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 11’s ink is Diamine Party Time, and it’s about time! This is a bright pink with a bluish silver shimmer, and it’s 100% befitting of its name.
Shimmer all the way! Of course Party Time shimmers 🙂
Here’s a Col-o-Ring swab of Diamine Party Time. There’s a good amount of shimmer in this ink, but sadly the photo doesn’t really capture it. I tried capturing it from a different angle in a later photo.
I used a Pilot Falcon with a soft fine nib to test out Diamine Party Time.
Here’s a slightly better view of the shimmer in Diamine Party time.
I decided to sketch a board game party that I hosted a few years ago (pre Covid times). It’s a rough sketch, but it’s all I can do under the circumstances with my neuropathy being what it is.
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:
Diamine Party Time is a bright and joyful ink that is a nice departure from the previous inks in this year’s Inkvent. While I don’t see myself purchasing an entire bottle of it, it is still a fun ink to play around with.
