I can't believe that they discontinued Pomegranate. Seriously???? It was so pretty.

It certainly has a lot of sheen. That was written on cheap, absorbent copy paper and the sheen still showed. I agree with Amberlea; I’m surprised Levenger discontinued it.

Wow.  Forgot how much I love this ink....  :blush:  And on my screen it almost looked as if it had a tiny bit of sheen to it as well.

Today, so far it's been diluted KWZI IG Gummiberry (I was too lazy to flush a pen out so I just refilled with distilled water.  

And I suspect later it will be vintage Quink Microfilm Black, since I have to pay some bills; and maybe Birmingham Schenley Park Thicket Green, which is a really nice color (I just refilled the vintage Sheaffer Balance Oversize with it because I tried the ink over Christmas and liked how it looks coming out of that pen).

Platinum Classic Lavender Black IG, in a Parker Vector with an F nib.

Liking the color very much.  Ink is a bit dry, but still has reasonable flow, is well behaved on bad paper.
