Diamine Yellow Ochre, Sepia and Chocolate Brown – All three of these inks behave in a similar way. They bleed easily when added to water with a mottled sediment at the breakdown of the wash suggesting more colour pigmentation in solution. All three inks turn a gorgeous gold colour when subjected to bleach. Ideal for painting as they appear to behave like watercolour paints except watercolour paints don’t react to like this with bleach (Dr Martin watercolour inks bleach white). As writing inks they flow well, dry fast and look good. For writing and illustrating journals these have got to be ideal. Why not take all three?
