More Diamine Blues

Diamine Imperial Blue – Bleeds easily BUT as you can see, this ink when added to water is almost a deep purple with just a hint of cyan blue at the edges of the wash. It does react when subjected to bleach but only manages a half hearted white. Flows well when used for writing with a definite purple hue.

Diamine Sapphire Blue – Bleeds very easily when added to water with hints of purple and a gorgeous turquoise in the lighter washes. Turns a white gold colour when subjected to bleach. Flows well when used for writing with a hint of purple coming through.

Diamine Steel Blue – Bleeds easily BUT as you can see, this gorgeous dark ink when added to water breaks down into a deep greeny turquoise at the edges of the wash. Turns a neon white gold colour when subjected to bleach. Flows well when used for writing with a definite green hue to it.

All three inks are very pure and at the edges of the blue spectrum with no visible sediments. Ideal for painting as well as writing.
