Diamine Arabian Nights is the final ink from the 2017 Diamine Shimmertastic collection. I purchased my sample of ink from Vanness Pens.
Arabian Nights is a dark blue with silver shimmer.
The ink drops are beautiful-mostly shimmer.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On 20 pound copy paper, the ink did rather well, just a little bit of feathering.
Ink swabs for comparison, left to right (top to bottom for mobile RSS): Diamine Cobalt Jazz, Diamine Arabian Nights, and Diamine Frosted Orchid. Click here to see the Diamine inks together. For a while I couldn't decide if Arabian Nights is blue or purple, but I think it leans a bit more to the blue side.
I used a fine Visconti Rembrandt on Tomoe River paper. The ink felt average in flow, maybe a touch on the dry side.
Overall, I really like the color of this ink. It behaves rather well, and looks great with the silver shimmer.
