I've been asking for a copper/terra cotta ink from Noodler's (preferably water resistant,) but knowing how Nathan Tardif is a one man business with a lot on his plate, I decided to make my own with his inks rather than wait. With just two, Habanero and Beaver mixed in equal parts, I was able to closely approximate Diamine's Ancient Copper. It seems stable in the vial and pens. It seems to behave well, with little feathering or bleed-through, and surprisingly, it seems to have a bit of water resistance. It's a very pretty rusty brown and a good color for drawing. The Noodler's lineup doesn't really have anything like it. The recipe is: 1 part Noodler's Habanero + 1 part Noodler's Beaver. I've dubbed it Noodler's Copper. Please note: I have no Noodler's affiliation, just a lot of their ink And no. I don't follow Nathan's politics, only my own heart.
Hi there. This is my first post and effort, so please excuse any mistakes or errors. It is on the cheapest notebook paper. Like many, I've been seduced by J. Herbin's Poussiere de Lune, but was disappointed with its lack of waterproofness. Having a selection of Noodler's bulletproof, waterproof and semi-waterproof inks on hand as well as a painter's eye, I thought, why not? Here is my first effort at trying to replicate JHPDL with 4 Noodler's inks, a sample vial and blunt tipped syringe. the recipe (ALL Noodler's): North African Violet - 30 drops (or 1/2 ml) Black Swan In Australian Roses 9 drops #41 Brown 4 drops Fox (red) 2 drops It appears to be nice and shady, nearly waterproof, and no problems with the mixture itself. All can be done with a syringe, empty sample bottle and the four colors (in sample form) I think it's pretty close. (please note: I used a Lamy Safari with a 1.1 nib, dipped, not filled) What say you?
