Right so I was looking through my drawer one day and found a bottle of Sheaffer Red, Black, Royal Blue and Brown. 

 

I thought I should attempt at making something like Diamine Oxblood from these inks. It turned out AMAZING. The ink shades beautifully and the colour is way too good. Hope you'll enjoy :)

Right.

 

So the ink is very smooth and it writes beautifully. 

 

 

It's got a good dry time and shades well as well, you can zoom in on the uploaded photo if you like.

 

So overall, these are the scores I'd give it:

 

Smoothness: 4/5

 

Wetness: 4/5

 

Shading: 5/5

 

Drying time: 3/5

 

That gives us 18/20, which is quite respectable IMO.

 

 

Attaching the file so you can download it if you want to.

Looks more like a wine colored ink (Syrah?) rather than an Oxblood clone

Maybe due to scanning?

 

I have a bottle of Oxblood and they look very similar, it's quite uncanny.

Sorry about that. I don't remember it/didn't really use one, I just keep on adding whichever colour until I reached the desired shade. When I mix up another batch, I'll use a ratio.
