Diamine Aqua Lagoon on Rhodia

Ink

Diamine Aqua Lagoon is a medium turquoise that leans a little towards teal. It has an average flow. I like this colour, turquoise but not quite your typical turquoise, to keep it interesting to look at.

On Rhodia paper, there is shading, no sheen, no feathering and no bleedthrough.

Diamine Writer’s Blood on Midori MD

Ink

The ink is a dark maroon colour with a wet flow. This ink was created for r/fountainpens on Reddit. When the ink launched, it created quite a buzz and didn’t take long to sell out on store shelves. Perhaps because fountain pen users are all writers in some form, the name resonated with many people.

As with any trending product, there were some who loved it and some who thought it wasn’t worth the hype. I thought this was a lovely ink, but it wasn’t in the “omg must buy” category for me. When I did the writing samples, the colour reminded me more of prune juice.

On Midori MD paper, there is little shading, very little sheen, no feathering and no bleedthrough.

Diamine Ancient Copper on Leuchtturm1917

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 Leuchtturm1917 paper, there is shading, no sheen, no feathering and some bleedthrough.

Diamine Monboddo’s Hat on Rhodia

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 Rhodia paper, there is shading, no sheen, no feathering and a little 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.
