Diamine Exclusive – Bloody Brexit

And yet another Diamine sheen exclusive with a topical name… Bloody Brexit. Whatever your political opinions may be, this is another heavy sheener for Seitz Kreuznach and their expanding collection of ‘Bloody’ inks!

A deep rich blue serious sheening ink, that bleeds out  bright turquoise with tiny hints of Royal blue when blended with water.

When dry, the concentrated areas dry a heavy metal red. Check out that blot and the squiggles! Depending on your paper surface the ink writes a deep blue with hints of red sheen in evidence. I thought the abstract calligraphy title worked quite well – with messy, angry and frustrated lettering?

Tests conducted on Bockingford 200lb rough, Rhodia dot matrix and Tamoe River papers using a Noodler’s Creeper pen. Now available from Seitz Kreuznach.

HEY! If you’re interested to know more about how to use fountain pen inks in more creative ways – whether it’s simply to observe their chromatic behaviours, or, to recreate one of my swatch cards, or, to learn how to use them in watercolour painting, illustration and calligraphy, why not check out my online course or, even better, sign up for a workshop?
