  1. I have recently posted a CMYK ink mixing tutorial on YouTube which may be of interest to those of you who are into your inks. With many of us in lockdown, this a great opportunity to pursue fountain pen ink investigation. For best results, use fountain pen inks that are as close to the four primary colours as possible: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. And try to use inks that are pure dyes ie not containing pigment (sludge). This is not brand specific, you can mix and match brands if you wish, just as long as the inks you choose are as near to the primary colours as possible. You can find the

    Hello From Dubai

    hi guys. just joined the "FPN" after i was looking for this pen my dad had bought back in the 90s. growing up, we used fountain pens at school. i almost always had a parker vector (which i kept on loosing) or a bunch of hero (parker 51 look alike) pens while my sister had an actual parker 51. i was going through our old boxes and came across a pen set that my dad had picked up at an expo back around 1997. it was a "pen quest 2000" all steel body ballpoint, roller ball and fountain pen. i looked it up online and it brought me to the fountain pen network where someone had posted pictures of.

    New Blackstone Cmyk Ink Mixing Set

    Blackstone CMYK Ink Mixing Sets are now available at Justwrite. Set comprises 1 x 30ml bottle of each - cyan, magenta, yellow and black. $AUD36.00 Blackstone's CMYK inks are made from pure cyan, magenta, yellow and black dyes. These pure dyes create the pure, base CMYK colours that are essential to create the full colour spectrum. They have been specifically developed to be mixed with each other to create the full CMYK colour spectrum. See Nick Stewart's review HERE.
  4. Hi, Recently, I'm playing with ink mixing using Sailor's STORiA inks. I find it really interesting, and I've got several nice results, such as a very bright orange color that almost looks like Fanta (by 1:1 mixing of "fire" red and "spotlight" yellow), a green-blue color that matches my Pilot 91 well (by 2:1 mixing of "ballon" green and "magic" purple), and a grey-ish blue (by 1:1 mixing of "ballon" green and "magic" purple)... But before yesterday, I hadn't tried to add black into the play. As I know brown is generally a dark orange, I am really curious to see if I can get some ni

    The Alchemists Reward

    I was after a sort of a red/black but the pictures of Noodler's looks a little boring and overly heavy in the black aspect when writing, so I decided to make my own. I have managed to create what I was after by mixing the following samples I had lying around (only wee tiny bits that I haven't used but would struggle to get it into a pen but it's amazing what it all adds up to). I have about 15-20ml of ink, so it's not a huge amount, but will likely keep me happy for a while. The inks I mixed are the following: Noodler's Ottoman Rose Seitz Dark Orchid Noodler's X-Feather Noodler's Park Red Nood
  6. Dear Ink Brothers, First of all, I really thank all of you for compelling me to write my story and openly declare my nerdy love for FP. I have been a “lurker” so to speak for some time now. Visiting the forums and YouTube for every possible video/review/rants of fellow FP lovers, had become a part of my daily routine. SBREbrown and Matt (Pen habit) are some of the most prominent ones out there and they have their unique style of reviewing each pen. So, don’t be surprised if my thoughts/future reviews are on those lines. I, somehow like the structure and do wish to make it my own. I pay my

    Mixing Iroshizuku & Mb Inks

    I recently bought a bottle of MB Royal Blue and while the color is brilliant on good paper (rhodia) on a variety of cheap paper and notebooks that I use the color is a bit light. So I thought about mixing in a darker blue ink to add some contrast. I have Iroshizuku shin-kai and was thinking about mixing 2 parts MBRB: 1 part Iro S-K. Is this safe to do? And has anyone done anything similar to good results?

    Curb Your Omas Blue

    I don't know whether I received a bad bottle of Omas Blue last year. All I know is that I've owned two bottles of Omas Blue, and the second one was the worst gusher imaginable. It's misleading to call the two inks by the same name. Diluting it with Waterman Florida Blue fixed it. (WFB never looked better. But I digress.) I tried a 2:1 mix, Omas over WFB, but that was pushing it. The flow was still too heavy: too much partial bleed-through with too many pens on too many papers. At 1:1, every pen/nib I owned could handle it. If this seems strange, lucky you. It means you didn't buy t

    Disastorous Ink Cocktail/combination

    Must admit, rarely do I ever attempt to mix inks. Very new to even mixing two different shade of red ink, let alone different brands. Usually, I find someone to PIF inks, which find I do not like after filling my fountain pen to sample. However, had a 10ml bottle of J. Herbin Rouge Opera. Thinking the size bottle cute and perfect for carrying a nice amount of ink on the go, decided to blend remnants of the remaining ink with others similar, but stronger colors of red which seemed nearly low. Rouge Opera, reminded me too much of Rouge Caroubier, recent PIF shared with three FPN recipients. Wel

    Night Jungle Green

    Hi Everyone, Here is the mix i use every day as an alternative to black... Green is my favorite color and every black ink i have is not black... ITS DARK GREY So, if i don't have yet a REAL BLACK, i prefer to use a DARK GREEN. In the test i use the Sheaffer Stylist M Nib. Cheers
  11. Hey guys. I'm almost through my sample of 1670 Stormy Gray, and am absolutely in love with both the base color and the glitter factor. It lead me to wondering.... are there any fine enough glitters that we could add it to bottled ink and get that kind of sheen/shine effect, without destroying pens? Imagine a lovely blue with a silver glitter, or a yellow with green... Has anyone tried? I know there's been some discussion for dip pens, but clearly J Herbin found a way to make glitter FP-friendly.....

    Im thinking about purchasing some wancher inks as they look pretty interesting. I love mixing inks for when i paint and i want to know if they are fountain pen friendly, and/or good for mixing with other inks.
