Ink Challenge 2017-112: Three Shades of Teal
I wanted to see what my two most used teal inks look like compared to the Lamy Petrol. The competitors are:
1. Lamy - Petrol
2. Diamine Teal
3. P. W. Akkerman (Dutch Masters) - no.05 Israel's Zeeblauw.
The three inks are ordered from dark to light, the colors are different as well as their intensity. The Petrol is a very dark greenish teal , the Diamine Teal is a medium greenish teal, while the Zeeblauw is a light bluish teal.
The sheen diminishes with the darkness of the ink. It can be seen in the triangle that the Petrol is almost completely engulfed with a red copper sheen, while the Zeeblauw has just a small amount.
The shading is great with both the Diamine and the Zeeblauw, and the Petrol is a mile behind.
Another big difference between the inks is the dry time. The Zeeblauw dries fast enough for fast note taking at work, making sure you can turn the page without any problems ahead. The Petrol is usable enough, but the Diamine takes too long for me.
Overall the Petrol is the winner, followed by the Zeeblauw.
