Gives a whole different meeting to writing mom.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

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

 

I don't think that you were being helpful....  Well, maybe to Amberlea's kids, maybe.  ;)

I couldn't find any Soylent Green, but did find some Laundry Blue.

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

Heparin, and keep it refrigerated B)

I tried adding iodine to inks to make them more permanent on paper, as well as fabric dyes for inks. Not great results. I learned there is so much more to inks than just the dyes.

water during flushing. Or a 10:1 Distilled H2O:ammonia mix. And then for only very short periods.

Red wine perhaps?

 

I tried port. (A late bottled vintage)

A lovely dark, rich red in the glass - but, a very disappointing, weak, unsaturated colour on the page.

The pen flushed out alright, so I drank the rest of the bottle.

I'd think the ethanol level in port would be a threat to long term usage. That, and the remnant sugar (Regular wine ferments to between 8 and 12 % before the alcohol kills the yeast consuming the sugar; port is made by taking a wine that hasn't reached killing levels -- maybe around 4 % -- and injecting higher alcohol compound, say a brandy, to kill off the yeast and raise the alcohol load to 20 %).

Nice!

 

I hadn't taken any of that into account. It was a spur of the moment thing, rather than a plan.

But, good to know.

 

Thanks.

I only tried with water when cleaning pen and sometimes for testing the pens.

I am afraid that I might harm my pens so even I did think of trying some new material for the ink, but too scare to make it real.

My friend has tried with red wine, printer ink, and kuretake ink (he said he need to wash the pen off right away after reading some comments about brush pen ink can clog up fountain pen on internet)... some works well but some not so good.


Nice to meet you  :D If you don't mind, let's be friend on Facebook  ;)
