Purely THEORETICAL, but here are the rules:

 

1. Limited to 10 bottles MAX.

2. Can be any combination of ink and bottles as long as it pertains to rule #1.

3. DO NOT PANIC... this is not real.

 

If you had to take or save only 10 bottles of ink, what would they be? These are the inks that you absolutely cannot live without and need to be pried from your cold, inky fingers. You can choose to take 10 bottles of the same ink or you can have 2 bottles of one ink and 3 bottles of another so long as the final result adds up to 10 bottles total. You may also opt to take one bottle of several different inks. Whatever the choice, let us know.

Well, first of all, I am CMYK-ing my way out of this mess! Ten colors would never be enough!

1. Noodler's Navajo Turquoise
2. Noodler's Shah's Rose
3. Noodler's Yellow
4. Noodler's Polar Black (I like my inks slick, ok?)

Then I have to have one basic ink that "normal" people would use.

5. J. Herbin Éclat de Saphir. The gigantic bottle, of course.

Then I need some fun stuff.

6. J. Herbin Emerald of Chivor
7. Noodler's Apache Sunset

But now I only have three spots left for favorites! noooooooooo......

8. DeAtramentis Mahatma Gandhi. It's aggressively cheerful. Necessary for most Novembers.
9. Organics Studio Emily Dickinson Posie Pink. Knocks off socks regularly.
10. Noodler's Dragon Catfish Pink. For all my permanent highlighting needs. But, oh, it was tough to pass up on Dragon's Napalm. And Year of the Golden Pig.

If this scenario were real, I have learned that I'd be mixing all my favorite greens.

4 x Noodler's Black. Just like a little black dress*, it goes with anything

3 x Diamine Majestic Blue

3 x Diamine Sapphire Blue. These last two will give me 12 x bottles Faux Penman Sapphire #9 because the blend is half water.

 

And, because it's not a bottle, 1 x tiny sachet of Thistle Blue Black ink powder to give me 1 quart of fine dippin' ink.

 

 

 

*except with 3 days growth of beard and sneakers.

Can it be any size bottle?  I.e., can I count the several bottles of vintage Quink Violet and vintage Skrip Peacock as "one" bottle?  Because I decanted them into smaller bottles for purposes of easy access....

Yep as long as the bottle size is a real volume. None of this 55 gallon drum sized make believe stuff!

10 bottles? I dont have 10 bottles, more like 4 and a few ancient dregs. I do not feel compelled to get more since they work and will be ages until I use them up. I dont want to get too complicated.
