Diamine Ancient Copper on Kokuyo Campus

Ink

Diamine Ancient Copper is a burnt orange ink with a wet flow, some shading and no sheen. In places where the ink had pooled, it looked brown. On Kokuyo Campus paper, there is no feathering or bleedthrough.

I enjoy the wet flow and the colour of the ink. The orange-brown range of this ink makes me think of rust, but ancient copper sounds better than rusty metal, doesn’t it?

Monteverde Sapphire on Kokuyo Campus

Ink

Monteverde Sapphire is a vibrant blue. It shades beautifully and has a wet flow. I didn’t see any feathering on Kokuyo Campus paper. There is a tiny bit of bleedthrough at the ends of strokes where the ink had pooled.

Van Dieman’s Apricot on Kokuyo Campus

Ink

Apricot is from Van Dieman’s Harvest series which celebrates the colourful produce grown in Tasmania.

The ink is a pale orange that makes me think about pastoral sunsets and babies. I find this ink just about readable and obviously is more readable on white paper than cream-coloured paper. It shades well. However the high contrast between the light and dark areas can be distracting and hinders readability.

Kokuyo Vinta

Vinta Terracotta on Kokuyo Campus

Ink

Vinta Terracotta (Damili 1572) is orange ink inspired by clay craftsmanship. It is brighter when wet, then dries to a earthy orange. It really looks like red clay, and also reminds me of autumn leaves.

I didn’t expect to love this ink so much. The more I used it, the more I love it. It shades beautifully and is easy to clean out.

Paper

I like writing on this paper. It is smooth and holds up well to fountain pen ink.

Van Dieman’s Hailstorm on Kokuyo Campus

Ink

Hailstorm is part of Van Dieman’s Tassie Seasons series, inspired by the colours of each Tasmania’s seasons. This is one of the colours of summer.

This is a green-grey ink. To my eyes, it is more green than grey. This is supposedly the colour of a thunderstorm cloud. I said “supposedly” because hailstorms are rare in Singapore so I don’t know what a hailstorm cloud looks like. I don’t really like this colour but that’s just a personal preference. There is nothing wrong with the ink. It flows well and is easy to clean.
