  1. Inky folks: Looking for advice on choosing an ink. Your help will be greatly appreciated, and *will* result in a purchase! I’m nuts for purple inks. I’ve got way more of the stuff than is rational. And, until recently, I’d sworn off buying any more, because, really, I’m unlikely to go through my current stock in my lifetime. It’s that bad. But, now, I’ve decided to break my self-imposed prohibition, because I’m dying to try one (or more) of the super-sheeny inks that have come available in recent years. Other than a few conventional inks that had some sheen as an incidental property, I have never bought an ink with particular sheen. I have recently been seduced by photos on social media – mostly here and Reddit – that show some marvellous effects from inks designed for sheen. Because of my addiction to purple inks, I’m drawn particularly to the blue/red inks. The ones I’m most familiar with are: Diamine MaureenDiamine Skull & RosesOrganics NitrogenOrganics EmersonI’ve read reviews of these inks, and all seem to have puts and takes. But I’m not going to buy four inks to find out for myself. I’m going to buy one…ok, maybe two. Can you gurus weigh in on which one you’d choose if you applied the following criteria? Most noticeable sheen in normal writing, with a med or broad stub nibDominant apparent colour is purple-y – regardless of the tone of the sheenFlows well – preferring wet and lubricious to dry and finicky. No hard startsDries *reasonably* quickly. Notably slow-drying inks are off the table. I’m looking for a normal drying time.…or just let me know what your experience of any one of these inks has been, in relation to these criteria. Based on the reviews over at mountainofink, I'm leaning toward the Diamine Maureen. If there's an extant thread that addresses these questions, I apologise for doubling up, and would be grateful for a pointer to it. So many thanks, in advance. -- Houston
