Yes, that’s right…as if there weren’t too many temptations already! Diamine just released 10 new colors, 2 of which have been on their website for a couple of months (Amazing Amethyst and Sherwood Forest), the other 8 are brand spanking new. Here they are! (These swabs are taken from Diamine’s website, I do not have the inks on hand yet)

Amazing Amethyst:

Asa Blue:





Red Dragon:

Sherwood Forest:

Syrah (aka Binder Burgundy). Apparently Richard Binder developed his own color which became commonly known as Binder Burgundy by mixing Sheaffer Red with Waterman Violette. Word is he worked with Diamine to make Syrah to match his mixture:


My Diamine importer in the US (not sure if there are others or not) is taking a ‘staggered’ approach to bringing in the new colors. They’re planning to bring in these 5 colors within the next month:


Next month they’ll place in another order for the rest of the colors, which should arrive in October sometime:

Asa Blue
Red Dragon
Amazing Amethyst
Sherwood Forest

HOWEVER, they gave me the chance to get all of the new colors in this next shipment (to arrive mid-late August), which I quickly jumped all over! I’ll be getting in 10 bottles (80ml) of all 10 of these new colors (to start). I have NO idea how fast they’ll go once I get them in, and I will be adding them to my Swab Shop as well once I have them in hand. I will only have 10 each of the latter 5 inks for the month or so period in between when I get them and when the US distributor starts to carry them regularly. Email me if you want me to let you know when I have a given color in stock (of course, I’ll be blogging about it too!).
