From the destructions:
 
I reckon this much powder will make about 150-200 ml of ink, but it is a bit hard to say for sure.  Use hot water to mix, and some glycerine certainly helps.  (1 ml ink to 60 ml water)
 
So, I mixed this with 100 ml of ink - so you have a concentrate. DO NOT USE this without diluting because it doesn't want to go into solution.  You must add some water.
 
Reminder - Adrienne already sent this to the EU members.

Phenol - You can add it to your current ink collection and 1 ml should be enough for your entire collection. 

 

Here is the breakdown:

 

 

De Atramentus, (35ml):   2 drops
Private Reserve, (old):    3 drops
Private Reserve, (new):  2 or 3 drops, (smaller bottles)
Std. 2 oz. bottle:              3 drops
Large 3 oz. bottle:           4-5 drops

 

 

After you add the drops, shake the bottle and then let it stand for a few hours or overnight.

 

If I noted that I added phenol, then I added a lot of phenol, more than enough.

Beginning with Dragon Toots Red:

Good, deep red:  similar to a "fire brick" red.  Sheen is nice.

Next up, Dragon Toots Turquoise.  GREAT.  So far, the most saturated and richest of the inks.  While it is somewhat similar to Kon-peki, I like this MUCH better.  I'd buy it in a minute.

 

The dip pens shows a lot of variation in shade --the heaviest amount of ink after dipping is deep and dark;  then the pen is almost out of ink, bright and more turquoise.  LOVE IT LONGTIME.

I should have checked to see which ink we were encouraged to dilute, and this may NOT have been one of them.  I added water, and it came out very light.  But then, it is a vintage ink, so maybe it needs to "rest" after being diluted...

And my last for today, Thistle #2.  Like it a lot!  I'd call it a "cadet blue" (like a military school uniform).  I do not normally like blue-black inks, but this one really appeals to me.  Subdued, but rich color.  Yum.

Hmm... I had a dang hard time mixing the Sterling Violet.  I tried not to grab dregs or cloggy stuff.  So perhaps you don't need to dilute.

Really nice reviews, HJB!!

Breathe.  Take one step at a time.  Don't sweat the small stuff.  You're not getting older, you are only moving through time.  Be calm and positive.

Pretty, but very thin, very undersaturated ink is "Williamsburg Blue."  It's OK, but there are plenty more richer colors than this.
