Diamine Inkvent 2022 Day 10: Dusted Truffle

It’s day 10 of Inkvent, and interesting inks are upon us…

Day 10’s door

Day 10’s ink is Diamine Dusted Truffle a shimmer ink of an indescribable shade of on the cusp between light brown and grey.

I took a photo of the swab on an angle to try and show the colour of this ink. It’s a dusty golden brown in some angles, it has a greenish tinge in others, it’s very unique and chimeric.

You can see the more greyish tendencies of this ink in this quick truffle sketch. I don’t know if dusted truffle is the best name for this ink, but it certainly has a dustiness about it. It shades well, and there’s a silver shimmer to it, where you’d normally expect a golden one. Perhaps that gives it some of its unique shading.

Will I buy a full bottle of this ink? Maybe. It’s certainly high on my list, as I have nothing remotely like it in my ink selection, and it is an intriguing colour. I can’t stop staring at it trying to define what it is and failing. What a wonderful addition to Diamine’s ink lineup.

    It’s good to see your end written observations on these inks. Going for your emotional reaction to them is a great way of describing how inks can be of value to holistic writing experiences. You may have a fantastic pen for instance. If filled with the either the perfect or disastrous ink makes a huge difference. The paper written on is a vital contributor in the equation too. So very many combinations! Great to see when they all come together in harmony. Many thanks. All the best.
