    Solv-X: Apparently It Works

    So as many of you know, I dabble in restoring pens from the 1930s and 40s. Recently I acquired a few celluloid Wearevers from the 1930s and, one by one, took each apart, right down to the nib before installing new sacs and actually writing with them. I had one pen, however, where I got lazy and decided not to knock out the nib. Instead I cleaned the section and nib in the ultrasonic with some Dawn and ammonia until there was no sign of ink and then flushed it with clear water using a bulb. When I put the pen back together it wrote quite well. Recently I loaded it with some vintage Quink w

    So, my last Truphae box had a bottle of Noodler's Borealis Black in it. Borealis Black is not really my kind of ink; it feathers a lot on the papers I mainly write on (i.e., bad paper), and it's so heavily saturated that it smears in perpetuity if I write in my 7 Seas Crossfield (Tomoe River paper) with it. I'm pretty satisfied with the selection of daily inks I have (mainly IG inks and Platinum Carbon Black), though, so I felt like it was safe to try improving it. What have I got to lose? I've been reading some old threads about ink dilution, so I got out an old empty LAMY ink bottle and p
  3. This has probably been asked before a gazillion times, but I cannot find a definite answer on FPN or elsewhere. I've got two bottles of Parker Quink ink, one black and one blue black. I think both bottles are the same, the labels have different designs and the boxes are different, too. I don't know whether this is because one is washable and the other permanent, or because of a change in the design. Are these inks washable or permanent? I've read that if they are washable the box would say so, but I'm not completely sure it's like that. Thanks!

    Quick And Bleach Mermaid

    Just as a quick breather from the ink testing I have been looking at medieval wood block prints and cobbled together a mermaid. The Quink and bleach technique really does give that hand carved feel to the illustration. What do you think? For more articles please visit: https://quinkandbleach.wordpress.com
  5. I think I've been using Pelikan 4001 Royal Blue for 99% of the time I write with fountain pens. It's cheap here, easily available for a long time and I like it. But I'm in the mood recently for some black ink as well. I've seen that Noodler's Heart of Darksness and Bulletproof are highly praised here as being the blackest of them all, but I can't find it locally and ordering it would cost me five times more than my regular Pelikan ink. I don't think it's simply worth it, with that money I can buy a new pen (or save for a really nice one). However, at a shop near me, I've found Pelikan 4001 b
  6. So much from so little! Quink black freeform blend onto 300gsm Saunders watercolour paper with bleach and ink illustration and lettering. Using lyrics by Depeche Mode this is a wonderfully self indulgent journey into the dark side. Seven pieces in total for the seven angels in the book of Revelation. I know that I posted 3 of these some time ago, but sometimes a reminder of the versatility of Quink is no bad thing – so here is the full line up. The breakdown with water into blacks, greys, blues and ochres is just fabulous. Add the bleach – with the golds and neons – and it really is special.
  7. Hi guys, I bought a few bottles of Parker Quink from an indian seller at ebay. He claims that the product is genuine, but I'm not so sure. The package box is poorly printed, the holografic seal is a "printed version" instead of glued on the box, something I've never seen before. Some of the bottles are bend, somewhat deformed and the ink is very watered. The seller says that the ink is produced localy under Parker license by LUXOR INC. Does anyone knows this company or ever used this ink? Is this original product or just a fake? Thanks. Cheers

    Ink Help :)

    Hello poeple, I have been a passionate user of ink pens since past 10 years. Even now, after I have graduated I still use ink pen for all my writing needs. In my childhood there was never a complain of ink clogging problems since we only had availability of 1 - 2 brands of ink and the pens we used to be in a normal price range. Off late after I brought a Mont Blanc Midnight blue (Blue - Black) which is a permanent ink, which is not mentioned on the box, I had started using it and it clogged my sheaffer prelude badly, which I have now given for repairing but my Parker 45 survived it. After
