Introducing Fluster Cluck and Falling Upwards – two Diamine exclusives produced for online UK stationers Art from the Heart which are to be released on 21st November 2022.
I love pairs of inks that can be used individually or blended together to fabulous visual effect and here we have a very pretty couple. When I first saw them I thought immediately of Cult Pens Robert and Maureen which are two of my favourite pairings along with Kong Guys and Kong Girls.
Like Robert, Falling Upwards is a very deep attractive Crimson with a stunning metallic green sheen. Fluster Cluck is a deeper blue than Maureen and nearer that of Kong Guys with a metallic copper sheen with the addition of a lovely silver shimmer.
Whether diluting with water or using as is, when blended together, the visual effects are just glorious! For further details and to get hold of some, check out the Art from the Heart website. Click here.
Tests conducted on Bockingford 200lb rough, Seawhite Cartridge Paper and Tamoe River papers using a Noodler’s Creeper pen and an automatic pen.
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?
