This is a review of an ink made by Penbbs, the Chinese FPN equivalent. It claims to be a red ink with gold glitter. It seems more deep orange to me. Well behaved and waterproof, no sheen and little shading but a very nice ink. I'm quite tempted to filter out the particles. I bought this from a seller on eBay. The glitter has a tendency to clog a little but not as badly as my experience of Diamine's shimmer inks. I put this in a demonstrator which may have been a little foolhardy but no signs yet of staining. The ink pulls away from the inside to reveal a clearness. If I find it does stain I will update this thread later. Please note that the scans make it look much more red than it actually is. It's more like a burnt orange.

No problem. I just stumbled across it for a reasonable price on ebay and thought I'd give it a go. It would be a really excellent ink without the sparkles,

It look pretty.  Thank you.

Resurrecting this to post a warning. I was filtering out a couple of Diamine Shimmertastics with a coffee filter paper and decided that this Penbbs burnt orange would be a hundred times better without gold gloop - which it is. When I rinsed out the bottle in the sink the gold stuck to the metal sink and needed a really hard scrub to lift it. I thought I better post a warning just in case someone else buys it and puts it in a good pen. I have the glittery infused one in a Twsbi Eco so thankfully that can be taken apart to be cleaned.

Sorry, I didn't. I have to confess, the thought of putting a picture of my dirty sink on here didn't fall to mind readily  :D

How about an up-close writing sample with the "de-glittered" version of the ink?

 

I'm thinking about de-glittering some of my Herbin Rouge Hematite as well because it just makes such a goopy mess around the nib and feed on my Jinhao X450 (the only pen I'm brave enough to put it in since the red stains so bad). Coffee filters are extremely useful!

Very ice review, for a nice ink. Thank you.

 

I like it.

 

Thank you for the warning. It is always good to know.

 

I join TruthFil for the request of a writing sample without the glitter.
