Manufacturers since 1864, Diamine Inks relocated to this purpose built ‘state of the art’ factory in Liverpool in 1925, where they successfully carried on using the traditional methods and formulas for ink production. Over the years the company has changed hands and are now located close to the world famous Aintree Race Course
Bilberry is a heavily saturated ink that runs smooth as silk. I haven’t observed any feathering, bleedthrough or ghosting on paper I used. Dry time is rather long – it can easily go as far as 20 seconds on some papers. We may discuss if it’s blue with strong purple accents or vice-versa. For me it has more purple than “classic” blue.
