Krishna Sheening Inks - Swatch Tests


Recommended Posts



Krishna Inks very kindly sent me two of their new sheening inks. Sakthy, which is a vermilion red and Moonview which is a very dark blue. When swatch tested on heavy duty watercolour paper the Sathky appeared heavy and didn't blend that well with the water. The Moonview, on the other hand, blended very easily and filled the swatch card quickly revealing some rather lovely royal blues blending into cyan and turquoise. Both inks resisted the bleach save for in the lightest of breakdown areas - you can see the dark lines where the bleach was applied - no neon.




When used for writing through a fountain pen nib, both inks flow well and rich with good colours and plenty of sheening when viewed at an angle.





When used on cartridge paper, the Sakthy sheened at the edges of the marks but also showed evidence of bleeding at the edges, the Moonview was nearly 100% sheen! I've never seen this before but also showed evidence of bleeding at the edges.





When used on the Rhodia surface, both the Sakthy and the Moonview sheened at the edges of the marks.


For sheen freaks, these two are probably destined for your collections. For the more creative chromatic geeks...

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
