Since we are now into fall, I've been craving more oranges in my writing. Diamine Pumpkin fits the bill. I purchased my bottle of Pumpkin from Cult Pens

The color...

Pumpkin is a medium orange, perfect for fall.

The large swabs show just a tiny bit of gold sheen.

The ink drops have a lot more red in them than shows in actual writing.

Dry time: 30 seconds

Water resistance: low

Feathering: None

Show through: low to medium

Bleeding: None

Other properties: There is a tiny bit of gold sheen in large swabs, and low shading.

Longer writing:

I used a Pilot 912 FA on Tomoe River paper. I did have just a little bit of railroading. 

Overall, this is a very well-behaved ink. It's a bit too bright for me, but if you love orange inks, give it a try.
