This was a mix intended to use up Noodler's #41 Brown. #41 Brown is a pleasant, well-behaved ink, but too unsaturated for daily use. This mix achieves a darker, professional, more muted color that is medium-wet, 92% bulletproof, and shades well. Incidentally the color seems to be reminiscent of Diamine's Safari/Salamander :)

 

The photo looks more accurate than the scan, although neither shows the green component well. My old scanner apparently doesn't like HP 24lb Laserjet paper.

Oooo. I don't have any 41 Brown but looking at the result I will pop another brown into your mix and have a play.

 

Thank you.

Hi Tas, you are very welcome! If you substitute a more saturated brown (and most browns should be more saturated than #41), your results may be more similar to El Lawrence. You may want to leave out the bulletproof black if you want the green to show through. This may compromise the shading a bit, though.

 

Have fun!

Using your 10:1 guidelines I took an old, failed brown mix, Brown Dreggs and mixed it with Navajo Turquoise. (no black needed)
I absolutely love it !
Thank you so much.

For reference, Brown Dreggs looks like this:

:blush:  :blush:

 

Funny that. I mixed up just 2ml of this to see what it'd look like but when I saw it on the word card, I poured all of the, until today, previously useless Brown Dreggs (40ml) and then added 4ml of NT to it.

 

I knows what I likes when I sees it  :wub: 

Shall I send you some or will you have a go at mixing yours and produce an even more gorgeous murky greeny brown . . . ?
