We interrupt our scheduled weekly ink review schedule to introduce a new brand and a new product that has us a little giddy. Let’s get to know Wearingeul, Wearingeul inks, and then dive right into a Wearingeul Glitter Potion review. (Because we think you’re going to find this particular Wearingeul product distracting in its amazingness).
All About the Ink Maker: Wearingeul
Wearingeul is a Korean ink company we just added to the shop this past week. We picked up 9 different Wearingeul Literary Collections, including 1 specialty product listed as a fountain pen ink that isn’t actually an ink (Glitter Potion – we’ll dive into this more here in a bit), and 2 fountain pen ink sets that we can’t talk about without nerding out. Wearingeul inks are inspired by great writers and literary works of art. i

This week’s featured ink isn’t actually an ink at all. Instead, we’re going to take a look at Wearingeul’s Glitter Potion, a particularly intriguing addition to their L. Frank Baum-inspired The Wizard of Oz Literary Collection inks.
All About The Ink Series: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Literary Collection
The Wearingeul Glitter Potions are part of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Literary Collection recently added to the Pen Chalet inventory.
The Wearingeul The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Literature Collection includes 4 different 30ml shading ink colors: Dorothy, Tin Woodsman, Scarecrow, and Cowardly Lion, along with a set of Glitter Potions: Silver Shoes, Heart, Brains, and Brave. Each ink is inspired by one of L. Frank Baum’s well-known literary characters, and each Glitter Potion is inspired by the item they sought from the Great and Wonderful Wizard of Oz in the famous tale. Experience the foursome’s quest down the yellow brick road all over again in a whole new way with the Wearingeul Literary Collection.
Today we’ll take a look at the Wearingeul Wizard of Oz Literary Collection Heart Glitter Potion and how it changes the look of the Tin Woodsman fountain pen ink.
All About This Week’s Feature: Wearingeul Heart Glitter Potion
This week we’ll be checking out the Wearingeul Heart Glitter Potion, and to do so, we’ll be using some of it to alter the Tin Woodsman fountain pen ink from the same Literary Ink Collection.

It’s Time: Wearingeul Glitter Potion Review
For this Wearingeul Glitter Potion review, we put the potion to the test to see if it could really change a non-glistening ink into a glistening ink. See how it went!
Ink Review Testing Factors (to keep things scientific):
As usual, we used a French-made J. Herbin spiral glass dip pen (with a tip comparable to a medium-fine fountain pen nib) on Clairefontaine Trimphe paper. As always, we want to remind you that different papers or different nib sizes may produce different results!
What Sort of Ink Bottle Does Wearingeul Use?
Wearingeul Glitter Potion comes in a 10ml glass ink bottle. The small bottle is clearly labeled with the brand name, the ink series, the designation of the product time (glitter potion), and the amount included in the bottle (10ml). The bottle is clear to offer a very obvious view of the color of the potion you’ll be adding to your ink. The Glitter Potion ink bottles have a silver colored crew top lid, come with the cap plastic-wrapped, and the bottle bubble wrapped inside a simple, white cardboard box that also exhibits clear labeling. The Wearingeul packaging is simple, clear, pleasing to look at and effective at protecting your inks until you get them safely unpacked and in use.
How Much Do Wearingeul Glitter Potions Cost?
Wearingeul glitter potions are an affordable extra to add to your pen and ink collection. Look for the best prices at PenChalet.com.
How to Use Wearingeul Glitter Potion Inks to Turn Non-Shimmering Inks into Shimmering Inks:
The of the Wearingeul glitter potion is to turn any non-glistening ink into a glistening ink. If you’re working with 30ml inks, and following Wearingeul’s recommended ratio of glitter potion to target ink of 1:10, you should be able to use one bottle of Glitter Potion to transform 3 different bottles of ink.
How to Use Wearingeul Glitter Potion:
Step 1: Shake the glitter potion to disperse the shimmer throughout.
Step 2: Add the Glitter Potion to the original bottle of non-glistening ink. (In an amount equal to 1/10 the amount of the original ink. It’s typically easiest to do this with an eyedropper).
Step 3: Shake the ink gently to mix in the Glitter Potion.
Does Wearingeul Glitter Potion Allow Inks to Exhibit Good Shading / Shimmering Traits?
We tried out Wearingeul’s Heart Glitter Potion with the Wearingeul Tin Woodsman ink. The Wearingeul Literary Collection Wizard of Oz inks are 30 ml. We didn’t want to overfill the bottle, so we removed 10ml of ink (and saved it in an ink vial for later use), and then added 2ml of Glitter Potion to the remaining 20ml of fountain pen ink (following the recommended 1:10 Glitter:Ink ration). You can see in the video of the swatches that the original Tin Woodsman ink (on the right) shows great shading traits. The second ink swatch (on the left) is Tin Woodsman with the Heart Glitter Potion added, and it continues to show good shading traits as well as clearly exhibiting the rose gold sheen from the added Heart Glitter Potion.
Final Conclusion on Wearingeul Heart Glitter Potion:
After trying out the Wearingeul Glitter Potion, we are really excited about the possibilities it offers. We can’t wait to keep experimenting with this fun additive. For this first experiment, we used an ink syringe to add the potion to the ink. Next time we plan to try using an eyedropper to see if the results are any different. We feel like this is a fairly affordable price for such a fun additive – particularly since it is coming all the way from Korea, has great packaging, and a solid brand that also brings a fabulous story to life. The inspiration behind the inks is L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and they really bring the story to life with the ability to play the wizard with the inks and glitter potions in this collection. In addition, they even offer a fountain pen ink set called the Wonderful Wizard of Oz Spell Book that gives you everything you need to decide if you want to help or sabotage the yellow brick road travelers, and make it happen. Just one of many of the inks recently added by this exciting brand that brings literature from around the world to life, we have a feeling The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Literary Collection is going to be a hit with pen and ink fans around here. Happy writing from Korea!
