Van Dieman's Underwater - Parrot Fish - Shimmer Ink
Reformulated and Improved
2022 sees a complete reformulation of the entire Underwater Series, utilizing new technology and higher quality ingredients, keeping the same beautiful colours, inspired by the colours of our planet's oceans, seas and rivers. All our reformulated inks now contain a minimum of 95% Australian ingredients and are, as ever, handmade in micro batches in Launceston Australia. Our reformulated inks now have better flow, less feathering and bleeding, and higher quality dyes. We have also minimized the number and quantity of additional chemicals added, and all our dyes and additives are approved for food and cosmetics. Give your pen a try of the new reformulated Wilderness Series.
Van Dieman's Underwater is the 7th series from Van Dieman’s Ink. Inspired by the Flora, Fauna, regions and mystery of the ocean, this collection of sixteen fountain pen and shimmer inks contains some of our most unique and experimental inks to date.
The Parrot Fish is one of the most colourful fish imaginable that live in our oceans, and it was the inspiration for this bright and bubbly ink. This ink has a perfect turquoise base colour and a vibrant purple shimmer.
