A new calligraphy ink by Manuscript with extreme shimmer. Definitely not something to use in the office but it looked interesting to write some cards with in the upcoming holiday season. This ink is clearly not meant for long notes or letters. A very dark violet or purple with heavy gold shimmer.

 

I find it a hard to use ink. OK to use in a fountain pen like the TWSBI ECO with a stub nib, but a dip pen made the ink feather and spread, even on Clairefontaine or Crown Mill Vellum paper. On Lalo Vergé it was much better. The ink is very wet, causing considerable show-through and even some bleed-through. The drying time wasn't too bad though with 35 seconds. The shimmer smears easily for a bit longer. As can be seen even on this scan, shimmer is gold and very high. A bit of water will keep the ink readable, enough to rewrite.

 

The violet or purple is comparable to Herbin's Améthyste de l'OuralDiamine's Imperial Purple (no shimmer) is brighter and lighter. 

 

 

 
All in all this is a nice ink to have and it will have its use for greeting, holidays, or birthday cards.

I believe that's sheen, shimmer are metallic particles suspended in ink iirc.

The ink is called shimmer ink snd theres definitely a lot of metallic particles in it. Besides that there is some sheen visible too, but much less clear and mostly with the poster nib snd splashes.
