That is gorgeous. Now, for a matching ink...

:lol:  The new Sailor Mouseyo ink! ;)   :P

 
Does anyone have any suggestion for a mix that would yield a shading grey with minimal pink sheen?
 
I have a few (mainly Diamine and Pilot iroshizuku) grey inks here, but I wouldn't know where to begin.


As always:  1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment.  2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published.  3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.

Not a mix, but a grey ink with a pinkish sheen is Diamine graphite.

Another one I can think of off the top of my head is Iroshizuku Fuyu-Syogen (it is very drippy, unfortunately, but as a result I ended up with some inadvertent chromatography tests -- and there's a definite pink edge to some of those grey drips...).

Some images of Sailor 123 and Sailor 224 suggest to me that, on the right paper, they might be grey with a pinkish sheen.
