I read somewhere to mix a little white ink with the silver ink so that it is readable. If not, you may have some delivery problems. Good luck!

I always think about the postman when choosing inks, because I’m strange.

Adding white to the ink will dilute the shimmery parts, and cuts down on the reflection. If that makes it too light, you could add a hair of black.

Are you doing this with dip pens?

I have these gel pens that come in a variety of grays/blacks (and the whole rainbow!) It was this ginormous set from Target, Costco, or somewhere, and they work really well. If you get a slightly darker gray, or get one with “glitter” rather than the shimmer/metallic, it should work. Having to write over black ink will end up looking goofy, because it’s so hard to get it right both times. 🙁
