Day 17: Lavender Frost

A shimmer ink plus10 drops gum arabic. Rather a subtle lavender. I'd prefer a more vibrant shade, but nice.

Day 16:  Merry + Bright

A shimmer ink plus 20 drops of gum arabic. Lovely Christmas color--might get a big bottle of this when/if available.

Day 15:  Walnut

A standard ink with no added gum arabic (its most surprising quality--can be used right out of the bottle with a pointed pen). Very dense ink--could not get light to shine through the bottle for a good photo. I very much like this color walnut, better than the ink I made from crystals years ago and others I've bought.

Day 14:  Rainbows End

A chameleon ink plus 5 drops gum arabic. I thought this might be gold, but turns out it's just the highest/lowest frequency colors visible in the rainbow--violet and red. Clever. Interesting.

Day 13:  Weeping Willow

A standard ink which surprisingly (to me) needed no gum arabic to use with a pointed pen. Another surprise was the colors it bled into. So surprising that I thought my nib was contaminated with another color, so I cleaned it very well and put some more ink on the wet paper towel. Virtually a complete rainbow of colors. Not a big fan of the color, although it does look like willow. Let it bleed.

Day 11:  Glacier

A Star Bright ink, no gum arabic. A ton of metallic in this one and hard to photo. Looking at it straight on, it's a medium blue. With light at an angle, almost pure silver. Really interesting. I could see doing Silver anniversary party invitations in this ink (if I did invitations).

Day 10:  Velvet Emerald

Standard ink plus 10 drops gum arabic. A nice but common color. Looks more interesting when it bleeds.

Fabulous and timely post Tiffany! @tiffany.c.a I was going to mention something about this as one of my New Year’s resolutions is to design a return address solution once and for all!

May I suggest an embosser? Don't think the machines can read these.

Day 9:  Moonbeam

A chameleon ink plus 10 drops gum arabic, similar to Nightfall but a little greener. Nice.
Sorry about the bottle photo--the bottle is scratched and I had a hard time photoing it.

Day 8:  Jacaranda

A standard ink, plus 15 drops gum arabic. They really got the color right, especially when it bleeds a little--just like the tree in bloom.

Day 7:  Sweet Dreams

A standard ink plus 15 drops gum arabic added, which seems to be about right for these standard inks.
Not sure how much info the photo of the bottle adds on these standard inks, but I'll continue.

Day 6:  BucksFizz

Another chameleon ink. Added 10 drops of gum arabic to get decent shades and slow precipitation of the metallics, which is quite rapid. Lovely color. Could be great in a sunset rendering.

Day 5:  Nightfall

A chameleon ink--definitely appears different from different angles and in different thicknesses of line. Works well with pointed pen adding 5 drops of gum arabic. I can already tell this will be one of my favorites. Hopefully, Diamine will offer it in larger bottles.
