Stained Fingers on Thursday - A Review of Diamine Imperial Purple Ink

I had purchased a number of purple ink samples with the intentions of trying to find a vibrant purple ink for special usage. It needed to be more on the blue end of the purple spectrum, rather than the red/pink end. Diamine Imperial Purple was certainly a winner, in those regards.

This review was scanned at 600dpi on an HP Officejet 6500 E710n-z.
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. Another favourite - I think The Writing Desk's 100ml purple bottles are this ink.

    I like using this one for highlights & action points in my notes, when I'm bored with red :) For a subtler purple, I'm fond of Herbin's Pousserie de Lune, and Diamine's Amazing Amethyst.
