You lucky devil you...

I tend to do the same with my not-so-good mixes, but so far have not come close to your result.

Enjoy and gloat a little. Maybe try to report what approximately went into that 250ml...

Oh my, let me think . . . and a look at the empties  :blush:

Well, a lot of Diamine. Apologies Diamine fans. :rolleyes: 
Original Blue Black as I never got on with it and only ever used it for mixes. Same with Diamine Syrah. I'd say a fair bit of Emerald, Eclipse and Midnight as well.

R&K's Alt Bordeaux is in there too, together with Verdigris (the former's red to cancel the latter's green was often used in my search for Blue Black heaven.)
Loads of C d A Infinite Grey to dull things down (waaay to pale and green for me - bought it at 1/2 price so not too wasteful)
Visconti Blue, Blue Velvet and the mis labelled Noodler's LCR (which I think is plain old Noodlers Blue) all tend to help spice a Blue Black mix up so there's loads of them in it.

 

The Lemon Jif experiment gave me courage to make up another massive mix up. B)  B)

This time, Noodler's 54th (yep, finally lost my patience with it) my Dollar Black and the last of my Diamine Blue Black (1/3 of each was the ratio)

"$54BB" - looks surprisingly similar to Lemon Jif but nowhere near as nice to use. The 54th has done it's "magic" and glooped everything up. Great in my Noodlers Charlie pen but I won't let it near anything else.

Thanks, Believe it or not I get the message. Or some sort of message. Since I do not have most of those you mention (but I do have enough others) I will continue with my Random blue mix (also pretty dark, and I don't even remember what went in, little bits of things) with the general idea to balance reds against greens and enough blue to make a blue black... Yes, for all those mixes that I end up not using, I think they will end up in a similar random mix... for instance with those PPS clone wannabes that did not make the grade. Back to the mixing sink... New weekend project! :D

I gave up on brown mixes when I realised couldn't alchemise Parker Penman Mocha no matter what I did.

Since blue is by far my favorite color, my random mixes will mostly turn out blue.. or bluish.

Even my dregs bottle - everything I get tired of in a pen gets dumped there - has blue undertones. But since I don't easily get tired of blue, not too many end up there...

So, what is the ink?


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