Cool. I have too many Dollar pens to use (I wanted three, I had to buy 6, then due to a mix up, got a couple more...).

Do you want a couple to play with this?

What have you filled your fountain pens(other than fountain pen ink) with, and what were the results? Good? Bad? Disastrous?

I've tried in the past:

Printer ink, diluted with some water, and it worked excellent. Dries quickly and is quite water resistant.
Calligraphy ink, started out okay then failed. Clogged up the pen after a while.
Ink from re-hydrating the core of a washable marker, works just like FP ink. Made it a bit too light though.
FP Ink mixed with methanol, works sort of. Line width increased by 3-4x, some fuzziness and dries absolutely instantly.
FP ink mixed with isopropanol, works similar to methanol.
Juice, yes fruit juice. Very light, works kinda but to light to be usable. Didn't keep it in the pen long enough for it to become sticky.
Blood, just dipped, seems to write okay for a couple words. Didn't put enough in to really know.
Plain water, plain methanol, plain household ammonia, absolutely useless as expected  :P 

PS: Don't worry, I have plenty of fountain pen ink. Variety, you know?

 

well lemon juice is invisible ink. Cheaper than buying invisiible noodlers ink

How do make it disappear after development with heat?
Noodlers is invisible unless under black light.

Blood might work well for a dip pen, but it would need an anticoagulant I suspect.


There is another bodily fluid that works vwell once it has oxidised for a few days.

I sometimes use tea and fresh coffee, both again steeped for a day or two.

Today I was gifted some squid ink. Only used with glass dip pen as it is very salty. I drew a squid. I had to.

This was bizarre-the entire apparatus reminds me of something used in the tattoo trade.

What about the ink that is made from cremated remains?  My kids joke that this is what they plan to do with me.  Wait..maybe they aren't joking?

No no, LET the blood coagulate, then take the separated blood serum and dilute with water 1:10. You'll get invisible spy ink that you can use if you're captured... by the ballpoint pen people. They'll never suspect.

You could write in pure glucose for much the same effect, no? Or spray-paint a great big "MADE YOU LOOK" on the walls to annoy the blood forensics people.

Anyone with access to an Asian market can probably get an article of pig’s blood sufficient for numerous experiments.

And if memory serves, Goya and Picasso both sketched the bullfights in the blood of the victims. The medium is called Sanguine.

My kids just wanted me to know that this can be done locally.

Oh, they're turning people into graphite. That's not too easy to put in a fountain pen. You could make people pencils however
