I recommend getting ink samples from Goulet Pens of the Cd'A Storm, J.Herbin PDL, R&K Scabiosa, and Diamine Damson. Then you can have a dusky, muted purple ink festival, and compare the tones. Some are more red-violet, some more blue-violet.
P.R. Ebony Purple is in a class by itself. ( love it! )
I made my own mix of Eggplant, with Diamine Imperial Purple and Sunshine Yellow, with Parker Quink black, to get the neutralized deep purple color. I was shooting for a deeper Damson color.
