Today’s ink is Diamine Wild Strawberry. I have always liked the color of this ink, it’s bright and happy. I purchased my 30ml bottle of ink from Cult Pens.
Wild Strawberry is a light, bright red. I wouldn’t say it’s a strawberry red since this is much brighter and pinker than strawberries, but it’s a pretty summer red.
In large swabs there is just a little bit of gold sheen, not much shading though.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 40 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering in all nib sizes and a little bit of bleeding in the larger nib sizes.
There are a lot of vibrant reds with a similar color to Wild Strawberry. Tulip is just a bit darker than Wild Strawberry, as is Fire Engine Red. Click here to see the Diamine inks together.
Overall, it’s one of my favorite summery red inks. I use this ink often-it’s well behaved and a pretty color.
