Re: Has anyone tried Breathing Color Metallic?

OK I have tried their Vibrance Metallic, Gloss and Lustre.

With a pigment ink 3880 the Metallic is indistinguishable from the Gloss - except that it costs almost double.

Both the Gloss and Lustre are fine and compare well with my Harman equivalents except that they are must creamier in the base.

I used to use Ilford Smooth Pearl until I tried some Harman. I think I prefer the whiter base of Harman. Surely it is better to add some cream if you feel an image is too cool? Certainly the white base makes the colours more vibrant.

So no metallic for me whilst I am running the 3880.
