I received a letter that was partially written in the ever-popular Stormy Grey. I loved the gold sheen it had, but it is out of stock and my favorite color just so happens to be blue anyway. Here's what I came up with after adding "dashes," "pinches," and "smidgens" of gold powder until satisfied.
I think that I may have gone a bit heavy on the powder, but pictures do not truly represent the look of ink on paper, as I'm sure most of us already know. Looking straight on, the ink looks like an average ink. Only when it is tilted slightly towards a source of light does it begin to show all its glory.
Here's a failed picture showing sheen - this is what the ink looks like without the sheen.
And with sheen:
So far, I really have not had any issues. The pen was skippy and very dry when playing with the ink earlier today. I pulled the nib and feed to inspect them with a loupe, but could see no clogs. I flossed the nib and re-assembled everything, which seemed to solve the problem.
The C/C was very low on ink, though, so I will have to play around with it some more to figure out whether or not it was truly clogged or just running on "fumes."
Love it, hate it, or something in between - let me know what you think.
