Picking up from the purple ink theme that started last week with Noodler's Purple Martin, this week I'm looking back on Diamine Amazing Amethyst. It's another another ink which I had only got as a sample.
Pen: Lamy Al-Star LE Blue Green 1.1
Ink: Diamine Amazing Amethyst
Paper: Rhodia No. 16 Grid
Ummmm.... This colour is powdery. Not at all what I expect for Amethyst.
Is it mixed with water or the last ink colour? Dunno. It's not very vibrant nor saturated.
So after writing a few lines/pages, it still looks the same. So indeed this amazing amethyst is not so amazing. Just kinda powdery. Not my fave.
Well, based on what wrote as my first impression on this ink, it doesn't sound like a candidate for a full bottle. I didn't mention in the hand written review but there is some decent amount of shading and it's well behaved, at least on Rhodia.
