We're already mid-way through September. Kids settled in the new school year. Work has taken on a get-serious tone. So for Throwback Thursday this week I take a look at Diamine Graphite. It's another ink where I only tried a sample. Since it's been awhile since I tried it, I'll have to rely on my comments from the handwritten review.
Pen: Noodlers Ahab
Ink: Diamine Graphite
Paper: Rhodia No. 16 Grid
Only now I've finally given the Ahab a thorough washing. Seems the flow issues are fixed. About this ink. It seems to write WET!!! It's a very interesting dark grey. How's the shading? Some good shading at the beginning. Certainly this ink dries to a different colour.
I also pulled out the ink swab card that I made for this ink. I can't get over how different the ink looks on the Rhodia paper vs. the Nock Co card. Hard to believe it's the same ink!
This is a very dark grey. For greys, I much prefer the dark rather than faint ones. So this is up my alley. It would make a good pencil substitute from an aesthetic perspective.
