...this one won't scan. All I get is a very generic magenta.

I used

3 mL Shah's Rose (1:1)
5 drops #41 Brown (1:1)

I don't know why it won't scan, I don't think there's anything wrong with my scanner.

If you mix this up, you'll see why the name "antique rose' leaps to mind. It's a nice muted shade, pretty legible, should have good permanence, shades nicely, behaves well (but the brown will settle), and it's a nice color to add to your pallet if you happen to like antique-looking colors.

I like antique-looking colors, but the Mata Hari from Noodler's which was supposed to be an old rose shade, didn't show any shading, no matter what nib I used. It always looked like I wrote with a felt pen, not a fountain pen. But I loved the color.

(I have a review of the ink in here somewhere, from years ago.)

Interested to see your Antique Rose. Scanners tend to interpolate some images, so maybe that's why the swab won't scan. Maybe you can just take a photograph?
