  1. Today I went to refill my Lamy 2000 with Monteverde Horizon Blue. I noticed (luckily, before dipping my pen into it!) that the ink wasn't flowing in the bottle as I swished it around. In fact, it seemed to have turned to gel! A closer inspection showed that there still was some liquid in the bottle, but the entire bottom was covered with a solid mass. I didn't get the distinctive moldy odor that I've experienced from some previous incidents, but it was definitely ruined. This ink was not in the original bottle. I had previously transferred a large amount into an old Parker Penman bottle

    DeAtramentis Dilution Liquid

    Hello I am trying to research permanent and waterproof inks for fountain pens. I am an artist and I am on a quest for the past three years to find the perfect brown to lay OVER watercolor paintings. Not ink first than watercolor. Watercolor first then ink. My goal is to match the hue of the India ink I used in rapidographs Higgins Brown. Yes I know, not to use India ink in fountain pens. Noodler’s Walnut, DeAtramentis Document Brown, Noodlers Black, Platinum Carbon Black are all too dark. I’ve given up and I’m now using Birmingham Pe

    Grey Vs Diluted Black?

    Hello, I hope I'm posting in the correct category. I'm not very experienced with ink and I'd like to try grey. I flushed one of my new Pilot pens and didn't wait for it to dry before putting in the black cartridge that came with it and I liked the resulting grey ink. My main purpose of this grey ink would be for school notes. I don't use black ink for school because it is hard to distinguish between printed text and annotations. Ideally it should be waterproof because I still haven't figured out how to drink water properly. Will a diluted Noodler's Black/HOD/X-Feather/Borealis/Polar/etc.

    Dilute For Bleeding?

    Hi All, Fountain pen newbie here with some questions on ink. I am experiencing bleeding on inks that most people do not have bleeding problems with. Specifically, Diamine Majestic Blue, De Atramentis Magenta Violet and Rohrer & Klingner Cassia. I am using a Leuchtturm 1917. I have read different articles about dilution but several ink reviews for these inks do not mention any bleeding problems. I have added a photo of the reverse side of a Majestic Blue list and a ink sample page. When I first started using Noodler's Black, I had problems with "ink transfer" (not sure if there is a t
  5. Noodler's Air Corp has long been one of my daily use inks for work. I love everything about it, except that it is just slightly too green for my taste. Then I noticed that when flushing my pens, the flushed-out waste water with diluted ink in it looks bluer. Hence, I would like to try diluting it. My question is: To what extent can Noodler's Air Corp be diluted before its behavior (flow, wetness, lubricity, tendency to bleed or feather, etc.) changes noticeably? Can I go to a 1:1 ratio of water to ink and still get good performance from it? Can I go even more dilute than that? And a side q
  6. Greetings All, I love the color and waterproofness of Noodler's La Reine Mauve, but would like to get some shading with it in a flex pen. Has anyone come up with a perfect ink:water ratio to produce a little shading with this ink? Before I experiment with this rather pricey ink, I wanted to see if someone had already done the work. Thanks!

    Tyrian Purple And Merlot

    I commented that diluted Merlot might be equivalent to Tyrian Purple so, as requested by member theinforat, here is a scan. As you can see, I was wrong. Merlot is far more brown but it is amazing how it holds up at such a dilution; doesn't flow so well, but still a strong colour. Now, I am picky about ink colours and have been looking for something around the subdued wine/purple area. Diamine Damson is good but a little too blue. Tyrian is very close but perhaps a little too red. So I tried adding a little Macassar to dull it down, went too far and added Tyrian back in. I now have an M6
  8. In most cases you can dilute an ink as much as you want with something like Noodler's Blue Ghost and still maintain a usable flow for a fountain pen. The same cannot be said for distilled water. I have a surfactant (Kodak Photo Flo) which I can use to reduce the surface tension thus making the ink wetter or flow better. I want to mix the surfactant with water to achieve a solution that could be used to dilute an ink while still maintaining good/usable flow (similar to how Blue Ghost can be used). The obvious solution is trial and error of mixing concentrations, diluting some inks, and wr

    The Color Of 12 Blacks

    I think I will drive myself crazy if I try further nail down a description of what I see in these vials. You all have probably read that blacks are usually a mix of colors so that if you dilute them you should not necessarily expect a pure gray. You maybe have even noticed this when flushing a pen and watching the dilute black in go down the drain or changing the color of the water you dipped it in. I wanted a reference to what these colors were in case so I could be mindful of them when mixing inks. I purchased a number of black samples for this purpose and this shows all blacks I thus have

    Diluted Ink To The Rescue

    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.
  12. Hi, These samples show my results from diluting Noodler's Arthur Brown Manhattan Blue with distilled water. These simple samples are viewed in the basic terms of the Ink Review performance profile, without addressing use, aesthetics and so on - the interesting stuff.

    Ink Not Flowing Properly

    I currently have a black Hero ink (pigmented) I got in China, some real cheap stuff. I figured black inks doesn't need to be too fancy and got a bottle to try out. It definitely have starting problem, this stuff is VERY black, not a hint of grey, so maybe dilution required?
