Great Ink

I love the pigmentation of this ink. I just love Ferris Wheel Press inks in general.

Stroke of Midnight

This particular ink has been elusive for quite some time now but I am overjoyed it is finally part of my collection. It was one of the first inks I wanted from Ferris Wheel Press.

Favorite ink

This ink is currently my favorite from FWP. The glitter is very rich and present. Maybe i'll write my next masterpiece with it!

Regular looking blue

A beautiful blue, but there appears to be no red sheen, and very little glitter. I've filled up my Carousel multiple times with the ink, and written a lot with it, but it comes out as a regular navy blue with no other features, and that is somewhat disappointing.

The ink otherwise writes beautifully - saturated, with a smooth flow, qualities I've come to expect from Ferris Wheel Press inks. Beautiful packaging and bottle as always.

Brilliant Ink!

I love this ink! I tend to write with plain black ink but it’s wonderful to have a shade that adds some excitement while still being practical. So pretty!!

Beautiful ink that shipped and arrived very quickly, even though it was ordered during a sale in December I received the ink in about 4 days. Very nicely packaged, beautiful ink. I haven't bought a shimmer ink before this one, so there was a bit of a learning curve in learning to shake the bottle before filling, and shake the pen a bit before writing so the shimmer comes out. The color is just beautiful. Writing on a cream paper it looks just about perfectly black until the light hits it.
