Diamine Cerise is a fun, bright pink. I purchased my bottle of ink from Cult Pens.

Cerise is a bright, medium pink.



In large swabs there is just a tiny bit of gold sheen.

Longer Writing:


I used an Edison Collier Blue Steel with a 1.1 stub flex nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.

Overall, it’s a lovely bright pink ink. It’s well behaved and even has a little bit of shading and sheen.
