5 New Diamines, 2 new Edelsteins, R&K Glass Pens

Of course, the day we begin moving our shop, we get in a slew of awesome stuff, including Rohrer and Klingner Glass Pens, 5 new Diamine inks, and 2 new Edelstein colors! Before breaking down my studio, I decided to take pics and swabs of these cool new things and show them to you. I don’t have much insight to give on these yet as we are dodging electricians fixing lights over our heads, we have things half-packed and in two different locations, and I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off to keep it all together, so this will just be more of a quickie introduction. Enjoy!

Rohrer and Klingner Glass Pens

Rohrer and Klingner Glass Pen, Crazy Insides

Rohrer and Klingner Glass Pen, Pretty Swirls

Rohrer and Klingner Glass Pen set, 3 different combos of two inks

Diamine Apple Glory, VERY vibrant! Brigthest non-highlighter green I’ve ever used

Diamine Aqua Lagoon, very nice turquoise color

Diamine Eau de Nil, darker turquoise leaning heavy blue

Daimine Matador, like Red Dragon but brighter and more vibrant

Diamine Merlot, darker and less burgundy than Syrah, deep wine color

Pelikan Edelstein Tanzanite, pure blue-black designed to replace the ill-fated Pelikan 4001 Blue-Black

Pelikan Edelstein “Ink of the Year” Turmaline, limited run for 2012, bright (but usable) pink

I just wanted to introduce you to these brand new inks and glass pens now, since the GPC shop will be turned upside down for the next week or so. I don’t know how long it’ll take me to get my studio back up and running as getting our shop operational and getting orders shipped out will be the highest priority for me. In any case, I hope you enjoy this little intro 🙂

    Oooh – can't wait to get my hands on the glass pen with dichroic glass in the center. That is SO PRETTY!

    At least the Tanzanite looks a little more purple (as it should) than I'd heard, but the Turmaline is almost a dead on match for the pink part of watermelon tourmaline (http://www.mindat.org/min-10889.html).

  • I have a couple glass pens I picked up at an estate sale. I'd like to see some video demonstrations. Do you have any?

  • The Rohrer and Klingner pens are gorgeous, I was ogling over them all morning 😉 That pic is so cool! I had no idea… 😉 Makes sense! The Edelstein inks are supposed to be based on gems…

    How come the Diamine bottles don't have the names of the inks on the labels? Having a bunch of ink bottles and not knowing what color is in each them would drive me nuts!

  • Diamine does actually have a small sticker on the top of the cap that designates the ink color. I crop these out so that I can use the same bottle image for all of my pictures, that way I only have to take one image instead of 100! Funny enough, you're the first one to ever say anything to me about it since we've been carrying these inks nearly two years ago. 

  • I've never mentioned it but it is a reason I have been reluctant to have more than one bottle on the desk. The 30ml of all the new colors are in a box so all I see are the tops.
    "It's the ink not the bottle", but I have to agree, it's pretty slack on Diamine's part. I'll assume it's the huge line of colors, but then Noodler shows that can be an outlet for creativity. Well in some colors. Others just have the same picture and a tiny color word up at the top.

    I love Edelstein Inks! The colors Jade and Mandarin are also very, very vibrant and pretty! 

  • I like both of these new Edelsteins, they're quite vibrant and saturated, very nice looking on paper!
