Inks With A "sheen"

C - I have had a similar experience with both Tolstoy and Sidney Harbor.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Just curious if anyone has a pic for Diamine Sherwood green - I heard it sheens and got a sample in my last Diamine order but I've tried it out in 3 different pens with multiple nib sizes and have yet to catch any sheen. (writing on rhodia, clairefontaine and cheap notebooks)

 

on another note, I spilled some Diamine Bilberry and got this awesome shot of the sheen:

 

 

 

And this from my experiments with Diamine Blue Pearl: (sheen, shading & sparkles! )

 

 

 

 

PS: I tried adding the pics using a URL from my Onedrive cloud and the platform wouldn't let me,so I just uploaded them as files. How do we add pics?

To think one can write Truth is but an illusion of words. Now BEAUTY! That's a poem of words & forms!

Here is an ink with an insane amount of sheen. The ink is purple but looks green. Sterling Violet Ink Powder.

Take-sumi and Cross Violet. Take's sheen is a pink-y/silver, very shiny, almost mirror-like. The Cross is a green/gold; as you slant the light source from the vertical (violet), you see the dark green shading appear, lowering it further the gold comes up.

ETA: Take-sumi is in a JIF F, Cross Violet in a Kaweco Sport F.

It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.
