Hi,

 

I've long considered dilution to be a no/low-cost means of fine tuning a given ink+pen+paper combo - not so much as a means to address a specific performance issue, such as bleed-through. Some times it works well, other times not at all.

 

The results of my numerous explorations of diluted inks can be found in the Ink Comparisons Forum, so with a bit of savvy searching, my atrocious written samples and observations may be at your fingertips.

 

If Ms Fussy may be so bold, she makes a differentiation between smudging (ink moved under friction) and offset (ink transerred to a stationery object [finger or facing sheet] under pressure.)

 

Bye,

S1

Sandy, I'd like to add those to our Inky Thoughts Definitions.  What do you think?


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

Hi,

 

I think those ad hoc descriptions fall short of definitions:

 

> Reference to a reliable dictionary entry is required.

> There should be some description of when such terms are applicable. e,g. When I do a Smear/Dry Time test, I use only enough pressure to emulate a soft fold on a copy/print paper, and have come to use the numeral 4 as the subject. Yet when I do a 'smudge' test, particularly for inks that exhibit the dreaded 'never truly dry' behaviour, I use white knuckle pressure plus a bit of scrubbing motion. See http://www.fountainp...amine-bilberry/  

> We should come-up with a term that describes the transfer of ink to a wet/damp surface. Instances such as, 'Why does that Golden Retriever have a Blue nose?' (Is that more likely when using scented inks?) There is a concurrent Topic on just that sort of thing, "... if your hands are wet and you touch something you've written a couple of days ago - it smears." @ http://www.fountainp...-ink/?p=3677271 Now, I am not one who reads or writes in the hamam, but on ocassion I do wear [Illegal] lipstick that transfers to others, far beyond 'Why does that Saluki have a Red spot on its forehead?'

 

Whee!

 

Bye,

S1
