Nice! I mostly get it around the edges of the letters.

After seeing the photo of the gold sheen on the Levenger Cardinal Red, I thought I'd check my Claret.

and with the light on it fpn_1467759508__215_crop.jpg

 

Funny thing is, I went back and looked in my ink log at the first couple of writing samples of this and there's really nothing there; looking more closely, however, there is some - on a comma, a period and just a few flecks on the bottoms strokes of a few letters, nothing obvious enough to have attracted any scrutiny. As you can see here, the sheen is as heavy as Oku-yama.

The pen has been sitting for a few months, unused except for an occasional line or two in the log to make sure the feed is wet that I didn't look at twice. The pen is a fine nib, very wet Jinhao 611. The paper here is German-made BnR spiral but it also show on the little Polish-made spiral, too. On my two Rhodia pads, the sheen is quite obvious on the wet ink as it dries but most of it is eventually absorbed into the paper, making it hard to see it.


It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

Yes, the Platinum Black cartridge that came with my Plaisir. Who'da thunk it?

Why, thanks again.

I have seen the elusive Cyclamen but, sadly, not in great enough quantity to photograph, just a touch here and there, usually the initial stroke from the ink that's been sitting in the tip of the rollerball. Hmm, maybe if I put it in a fountain pen ...

I have it in a very wet writers, and the sheen is most apparent on certain papers (vellum, Tomoe River, etc.) more than others.  So Cyclamen is one the inks I'd call a "contextual sheener," while something like Oku-yama or Dark Lilac are truly consistent sheeners.

Pretty!  Love the red.  Love the sheen.  I think I need this one!
