Diamine Vermillion

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



Diamine Vermillion isn’t Diamine most popular ink.I think the color is quite interesting but the ink isn’t that thrilling. It feels dryish. It lacks saturation. Lubrication is unsatisfying. Drying time is good.
