Today's ink is Diamine Caramel Sparkle, from the 2016 Diamine Shimmertastic collection. I purchased my sample of ink from Vanness Pens.
Caramel Sparkle is an orange-brown with gold shimmer.
I think the gold shimmer goes really well with this ink color. It surprised me how much I liked it.
For this review, I used 4 Lamy Al-star/Safari's and a Waterman's Ideal 52 1/2 flex nib.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On 32 pound copy paper, the ink did really well, just a little bit of bleeding in the flex nib.
I used an extra-fine Lamy Al-Star on Tomoe River paper. I didn't have any flow issues. It had an average flow.
Overall, I love this ink, which really surprised me. I think it's just the way the color looks with the gold shimmer in the flex nib. It shows average behavior, I just really love the color for fall-it's beautiful. I need a full bottle of this one, I know fall is pretty much over, but I need a bottle for next fall-just thinking ahead.
