Today we are looking at Diamine Sunshine Yellow. I purchased my 30ml bottle of ink from Cult Pens.
Sunshine Yellow is a bright cheerful yellow, almost an orange.
In large swabs the color leans a bit more orange than it does in writing.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 20 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On 20 pound copy paper the ink behaved well, no issues that I noticed.
Ink swabs for comparison, left to right (top to bottom for mobile RSS): De Atramentis Mahatma Gandhi, Diamine Sunshine Yellow, and Toucan Gold. Click here to see the Diamine inks together.
I used a medium Pelikan M800 Renaissance Brown on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, since it's a darker yellow it's easier to read than most yellow inks are. I think there are a lot of yellow inks in this color range, and this one is pretty well behaved. Give it a try, you might love it.
