I understand that it is the sheen that smears. Yet, they are the only ones of the sheening inks I own that are this bad.
Rhodia and Clairefontaine paper make the "problem" worse, as they are not very porous.
Lay down enough ink to sheen, and it will smear just from rubbing with a finger, on which there are microscopic beads of sweat/moisture on the skin.
The paper I used for the card stock is Arttec Como 210gm drawing paper
, and so should not have a problem with ink taking hold. The November Rain splats were done four days ago, and the other others about three weeks ago.
A discussion about objects, techniques and applications should not be a contest of personal values. Your values mean nothing to me and require naught from me, and I'll gladly assume my values equally mean nothing to you and do not impose on you in any way; my dissenting views do not oppress your personal views, when neither of us can claim to represent the majority position or consensus, or speak on behalf of the community of fountain pen hobbyists worldwide. Let's treat each other with due respect prescribed by some entity bigger than either of us without our input and just offer our sentimental opinions of no particular standing with anyone else, without trying to control the narrative, or demand moral support and/or solidarity from others as consumers and users.
