Can there ever be too many deep teal blue-green inks? Not in my world. Diamine Teal ($14.94 for 80ml bottle) is a deep ocean blue-green color. Its got a bit of shading in a finer nib pen but is more evident in wider strokes and in my painted title. The color is muted enough and dark enough to work-appropriate but interesting enough to keep the most discerning pen geek engaged.

When I loaded Diamine Teal into my TWSBI 580 Christmas Green I was immediately reminded of another favorite, DeAtramentis Petrol. However, DeAtramentis inks are a little more watery than Diamine and the Petrol color is a bit more vibrant than the Teal. So, clearly, I have reasons to need both.

Akkerman #24 Zuiderpark Blauw-Groen is also very similar but is a little darker and has a visible sheen. Akkerman inks are also a bit more expensive and harder to acquire in the States so if you’re looking for a good alternative to #24, I think Diamine Teal is a very close alternative.

  1. Hi Ana,
    This is a nice shade of teal. I just may have to get a sample to try for myself.

    I really like the Diamine inks and have had lots of success with them. I also like their forest green ink. It is a nice dark shade of green and works well with my Delta Fusion pen.
