This week we are testing out the Diamine Flowers Set. Usually this set is only available in 10-bottle sets, but I found that Cult Pens sells the bottles individually. Today's flower ink is Diamine Tulip.
Tulip is a bright, true red.
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: 30 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.
Overall, it's a pretty true red and pretty well behaved too, which is lovely. For $3.86 for 30ml, you really can't go wrong.
