  1. Has anyone tried any of the 芸景堂 (yún jǐng táng) inks, especially those from Season Seven, which seem to be in the vein of the lighter, multi-hued colours in the Sailor Ink Studio line? Source: AliExpress At nominally US$8.80 per 30ml bottle, I think they're priced competitively against Sailor Ink Studio and Sailor Manyo inks, assuming that they are as good and/or interesting as the Japanese inks. However, shipping charges for bottle of ink (and often customs issues with exporting liquids through the post from China) and border taxes lift the effective averaged cos
  2. Hello, I've always been careful with my 61, putting some tame blue or black into it while my other pens enjoy my 'fancier' inks. It's kind of a shame since my 61's nib is really smooth and wet, and I'd love to put a high-sheen Noodler's ink or the rest of my Emerald of Chivor in there, but I was always leery of the capillary filler's sensitivity, especially with pigment or gold particulates. Has anyone had the bravery to put a nastier ink in their capillary 61's, and what has been the success rate of such an endeavor? Regards!
  3. Jacques Herbin Vert Atlantide / Atlantis Green Continuing on from this discussion on voting for the new 350th anniversary J. Herbin annivarsary here: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/352545-vote-on-the-new-jacques-herbin-glitter-colour/ I'm compiling some of the few available writing and drawing samples made with this upcoming ink. This will be a limited edition ink. The color appears to be a dark grayed green with both gold and silver shimmer.

    What Is A Must Have Shimmer Ink

    What is a must have shimmer ink in your opinion that has the most color variation, character and safe
  5. 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-
  6. What do you do with shimmer inks that you don't like? Try to make them into shimmer inks that you do like... I was aiming for a grey here, but I got a black instead. It's still nice. I haven't noticed anything funky settling on the bottom of my mixing jar in 24 hours, with the exception, obviously, of glitter particles. 2 parts Pelikan Edelstein Sapphire 1 part Diamine Golden Oasis 1 part Pelikan 4001 Brilliant Red 1 part Caran d'Ache Cosmic Black I'm fairly sure you could replace any of these colours with a generic enough royal blue, bright orangy-red, and black ink and get very simi

    Diamine Golden Oasis

    I was debating where to put this because it's a lot of pictures but not really a review. But anyway, the spouse procured a bottle of Diamine Golden Oasis, a shimmer ink. This is not really my shade of green and shimmer inks are also not my jam, but I did some writing on different papers to test it out in my FPR Himalaya ultra flex pen and thought I'd share it here. As stated in the written part, I shook the bottle gently before inking the pen, and I agitated the pen by gently rolling my wrist about every two lines for all of its. I get the feeling the gold particles settle in this ink part
  8. I own a bunch of bril, camlin and penhouse inks, but they only come in the standard colours. Are there any indian made FP inks which are different, shimmer or non shimmer, other than the Krishna inks? Diamine costs a bomb here. An issue I have with the inks I own are that they are not saturated enough, especially the bril ones. Recommendations for good solid color are also welcome.

    Help! Robert Oster Inks

    Hi, I am in love with the Robert Oster signature inks and I want to them. I live in India. Where can I get Robert Oster inks in India?
  10. Dr. J. has developed a new line of pearlescent inks. I received samples of Brilliant Violet with each of the four "sparkly-effects": bronze, copper, gold and silver. DeAtramentis Brilliant Violet, dip pen, Clairfontaine paper Photos taken with iPhone For this "mini-review" of these 4 samples, I have used a Venetian dip pen and a Chinese M&G fountain pen with medium fude nib. The fude nib allows for thick or thin lines depending upon the angle of which the pen is held. The papers I used included Clairfontaine, Tomoe River and Cambridge spiral bound notebook paper.

    Diamine Shimmer Inks - Part 3

    First Impressions. We have already seen the colours but here is one of my 'first impression' reviews, including written examples. As usual, all of my written tests have been done using a Sailor Sapporo pen with B nib, so roughly equivalent to a Western M, and the standard Rhodia 80gsm white grid paper. I chose the Sailor for the simple reason that the pen is very easy to clean out, even taking the nib apart should it become necessary. It wasn't! Although I used a rubber bulb to speed up the flushing process between colours (just for time's sake) all the inks were easy to remove from the pen

DeAtramentis India Blue, dip pen, Clairfontaine photos taken with iPhone, no color correction For this "mini-review" of these 4 samples, I have used a dip pen and a Conklin Duragraph fountain pen with 1.1 stub nib. The papers I used included Clairfontaine, Tomoe River and Cambridge spiral bound notebook paper. This ink is a wonderfully saturated royal blue. Overall, the flow was wonderful - nicely lubricated with great

    Ruby-Red Pelikan M320

    I just bought a brand-new Ruby Red M320 and I couldn't be happier with a pen. Now, I must preface my totally subjective remarks by saying I have very small hands and I love miniature anything, especially mini fountain pens. But when I ordered it, I had no idea it was such a teeny-tiny, adorable slip of a pen! I opened the box and was totally floored by how cute it looked, lying there in its full-size Pelikan container. At the same time, the classic beauty of this pen took my breath away. The finish on this pen is GORGEOUS. (I'm trying to attach photos to this review.) When I hold the p

    Mixing Diamine Shimmer Inks?

    Does anyone know whether Diamine shimmer inks can be mixed? It seems that it might be possible to put together a CYMK set from the Diamine inks -- perhaps Blue Lightning, Golden Sands, Magenta Flash, and Sparkling Shadows. It should be possible to make other colours so long as one doesn't particularly mind whether the sparkles are silver or gold

    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?
  16. I've just completed my simple review of the latest twelve new inks in the Shimmer range, from Diamine. Six with gold particles and six with silver. Although I don't like 'particle' inks, per se, this new release is actually superb. Let's be honest though; it's purely my opinion and I don't really think that any judgement should be made before trying them out for yourselves. As with any ink/pen/paper combination. But, we should all know and respect that... There are a dozen new colours as I mentioned and I will just post a simple scan of my test. I've recently had to get a new phone but it ha

DeAtramentis Cyan Blue, dip pen, Clairfontaine photos taken with iPhone, no color correction For this "mini-review" of these 4 samples, I have used a dip pen and a Jinhao 450 with 1.1 stub nib. The papers I used included Clairfontaine, Tomoe River and Cambridge spiral bound notebook paper. Overall, the ink flow was excellent. In addition to the lovely shimmery effect, the ink shaded nicely. The ink did need to be agitat

    J. Herbin 1670 Stormy Grey

    Sorry that the pictures of my last two posts had some problems showing.... This time I'm trying the "Attach files" function and photobucket, hope they both work! (they seem fine in preview, though...) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- J. Herbin 1670 Stormy Grey A grey ink with gold flakes, released in late 2014 by J. Herbin. This is my first bottle of shimmering ink, and I'm sure it will stay on my fascination list for a while. Look at the box and bottle design---even if you are not actually using the ink, it makes
  20. I got four of these last week when they came out and I've been playing with them for a few days now. Quite apart from the shimmering aspect, the colours are surprisingly good and very nice. I got Night Sky, Blue Lightning, Golden Sands and Brandy Dazzle. I wanted to share my experience here and see if ti matched others. I find them a bit of mixed bag to be honest. I've yet to try Brandy Dazzle, but here are the others: Night Sky It's sort of thick and gloopy but writes a true carbon black with little grey. I like that a lot. The shimmer is very subtle and nice but I had repeated hard starts. B

    Diamine Shimmer Inks - First Impressions!

    Having had samples of some of these amazing inks since May, it has taken a lot self-control not to leak any images of them. So it was great to get the go-ahead from Diamine earlier this week, and we're allowed to put up some more detailed information on Friday 28th August, 2015. That's TODAY! Now, there have some changes over the last few months and some colours have been altered and decisions made about whether there should be gold or silver particles in any particular one but the people at Diamine did listen to those of us who passed comments and opinions and the resultant ten colou
