Yes Barrier Reef Blue sheens everywhere. But my Sydney Harbour Blue doesn't sheen much, it feathers. I guess they've put too much surfactant in it...

 

 

Interesting you say that.   My Sidney Harbour (originally) did not sheen much .. at least compare to Barrier Reef.  But a few weeks later (maybe a month).. I noticed that Sidney Harbour Blue was a monster sheener.  I have noticed that with a few inks, leaving it in the pen for some time, water evaporates, they become more saturated and sheen like crazy.

 

MB Tolstoy is another example.  Mine sheens  like Barrier Reef.

Just curious if anyone has a pic for Diamine Sherwood green  - I heard it sheens and got a sample in my last Diamine order but I've tried it out in 3 different pens with multiple nib sizes and have yet to catch any sheen. (writing on rhodia, clairefontaine and cheap notebooks)

 

on another note, I spilled some Diamine Bilberry and got this awesome shot of the sheen:

 

 

 

And this from my experiments with Diamine Blue Pearl: (sheen, shading & sparkles! )

 

 

 

 

PS:  I tried adding the pics using a URL from my Onedrive cloud and the platform wouldn't let me,so I just uploaded them as files.  How do we add pics?

Here is an ink with an insane amount of sheen. The ink is purple but looks green.  Sterling Violet Ink Powder.
