Diamine Monaco Red

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


Monaco Red is interesting earthy red ink. After reading some other reviews one could expect more vibrant red but in my experience this ink is a little subdued. I like it. It has a lot of shading and allow you to get result with more or less depth depending on the pen and nib you use.
