Peterhenry posted a topic in Inky ThoughtsAll, Could anyone be kind enough to put me out of my misery concerning something that might be mould (or perhaps isn't) in my bottle of ink. I haven't seen any growth on my pen, but I did refill an old bellows pen for a relative from the bottle in question about four or five days ago. I'm not yet loosing sleep over it, but it is haunting my dreams. Eternal thanks, Peter
possibly a bit ambitious with that name! This is a mix made from an unknown proportion (probably about 3+:1 though, mixed it by eye/feel in the pen itself when drawing the ink up) of Waterman's Purple and Cross Black (rebranded Pelikan, according to the internet) It seems to be a dark purple, with some (a lot? not a lot? i have no clue! tell me about it) shading here are some images (click for hi res) All done with a Nooder's Creaper, with a cameo from a Pilot Parallel, my ackermann pump pen has been slightly stolen by a close friend for now I don't think the proportion actually matters that much, since there is a pretty wildly different one in the Parallel than the Creaper but it seems to have the pretty much the same colour and response paper was from 80gsm cheap staples notebook thing aman x
