Introducing Manggis. A Diamine extreme sheen exclusive for Pen Gallery.

manggis02.jpgTo be honest, I really like this ink. It is extreme in tone ranging from near black to light pinks. I appreciate that most pen users won't ever experience this but the opportunities are there and the base colour together with the metallic green sheen is simply stunning! Available exclusively from Pen Gallery in Malaysia.

Looks rather similar to their Maureen for Cult Pens.

Similar, very similar but not as pinky. A tad more yellow in it. Very concentrated though! It gets everywhere!

It is beautiful! I am one of those who will likely never be able to coax those effects out of it, but I really appreciate your artwork!

Looks lovely. What kind of paper did you use to get such excellent sheen?

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.

That's typical extreme sheen behaviour. BUT it does force you try different paper surfaces and that's a very good thing to do in any case, as fountain pen ink (no matter what the concentration) behaves differently on each and every surface type.

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.

On the plus side, this ink has made me more appreciative of inks that sheen just a bit.  For example Diamine November Rain.
