I'm working on a special project. For this project I need to be able to write over other writing with Noodler's Blue Ghost. I first had the Issue of the Paper fluorescing too much but found that the paper in a 199 Mnemosyne seemed to take care of that problem. The other Problem that I ran into is that any Ink I used would run when I would overwrite it, destroying the original writing and creating visible streaks with the Blue Ghost, destroying its invisibility in regular light. I bought myself some Noodler's Hunter Green and its holds up much better but sometimes still streaks. Also, because Noodler's Hunter fluoresces under black light, it overwhelms the Blue Ghost and it becomes invisible where there is too much Hunter green. Any recommendations for Inks to use for the base writing? I want to stick with a green if I can but I will try anything at this point.
I love the colors of the Iroshizuku blues, but far too many times I've gotten just a single drop on the paper and it is ruined. I love Pilot Blue's water resistance, but it is too dull of a blue color...! Are there ANY other water resistant blues out there? I can judge the colors for myself, but I want more viable options. Anything I can find on here gives specific criteria the ink must meet, limiting selection, but all I'm asking for is water resistant blue. By water resistant I mean either A.) a single drop of liquid won't vanish the ink on the page B.) the i k can survive a single wet cotton swab(see photo)! Dry time was around 30 minutes... Plenty of time for the ink to settle. I swabbed a clean wet cotton once over the pilot blue ink once and nothing happened. New clean, wet cotton swab over Asa-Gao and got those ghastly results. With a new wet cotton I swabbed over the Pilot Blue 4 more times until it budged, which is slightly visible in the photo. Any suggestions or other options? Thanks guys!!
