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
Poppy Red is a bright, saturated and vibrant red ink. It’s not as strongly saturated as Wild Strawberry but it definitely pops out of a page. The flow is good but not excellent. There’s some shadingh potential. Not the best red in Diamine line but worth attention nevertheless.
