We have finally hit the last of the Diamine Flowers set, today's flower is Cornflower. Diamine Flowers comes in a set of 10, but Cult Pens sells the bottles individually. The ink comes in 30ml bottles.
Cornflower is a beautiful blue with a bit of copper sheen.
In large swabs there is a tiny bit of coppery sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and bleeding in every nib size. The extra fine nib spit out a bunch of ink and feathered everywhere.
Overall, I like the color, but it did have a few flow issues, random ink blobs and some bleeding. Monteverde Sapphire is a great alternative, it's more saturated and has a wetter flow.
