Got this bottle for a Christmas present last december. Tops, 1/3 of the bottle has been used. Just recently (about a month ago) started noticing this really thick, slow moving ink in the bottle's bottom when I turn in upright. There are no white moldy particles floating atop the ink, and the "sludge" mixes back into the ink when the bottle is shaken. However, in a mere hour, the SITB will reform if left unbothered. I really like this ink and its qualities, but it makes me anxious to think that this could happen in my pens. I have attempted diluting samples to some avail, hoping perhaps that additional water could "sop" up any distilled dye "particulates." I want to keep using my M54, but I am fearful. Guide me, oh FPN masters. What might be done to save this ink? Is this just a bad bottle, that I should request a replacement, or is this a common occurrence?
nathanpaulo posted a topic in Inky RecipesI am aware from reading around that some Noodler's inks aren't made for mixing because of some components reactive producing precipitation and what not. I am wondering if any of you has had any experience with mixing 54th with quink, pilot, sheaffer, lamy. To my experience with the 4 inks, they are all completely compatible, but I am wondering if they are harmless to mix 54th as well.. thank you!
