Today's ink is Diamine Lilac Satin, from the 2016 Shimmertastic Collection. I purchased my sample of ink from Vanness Pens.
Lilac Satin is a beautiful light purple. When wet it looks more red-violet, but dries more of a blue-violet. It's a great spring color.
There's just a little bit of gold sheen on the edges. The sheen is not visible in writing.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On 20 pound copy paper the ink performed well, no issues that I noticed.
I used a medium Pelikan M605 White Transparent on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow. I really liked this pen/ink combo. I didn't have any flow issues, the shimmer does drop out of suspension after a few lines, but doesn't disappear completely. Just rotate the pen a few times to keep it in suspension.
Overall, I love the color of this ink. It's pretty well behaved for a shimmer ink, and has a decent dry time. I'm putting a bottle on my wish list.
