Diamine Night Sky

  • Colour: Cool black (daaark grey, not quite black) with blue shimmer.
  • Special Attributes:
    • Shade: Not without water.
    • Sheen: Nope.
    • Shimmer: It’s supposed to be silver shimmer, but it looks blue to me.
  • Watercolour Usage: With water, we get a nice blue around the edges, but it stays mostly grey. I think the softness of the grey is fabulous for watercolour.
  • Harkens to Mind: A winter snowstorm in a city after midnight.
  • Similar to: It’s like the inkvent Tempest by Diamine but with blue instead of gold shimmer. Important to note that it’s not a deep black.
  • Expense: $22/80ml (Only about £10 though in the UK) as of 2023.
  • Example: Lady GaGa.

Writing Sample


For art, there are better but this one is nice with the shimmer. It’s not intense enough for me, though. If I’m using black, I want it to be void of colour, and if I’m using grey I want it to be lighter and more dynamic. So this one isn’t anything I’d buy for myself.
