Brian's Top 10 Sheening Inks

After we put out the video on my top 7 favorite shading inks back in May, many of you asked us to do the same for sheening inks. You may be thinking, "what is sheen exactly"? In regards to fountain pen ink, it could be sparkles like glitter, or a shiny color that happens in the areas where ink really pools up.

Here are the 10 Sheening inks featured in this video:

J. Herbin 1670 Emerald of Chivor - (2:13)
J. Herbin 1670 Stormy Grey - (2:48)
J. Herbin 1670 Bleu Ocean - (3:23)
