Diamine Inkvent Day 10

Caveat: this year’s Inkvent appears to have elusive ink colours. I suggest reading my description of the inks and not going by the photos alone, and comparing my results with those of other reviewers. 

The Diamine Inkvent calendar is an advent calendar with 24 tiny (12ml) bottles of fountain pen ink behind 24 doors, and a larger, 30ml, bottle of ink behind the 25th door. All the inks are limited edition, and, at the moment, only available through this calendar.

Day 10’s door.

Day 10’s ink is Diamine Peach Punch, and it’s pretty amazing. It’s a peach coloured ink with a ton of shading, and it’s sure to brighten up any page.

Diamine Peach Punch is a standard ink with utterly non-standard amounts of shading. It goes from a light coral to a dark orange, and you don’t even have to bother with special paper or a super wide nib to get the shading effect.

How is this wildly shading ink “standard”?

Here’s a Col-o-Ring swab of Diamine Peach Punch. You can really see the wild shading here:

I inked up a Kaweco AC Sport Red with a fine nib and the ridiculous Kaweco Sport converter. It holds about a drop or two of ink, but that was more than enough to give Diamine Peach Punch a try.

Of course I had to draw a giant peach for this ink.

This was drawn on a Kanso Sasshi 3.5” x 5.5” Tomoe River Paper notebook (the notebooks I have were bought in 2016, and so they contain the old Tomoe River paper).

Finally, I wrote a page in my Midori Journal:

If I didn’t already have a bottle of Diamine Coral, I would have been tempted to buy a bottle of Peacg Punch. As it is, I’m glad to finally encounter a truly bright and optimistic colour in this year’s Inkvent. This and Candle Light give me some hope that there are more cheery colour ahead.
