That's some wild sheen! Looks super cool.

 

I am loving this Canson vellum from HalloweenHJB! It is super awesome for showing off sheen!

I'll look into that. I've been using rhodia and tomoe paper. But the pens I've been using are a fine nib and don't write very wet. Hopefully the medium italic FC pocket 66 might be a good candidate for showing off the sheen.

A wet pen and a broader nib can really help in the quest for sheen! Tomoe River is usually pretty good at showing sheen, more than Rhodia imo.

Yup found that out. Kinda strange though, for some reason I'm having the opposite, my tomoe shows less sheen than the rhodia.

Souten's sheen is crazy. It's almost too crazy for me, even. I don't have it inked up at the moment, but the sheen added a light red flair to the writing. It's when I used it in my (really wet) Ahab that I started seeing the oiliness. It acted strangely on paper; during reverse writing, it looked like a normal blue, no sheen. When I used a stub, Souten looked almost black on paper, all entirely sheen.

 

Side note; I let the Ahab sit for three weeks inked up with Souten by accident, and by the end of it about half of it dried up and the ink was really dark, "sheeny", and oily.

Your description is making me love it all the more!

Wow, Attila! First off, I think I am changing my mind about the new Herbin green. I really don't need another ink....nope nope nope.*

 

Which Bung Box is the last ink? Wonderful handwriting in both shots.

 

 

*I am doomed to buy this.
