As we all know, LAMY petrol ink is available on April and I love this color very very very very much. Unfortunately, i have run out of budget on buying pen stuff, so i decide to mix this petrol ink. The following is my "product". :P  :P

Please leave a comment and rate my "product" if full mark is 10. 

If any one have wonderful Petrol ink just post your writing sample on this topic!

It looks a little dark in places, but I give it a 9.8 out of 10.

I don't understand what you did!  What did you mix?  Which inks did you mix?  How much of each?  If I am missing something, please excuse. C. S.

I have mixed four kind of inks (roughly 70%blue, 25%green, 2.5% red and 2.5% black ). They are Hero brand ink. You can check the following picture.

I like it - the color is nice and it certainly suggests Pertrol, but a little too green and not dark enough, at least compared with what I'm getting in a Waterman JIF, F nib. I'd say 9.


It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

I agree that you need less green and maybe more black.

Not quite based on what I've seen of petrol, tad too green, tad not black enough, but a nice color none-the-less. Good job mixing the cheaper inks into a nice color.
