eyesa posted a topic in Inky RecipesJ. Herbin's Poussière de Lune is deservedly a much sought after ink, but sadly it slips off the page upon the first threat of water. Diamine Damson, Robert Oster's Barossa Grape and Purple Rock are also close contenders in the dusty purple range. I wanted an ink of the same hue which held its ground, which meant of course, my turning once again to Noodler's. Noodler's has many purples of varying degree of water resistance and color range. His closest purple to Poussière de Lune is his Purple Wampum (which sadly, also is not water resistant at all.)So I began with Noodler's bulletproof La Reine Mauve. It's a beautiful purple and waterproof (imparting the slightest pink haze with water), but lacks Poussière's depth, to my eye. So I set about replicating Poussière de Lune in a waterproof loo-a-like. Here are my results: Stable in vial & pen (no noticeable negative chemical reaction.) Totally waterproof. Behaves well for its level of waterproofness. the recipe: 1 ML - Noodler's La Reine Mauve + 1 ML - Noodler's Black Swan In Australian Roses (BSAR) (note: can +/- slightly to push more blue or red) + 10 drops Noodler's #41 Brown Please note: I am unaffiliated with Noodler's inks &/or Nathan's politics I just have a lot of Noodler's ink.
Hi all. Since I posted this in another thread and two other ink 'chemists' have confirmed and approved it, I thought I'd make an honest woman of myself by posting an official recipe here. I wanted a bulletproof Nightshade which is an exact copy of Noodler's Nightshade (which sadly washes away easily.) Here's the recipe and (messy) photo of my effort. It seems to be fully waterproof, leaving a bare touch of pink coloring, when run under a faucet. It seems to behave, both on paper and in a pen and is stable long term when bottled. I used ONLY Noodler's inks so as to avoid any ugly chemical problems. I know Noodler's and his Nightshade won't be on everyone's favorite list, but I liked it enough to give it a go. The recipe is: Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses (BSAR) - 1 ML. Noodler's #41 Brown - 1 ML. Noodler's Kung Te Cheng - 6 drops Noodler's Heart Of Darkness (HOD) or Bulletproof Black - 8 drops Let me know what you think and please be kind. This is my 1st attempt. (Oops! in the photo, it should be "too dry in the nib." Sheesh!)
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
