Today I've been playing with Diamine Citrus Ice, another ink from the 2017 Diamine Shimmertastics collection. I purchased my sample of ink from Vanness Pens.
Citrus Ice is a bright yellow-orange with silver shimmer.
I love the silver shimmer with this ink-it's a bit more of a subtle combo than some of the other simmer inks I have seen, which really appeals to me.
Dry time: 20 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Low
On 20 pound copy paper, the ink did great-no problems.
I used a medium Edison Nouveau Premier Seaglass on Tomoe River paper. The ink felt a bit dry to me. It wasn't unusably dry or anything, just slightly drier than average.
Overall, I love the color-it feels like a shimmer version of Robert Oster Peach, which is an ink I love, but it is on the drier side. If Citrus Ice was just a bit wetter I would be in love with it, so for now I'll just use it in wetter pens. If Robert Oster ever came out with a silver shimmer version of Peach, I would be all over that. If you don't love shimmer but you like the color, give Peach a shot-it's a great non-shimmer option of this color.
