Some little time ago, FPN member extraodinaire Amberleadavis mixed some Noodler's Navajo Turquoise with some Noodler's La Couleur Royale in a converter, and serendipitously it was a good replicant of the fabled Parker Penman Sapphire. Amber thought the ratio was about 1:1. So, people tried to nail down her mix to an exact ratio. However it was complicated by the fact that there are at least three different batches of LCR out there -- the original Purply batch, a Blue batch with red/purple overtones, and at least a few bottles of mislabelled Noodler's Blue. So, I ordered a bottle of LCR from the fanatically nice people at Goulet Pens, asking them to make sure that my bottle was in the Purply range. It arrived, in one of Nathan's new round plastic bottles, so I knew it was from the latest batch, and it was Purply. Ok, so having a brand new bottle of La Couleur Royale from a batch of the appropriately Royal Purple, I decided to nail down a mix for Amber's Noodler's Inkyman Sapphire. If you have a bottle of the Royal Purple LCR, then the mix is 2 parts of Noodler's Navajo Turquoise and 1 part of Royal Purple La Couleur Royale, as below Note, if you have a bottle of the slightly bluey purple LCR, then the ratio will be different, probably closer to 1:1, rather than 2:1, but it will be for others, who have a bottle of that batch, to confirm. For those of you who, like myself and and FPNer Tas, have a bottle of LCR which really seems to be a mislabelled bottle of Noodler's Blue, no mixing of NB and NNT will turn it into NIS. Just enjoy the bottle of Noodler's Blue, because it is a really nice ink in it's own right.
Ok, I know that I said some time ago that I wouldn't be making any more replicants of Parker Penman Sapphire after FPS #9 Then I got involved with Amberleadavis in this thread - https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/293633-the-super-duper-co-razy-parker-penman-sapphire-blue-comparisons-psp/ That woke up my interest in PPS replicants, soon followed by NIS, Noodler's Inkyman Sapphire. More recently I was having a close look at Iroshizuku's Asa-Gao, and having received a 15 ml bottle of Kon-Peki, decided to have another go. The result is Faux Penman Sapphire #10 Recipe 1 part Iroshizuku Kon-Peki 3 parts Iroshizuku Asa-Gao 0.1 part (or less) Iroshizuku Take-Sumi Results Colour - Correct Sheen - Same as PPS Feathering - None Shading - Same as PPS Bleeding - Same as PPS I am not that happy with the scan. It real life the colours are much closer.
