Stealth black-purple

Functions like a black ink in my EF pens which works great as an everyday pen for notes, journaling. Black fountain pens tend to be a bit grey-ish/charcoal, and instead of just grey peaking through on the usual black inks, this one has a nice nice violet (more blue undertone than red) peaking through. The gold sheen on FP-friendly paper is not distracting, just an added bit of fun to an 'undercover' black ink that I will continue to love. Flows wet and can smear because it takes longer to dry on coated paper (I've had this problem on TR and Clairefontaine). On regular copy paper it has a bit of feathering, more noticeable because of its dark colour. I loved this sample and am tempted to get a whole bottle, but I'm still got too many samples to go through first!

Pure Magic!...Or Eggplant/Black

I tried this on a fountain pen-friendly paper and 2 different cheap college-ruled made in the USA papers. On FP-friendly paper, it's gold sheening purple and black magic. On my cheap $1 notebook paper, the sheen is completely devoured, but it's a nice eggplant color with larger nibs and pretty much black in fine or extra fine. On a different loose leaf cheap paper (like $1 for 150 sheets cheap), it writes eggplant/black but actually sheens gold every once in a while! This is definitely worth a sample to see how it does on your usual paper and would make an excellent stealth magical ink.

Maybe it was operator error

The ink looks beautiful, but somehow I managed to squeeze the bottle (or something) while I was closing it back up and got ink everywhere! I've used Diamine inks before without this mess happening.

Pleasantly surprised

This ink has quickly become my new favorite! I've currently got my Pineider avatar UR Riace Bronze inked up with Diamine Scribble purple and I think it's just the most beautiful combination. Because this purple ink is so dark, I can use it in most of my daily writing. It's easy on the eyes when reading pages I've written, unlike some of my more vibrant purple inks.

Diamine Scribble Purple

I love the color - similar to Diamine Shimmer Purple Pazzazz- and very smooth ink. I love Diamine inks all the way around! And Goulet Pen Co.

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
