Day 16 of Diamine’s Inkvent. Let’s hope that we don’t get another scented ink soon…
Day 16’s ink is Diamine Serendipity (quite a mouthful) – a shimmering and sheening dark blue ink.
Diamine Serendipity has a red sheen (of course) and gold shimmer. In Diamine’s defence, the red sheen is closer to the purple/pink side of the spectrum, which is a nice change from the usual, and the gold shimmer does make it particularly festive.
The base colour of this ink is interesting – despite being dark and saturated, there is some shading towards the teal end of the spectrum. As per my usual experience with inks that both shimmer and sheen, the sheen overpowers the shimmer in most viewing angles.
I had another nib accident with a TWSBI Go here (a different pen, of course, but with the same issue – the nib and feed weren’t properly set in after a clean), so there’s a big smudge at the start of the writing sample. Diamine Serendipity is a nice enough ink, but not one that I see myself rushing out to buy, as there are so many inks in the same colour range and with the same properties, and I already have a good selection of them. I do like the deep, dark, bluish teal base colour of this ink very much though, and I’m glad that it is part of this year’s Inkvent.
