Diamine Ancient Copper on Muji Planting Tree

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.

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?

On Muji Planting Tree paper, there is shading, no sheen, a tiny bit of feathering and no bleedthrough.

Diamine Fools paper Tsubame

Diamine Monboddo’s Hat on Tsubame

Ink

In 2019, the Fountain Pens UK Facebook group collaborated with Diamine to create two inks, Scribble Purple and Monboddo’s Hat. The inks are named after Scribble Monboddo, a purple ink lover who runs the Too Many Purples blog. Monboddo’s Hat is a ink colour inspired by Scribble Monboddo’s purple top hat.

The ink is a saturated dark purple with red undertones with a wet flow. At no surprise to anyone, it has the most sheen on Tomoe River paper. The official description calls it a gold sheen but it looks a little greenish to me. On Fools paper, there is a little sheen, a tiny bit of feathering and no bleedthrough.

Colour residue left in pen barrel after cleaning

The ink left a ring of colour residue behind so cleaning is more involved than usual.
