Are Gray Inks Worth Buying?
rhymingisfun posted a topic in Inky ThoughtsI recently used a sample of Iroshizuku kiri same and I loved it, but I have to wonder, before I buy a bottle, if gray ink is worth it. Isn't it just watered down black ink? I put two drops of Noodler's Heart of Darkness and mixed it with almost 1ml of water and I got something quite similar in color, although it is missing the warmth of kiri same. Just looking for any other thoughts on this, if anyone is able to justify gray inks. Kiri same is a really nice ink, so I may buy it anyway, but I can't get that nagging feeling out of the back of my mind that I could be much more frugal and just water down my black inks. Has anyone tried watering down take sumi?
Dried Ink Flakes--Can They Be Reconstituted?
NibbyButMe posted a topic in Inky RecipesHi all, I'm a new member and I apologise if I'm posting this in the incorrect forum. Please let me know if there are other forums that would suit my question better... I have some old ink bottles with dried ink inside. I was wondering if it would be possible to dilute or reconstitute them so I could use them. I realize that the quality mightn't be great but I'd just use them for practice and doodles. My dried inks are: 1. Plastic bottle of Higgin's Black Magic Waterproof Ink. 2. Glass bottle, no label, Higgin's Drawing Ink, an encircle W and a 38 embossed on the bottom. 3. Glass Duro Art Drawing Ink, Black India Ink for pen or brush. Thanks, in advance, for any advice or help.
