Van Dieman's Night - Moonlit Lake - Shimmering Fountain Pen Ink
Shimmering Fountain Pen Ink
This color resembles the sparkling water on a lake at night with hints of reflection of rays of moonlight dappling upon it. This is a dark green-blue ink, highly saturated, creating a dark red sheen, and pigmented with a rare and unique shimmer that creates a sparkling effect which compliments rather than overshadows the primary colour and sheen.

Moonlit Lake performs very well in all nib sizes, but shows off the base blue-green colour most effectively in finer nibs, while in broader nibs it will appear much darker, almost black, with a heavier red sheen and more noticeable shimmer. Moonlit Lake also performs well on most papers, with limited feathering or bleeding, but shows off the best combination of sheen, shimmer and colour on Bloc Rhodia in a fine nib pen.
Make certain to shake the bottle well to maximize the shimmer content in your pen fill, or leave it unshaken if you want to avoid the shimmer and focus on the colour and sheen.
