Diamine Teal ink review

Diamine Teal ink

This is a lovely and unusually coloured ink. I’m not at all sure it’s actually what I’d consider ‘teal’, it’s much more a dark blue with the barest hint of green (if you squint a bit and look out of the corner of your eye, in the right light). I sometimes wonder about Diamine’s naming. However… it is a great colour. It behaves very well too.

Here I am drawing the Inkling.

Please ignore the dry times, I had far too much ink on the pen when I did them. It dries in a perfectly reasonable time. Also, I am using my camera rather than a scanner because my camera captures the colour much more accurately. There is some shadow in this picture but it does (on my monitor anyway) show the colour very well.
