Diamine German Exclusive – Penoblue

A new Diamine sheen exclusive for the German stationer chain, Penoblo.

Named Penoblue, this teal blue sheening ink bleeds out a very bright turquoise when blended with water. Nice shading qualities in both the handwriting and abstract calligraphy examples. A good reaction to bleach too.

This isn’t a monster sheen, so when dry, only the concentrated areas dry a metallic pinky red. Check out that blot! Depending on your paper surface the ink writes a deep teal blue with hints of red sheen in evidence. I thought the abstract calligraphy title worked quite well? It’s a pretty ink.

Tests conducted on Bockingford 200lb rough, Rhodia dot matrix, Seawhite Cartridge and Tamoe River papers using a Noodler’s Creaper pen and an automatic pen. Available soon and exclusively from Penoblo.

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?
