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 Blue Ringed Octopus is the most venomous creature in the world, living in the rock pools and shallow waters of Tasmania, and smaller than your hand. Usually a well hidden light brown, it shows off distinct bright blue rings all over its body when threatened. These rings are so bright that they are almost luminescent and often have red around the edges. This ink is our most saturated blue ink to date, with a magnificent red sheen on most paper types.
