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.
