Today's ink is another from the Diamine Shimmertastic 2017 collection-Frosted Orchid. I purchased my sample of ink from Vanness Pens.
Frosted Orchid is a medium purple with silver sheen.
I love that they paired the ink with silver shimmer-I don't think it would have looked nearly as good if they had used gold shimmer.
Dry time: 22 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On 20 pound copy paper the ink performed perfectly-no problems.
I used a Sailor Pro Gear Slim Blueberry, medium nib, on Tomoe River paper. The ink is a little wet, but I didn't have any flow issues.
One thing I have noticed is that the longer you write the less shimmer you get unless you rotate your pen every few lines or every paragraph.
Overall, the ink is really well behaved and it's really beautiful. I would probably use it the most in the spring.
