Diamine Inkvent Calendar is an advent calendar with a tiny (7ml) bottle of ink behind 24 windows, and a larger, 30ml, bottle of ink behind the 25th window. All the inks are limited edition, and only available through this calendar. You can read more about the calendar here.
I like the nib ornament above today’s door. I wasn’t expecting Diamine to go all out on day 13, but I actually think that today’s ink was pretty interesting.
Day 13’s ink is Diamine Mulled Wine, a standard ink that’s a burgundy red with brown elements that remind me a little of Diamine Oxblood.
You really get the wine quality with this ink, but also cinnamon and cloves, which what makes Mulled Wine such a great name for this ink. It’s a perfect winter colour, and it shades beautifully. I’m kind of glad that Diamine let this ink stand on its own and didn’t add shimmer or sheen to it. It’s the most interesting red ink of the bunch so far, and that’s saying a lot for a calendar with so many red inks.
