Lately I’ve been thinking about sparkly inks a lot. I’m a total lover of sheen, but what about ink with actual sparkles? I’ve tried a few before and while they are super cool, it always feels a bit like cheating if you have to shake the bottle for the shine to come through lol.
Tonight I was a bit bored and decided to test the limited of tomoe river paper absorbancy and sparkles! So I shot this hour long time-lapse of Diamine Pink Glitz drying on TR paper. It is only a 20 second video, but its pretty neat to watch.
What impressed me even more was that despite the large amount of ink I put on the paper, it hardly touched the next page. Tomoe is truly magical!
I’m pretty curious to see how Emerald of Chivor will do in a test like this. What is your favorite shimmer ink? The jury is still out on that for me ^_^
I leave you now with this photo of my pen squad today.
