My suitemate kind of got me interested into fountain pens about a month ago.

 

So I caught the buying virus and after getting a few inks and some fountain pens in a month, I decided to spend my weekend mixing some inks together. 

 

I think my first try turned out decent right? I'd love to hear any tips and pointers for future mixing

So I took that picture on HDR mode on my Nexus 5, so it's probably not as accurate as a scan. But I can do some if people really want.

 

I'm just interested to see if this color resembles anything?

I'm not sure as I don't really have purple ink and I found this purple to be pretty satisfactory for me.

It looks like J Herbin's Larmes de Cassis ...

Redditors said it looks like Iroshizuku Yama-budo or Noodler's Purple Heart

 

But I just seared up J Herbin's Larmes de Cassis and it does seem more similar to that.
