I just wanted to share this since I love pinks and purples but sometimes it is hard to find just the right light shade of pink or purple ink. I don't have an exact formula for this. It is mostly water with a few drops of DMP. I just test it in the pen and use a syringe to add another drop of ink or water as needed. If you want to try this I highly recommend starting with a very small batch. Either a sample vial or directly into the converter is what I like to do. http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/ff/94/17/ff9417c09223d961e5c487f399e59ded.jpg
I recently bought a Pilot Custom 74 with a SFM (Soft Fine Medium) nib. Great pen but a really wet writer. I tried several different kinds of inks in it but had feathering issues. I then tried Noodler's black and found it to be very saturated with plenty of nib creep on this pen. I diluted it 1:1 with distilled water and now it the pen writes perfectly and the ink is still very dark. The nib creep is also gone. Bottom line is that it pays to try ink dilution with wet writing pens.
