    I’m enjoying my Dark Lilac ink, but so far the gold sheen has eluded me. Must be the paper I’m using (Clairefontaine) – I have yet to try it on Tomoe River.

      Hi Ruth 🙂 I sometimes tweak my nibs a bit to make them write a bit wetter, which makes a pretty big difference in sheening inks! The Dark Lilac isn’t doesn’t have a TON of sheen, it’s just barely there sometimes. Clairefontaine paper is pretty good paper, and of course Tomoe River is also great, but you could maybe also try a wetter nib? I find even broad nibs aren’t necessarily wetter – it’s not as much the surface area, but how wet the line is to show the sheen. Good luck!
