I’m a completionist who loves the rainbow, so I couldn’t branch out in ink brands until after I completed the rainbow in one brand. Here are the six Diamine inks I chose: Poppy Red, Orange, Sunshine Yellow, Apple Glory, Aqua Blue, and Lavender.
If you’re looking to get started, my first recommendation is to go into your local pen store, Vanness. They are super nice and friendly. We also have a local art supply store, Art Outfitters. After that, check out Jetpens and Goulet Pens.
May I recommend the Jinhao 450 as a great first pen!
