My Manggis ink finally arrived. It is very strange ink. On copy paper is a nice bright burgundy, on Tomoe River it sheens so much it is all green, and on some papers it is a mix of burgundy and green such that it is something of a muddy brown. Not sure I like it, but not ready to give up on it yet.
My experience is the same. I dislike how this ink's sheen is there all the time, from all view points. Where my Organic Studios monstersheeners display the base color from one angle and a fully opaque sheen from another, this ink instead has the sheen showing all the time making it busy and/ muddy looking.
On top of that I was a disappointed with the base color thinking this is more of a purple than the dark pink it really is. I don't really like magentas. On pengallery's website it is described as a "deep purple" which I don't think this is.
