Bay State Blue is a spectacular color. I think it has fallen into the witch hunt category.

Completely agree, unfortunately.

Pardon my intrusion, but erm, ... , which color would that be?

 

A which hunt? Really? Nobody let me in on it...

But if it's true, I'm sure they are after the wrong guys. It's not the ink, or the manufacturer, they should be looking for, but for reviewers in denial - if you come across any, please, send them my way, I feel like my pound of flesh is overdue ...

 

Oh wait, did you also say there is no climate change ?! Geesh, I'm such a dope for science nincompoops, 'cause I fell for that, too...

Completely agree, unfortunately.

Yeah, double-unfortunately, as my credit card statement can show...

 

But hey, maybe some kind Samaritan would refund us - us, newbies, who rely on <<documented>>, <<exhaustive>>, and <<trustworthy>> appraisals like  Drawing61's, above. After all, they seem to be in such supply, that one can't even ask anymore, without someone jumping "foul!"

 

Including return postage, it should amount to erm... a mere synch of about $50, to name a round figure - please PM me for my Paypal details, Samaritans only. :thumbup:

Not sure it is the acidity, but rather, the chlorine content - that's my current working hypothesis, at least...

After all, sodium hypochlorite - NaClO, isn't acidic at all - it is quite alkaline.

Household bleach is even more alkaline, as it also contains sodium hydroxide - NaOH.

Yet, as I suppose you know, Noodler's recommends a 10% solution of bleach for removal of BSB stains, and it does work.

I'll know better when I test BSB on TCF paper - but even then I wouldn't be able to say with 100% certainty that it is the chlorine, as I am not an expert in paper or ink chemistry.

What I would be able to say, with 100% certainty, is whether or not I give up on BSB entirely, and forever...

 

 

Thank you that is interesting.


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

This thread reminds me of the ktc thread...

Bsb is really saturated and does lean violet. What i do is dilute it. It help the whiteness of the paper shine through and look more blue.

As far as I know, it does not, unless the paper itself has some color to it.
