At Iampeth this year, in the store (Paper & Ink Arts), they sold this ink.  Their sample page showed some lovely script - black letters with gold edges. 
They said it works best on a particular paper; I think it was Strathmore cards. 
So far, I just get black - no gold. 

Has anyone used it successfully who could share their experience?

This ink is weird! I tried it at the Round Robin and it was okay (applied it thickly using brause rose, don't remember the paper), then got up and continued walking around, and Jennifer came and showed me the results after it's dried (10-15mins later), and it was SO SUPER GOLD!

So I bought a bottle but could never replicate the results since, no matter how much I shook the bottle! :(

I tried this ink again today.  I tried it on the recommended paper, and on various other papers.  I tried it stirred, shaken, rebottled.  I tried it straight and diluted, with a nib and with a brush.  I tried the silver version and the gold version.   It feels gritty & it eats a nib in what seems like minutes.

No gold or silver has appeared at all.   >:(

I think I'll go comfort myself by writing with lovely, smooth, chocolately walnut ink.
