Diamine Delamere Green

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


Delamere Green has mid to dark green colour, very good flow and is well saturated. Drying times are not that great (especially if you like using broader nibs), but unless you tend to rub written text, it shouldn’t be a problem. There’s some feathering on cheaper and absorbent paper and visible bleedthrough on copy paper.
I’m quite surprised by this ink – usually I’m not that much into similar colors but I kind of like this one. I imagine it can look really cool in wet 1,5 stub.
