit it with water and the line returns to red and the paper becomes a faint red without loosing legibility. Flow is consistent, drying on paper is quick enough even for an over the top writing left handed. Capped for days and the line start immediately. Who doesn't like red and this is a great one.

Favorite red

A very nice and pretty red. It's quite bright and leans more towards the orange side, but still amazing.

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
