We are continuing with the Diamine Flowers Set, today's flower ink is Diamine Gerbera. Usually this set is only available in 10-bottle sets, but I found that Cult Pens sells the bottles individually.
Gerbera is a beautiful orange. I don't usually like orange inks that much, but I love this color.
In large swabs there wasn't much shading, the color is pretty consistent.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 50 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and just a little bit of bleeding, mainly in the flex nib. The ink did spit out a blob of ink at the top of the page.
Overall, I love the color of this ink. Like some of the other Flowers inks, the ink did spit out a few blobs, and the dry time is a bit long. I really do love this color though.
