Stained Fingers on Thursday - A Review of Diamine Turquoise Ink

The shades of this ink are a lot brighter than they appear on this paper. In fact, when I first tested them in the J. Herbin Rollerball, I was a bit startled at the fairly intense coloring (though certainly not blinding).

Edit 10/2/13: Re-scanned to add more comparisons.

This scan was done on an HP Deskjet F4280 at 600dpi.
Note: Because these scans are done with a light emitting printer, actual colors will, more likely than not, be slightly darker than they may appear, here. The colors shown, here, are probably a bit more reminiscent of what the ink would be like under a bright light or if it were held up and viewed with a light behind it.


  1. I love this ink! I first tried it in one of Diamine's mixed cartridge packs, and really enjoyed it. For want of a better way to say it, it's a cheery ink, the sort of colour that peps you up just using it.

    1. That was how/where I first tried it, as well. I agree on the description of "cheery!"
