Diamine Umber

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



Umber is quite interesting green ink. While it’s not most unique color in the world, it still stands out among the sea of other greens. The ink is a little muted but I wouldn’t call it unsaturated. It’s ok as it is. The drying time is reasonable and the ink behavior is nice.

It has no water resistance so if you look for it in your inks, look elsewhere.
