So, I like orange things. Maybe not as much as RandomThinks on Instagram, but I do love me some orange. This ink is fully orange. It's not a shader and it doesn't have any sheen, but it is exactly the right shade and just the right saturation. So good. That's all for now. Enjoy the colors!
All of the pictures in this post were taken in sunlight through my window. They're kinda sun-dappled.
Most of these are from pens that I dipped in the inks to test them. I don't actually have this many orange inks in pens right at the moment. That would be crazy. Ish.
I've heard it said that Akkerman inks are just re-branded Diamine inks, but I'm not at all sure about that. I actually didn't know that I had Diamine Orange in my collection until I started looking for oranges to compare for this post. It's darn close, but Oranje Boven seems deeper, somehow.
Uh...more of that...
Here are some more oranges to compare to Oranje Boven.

You can find this awesome orange ink in 60ml bottles and 3ml samples at Anderson Pens. They sent this ink out for me to review, and they're one of the only places in the US to find this ink. I'm getting a bottle, I think. (It's out of stock right now, but I hope it'll be back soon.) I'd say get a sample of this, at least.
