    Nemosine Blue Snowball Nebula Twinkle

    I ordered a sample of Nemosine's new Blue Snowball Nebula Twinkle from Goulet to try out. My first impression was that there is a scary amount of glitter in even the small sample vial. I wouldn't put it into a pen I was scared to dismantle for cleaning. Unfortunately, the picture doesn't show it well. Sticking with the brand, I loaded it up in a Nemosine Singularity with an 0.8mm stub and made it a part of my daily carry kit for several days. The ink is sparkly. Even on cheap paper, if you look at it right, it shows up. Carrying my pen nib up resulted in a visible ring of glitter around

    Glitter In Pens

    After buying a bottle of Diamine Sparkling Shadows, I had a quick thought before using it.. Before using inks like this with gold glitter, you are supposed to shake the bottle to evenly displace the glitter, but how does this apply to the ink when it's IN the pen? At some point the ink will settle once again in the pen, so will I need to somehow mix up the glitter again, or not? If so, how should I do it?
  3. I've been given the opportunity to test some of Dr. J's De Atramentis Sparkly inks, so thanks to all who made this possible! (Wish my photo skills were more advanced.) I tested the Columbia Blue series, and here, on the same Rhodia Ice paper, lined this time, with the same pens (Hero 359s), I tested the Copper, Gold, and Silver variants. But unlike the Bronze batch, all three of these variants leaked and blobbed (the silver, all over my hands). I don't know what went wrong; all four of the Hero 359 pens have been in use before without blurping, and all four were cartridge-loaded. As

  5. As you may have noticed from my previous review (Diamine Shimmertastic Sparkling Shadows), I do not dislike that much sparkling inks, and I do not dislike sheeny inks either. For this reason I ordered online a bottle of J.Herbin 1670 Emerald of Chivoir, as I've been told to be something like "the Grail ink" for those who likes this kind of properties. I received instead Caroube du Chypre, and since I like browns, I just decided to keep it and give it a try. Caroube du Chypre is a well behaving brown, quite complicated colour, made by a prevalent ammount of magenta/red tones over the turqu
  6. Sometimes inks are not made for being used at work, for taking notes, for normal correspondence... but they are so gorgeous that you simply don't mind what other people could think of you and keep using them like there's no tomorrow. The review which is going to follow is the complicated love story between me and Diamine Shimmertastic Sparkling Shadows. Diamine Shimmertastic Sparkling Shadow is a interesting grey ink, dark enough to be definitely usable, with high ammount of nice shading on every paper, and lots of nice gold glitters. Like most Diamine Inks, has really good characteristic
  7. I've been perusing with interest the threads on additives to ink for sparkly purposes. It's past midnight here and one of those connective thoughts has come to mind between two hobbies: hydrocolloids and ink. Therefore need a chemist to weigh in here. Would food additive E415 Xanthan Gum in ultra tiny amounts (it's very very very effective) help suspend the glitter/pearl/mica particles when the pen/vial is still for more even and simpler distribution, yet due to it's unique shear-thinning characteristics allow good flow with just a shake of the pen? For people unfamiliar with E415, page

  9. Hey guys. I'm almost through my sample of 1670 Stormy Gray, and am absolutely in love with both the base color and the glitter factor. It lead me to wondering.... are there any fine enough glitters that we could add it to bottled ink and get that kind of sheen/shine effect, without destroying pens? Imagine a lovely blue with a silver glitter, or a yellow with green... Has anyone tried? I know there's been some discussion for dip pens, but clearly J Herbin found a way to make glitter FP-friendly.....
