Sorry to drift away from the topic.....

 

 

Not sure if I understand what you mean correctly, but, is it something like this? (Diamine China Blue with Brause No.361 dip pen)

Yes!  That's exactly what I'm talking about.  (For everyone else, you can especially see it in the capital T in "Talks" in the upper righthand corner, and in the word "Some" at the bottom left corner of the image; it's more than just shading, because it really is mostly along the edges.

Anyone else out there experience this with inks?  Anyone know how to describe it better?

Reviews like this are a lot of work. Thank you for your review and sharing it with us on FPN!

Thanks! But it's also loads of fun. I've been enjoying this site passively for some time now, and thought the time had come to contribute something back myself.

I would call it outlining but I don't know how to reproduce that effect.


Be Happy, work at it. Namaste

I don't think so -- my understanding is that the Swans halo (I guess the best description for the "swan effect" might be "controlled feathering").

I never really got it with BSiAR either (I have a bottle of the original formulation), and my experience with  BSiER is limited -- I got a sample of it but wasn't overly enamored of the color.

What I'm talking about is a sort of darker or slightly different toned crispness to the edge of lines -- and it's definitely, IMO, the opposite of feathering....  It's more like a peculiar sort of shading (and is often seen in addition to "normal" shading.  

I can't describe or even define it: only point out inks where I've seen the behavior.  And it even happens on the relatively absorbent, mediocrely FP friendly paper in the cheap Piccadilly sketchbooks from Barnes and Noble that I use for personal ink reviews.
