I need to check that forum out at some point! Blue Pearl is pretty special if you like deep, rich blues. I like Rouge Haematite, but I got the bottleS with no glitter! So I am very annoyed.
Ouch. The glitter is the whole point of these inks! Perhaps you could send the bottles back for a refund (or maybe it's been too long).
Someone else, jbb, over at fpgeeks posted that she add mica powder to ink after seeing a bunch of these inks. So far, so good. Maybe you could add some mica and use the ink in a Preppy. This is what I'm considering doing with a couple of my inks (e.g., Noodler's Manhattan Blue and Old Manhattan Black).
