Don't expect heavy sheening.

Beautiful ink, doesn't stain pen, easy to clean out. Sheening can be achieved depending on paper. If using notebook with 90 gsm paper then you won't get sheen. Using the cardboard box that came with ink I was able to get a sheen laying down large amount of ink. Using large amounts of ink, and using light flash I was able to get sheen to show. Ink dries quickly, and flows smoothly out of pen. A little sweat will smear ink over page.

Swatch did sheen

I haven't written with this yet, so I can't speak to sheening as I write, but I did want to note that I was able to get the green sheen while swatching on a Col-O-Ring card. The sheen showed up on the area where I added a second swab of ink, which is typical for my milder sheening inks. I'll see if I can update my review once I've had a chance to write with the ink. Also, I'm not sure why the ink is showing up blue in the picture, but it's the expected purple in person.

Absolutely gorgeous

This is my favorite ink in my collection, this is just a beautiful color nothing like it! You went regret it

Regular purple

Many, like me, may buy this ink in desperate hopes of getting that awesome green sheen depicted in the photo. You won't. The only way I've managed to come close is leaving the ink out to evaporate and intensify over 2 weeksand then the sheen is still more of a reflection of environmental light than its own native sheen. I'll probably get through rest of bottle with this technique and using something as a dip penbut would have been nice if it worked that way right out of the bottle.

Fairly dry ink. Worked well will lamy pen. No issues, great for notes on lower quality lined paper as it barely bleeds through

FAQs about Bottled Ink

Which pens can accept this ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Any of these fountain pens will work with bottled ink. Typically, as long as the pen can be filled with a converter, has a built-in filling mechanism like a piston, or can be eyedropper-filled, it can accept bottled ink.

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

You can learn more in our blog: How to Write with Shimmering Ink.

My ink smells funny, is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Generally yes! Ink does not smell good- it usually has a chemical smell, along with other scents such as sulfur, rubber, chemicals or even paint. However, as long as you’re not seeing anything floating in the ink, it should be safe to use.

It’s cold and my ink froze; is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes, frozen ink will not hurt your pen (after it’s thawed of course!) The issue with ink freezing is primarily a concern because certain glass bottles could break as the water-based ink expands, and then you’d have a mess!
