Diamine Inkvent 2022 Day 11: Appletini

It’s time for day 11 in Diamine’s Inkvent calendar.

Door 11

Day 11’s ink is Diamine Appletini. I’m not sure how much of a tie in that has to Christmas, but I guess a bright green ink is always welcome at this time of year.

Diamine Appletini is a bright grass green standard ink with some nice shading to it.

It’s not a chameleon ink, but Appletini’s colour really brought to mind chameleons and so I sketched one for testing purposes:

I used a Kaweco Sport iridescent medium nibbed fountain pen to test Diamine Appletini and got a good amount of shading with it. It’s not the most practical of colours, but is a bright and cheerful one, which make it nice to use during the cold and dark winter months.
