Deep Purple Shimmer

I just love the shimmer of J.Herbin's 1670 so much, that I have decided to try mixing it with various inks and see what I get. Here's my first go round!

Interesting mix.

What made you choose that particular combination?

very nice! how much of each did you put in?

 

According to the writing sample there's 2/3(?) of J. Herbin and 1/3(?) Asa Gao with 2 drops of Diamine Eclipse. Maybe it's 2/3 of a drop of JH and 1/3 of a drop of AG? Unfortunately, my fractional dropper is not working so I can't try.

1 x JH

2x Asa Gao

6 x Eclipse

 

I will try it on my multiplication dropper as soon as I get some Asa Gao ;)

I like that very much, and am quite frankly surprised. I have found 1670 to be a finicky ink that does not play well with others. Just a little contamination of certain other inks on the feed has been enough to render 1670 quite ugly. But this is a beautiful deep plum with lovely sheen and shading.

Let me clear this up! I was using a converter for measuring, the converter I was ultimately going to fill with the mixed ink.

 

So, it is 2/3 a converter of 1670, then I dumped that into a small plastic cup. I rinsed the converter. Then I got 1/3 the converter of Asa-GAO, and dropped that into the same small plastic cup. Then I used a syringe to put literally two tiny drops of Eclipse also into the cup. I mixed it in the cup and then sucked it up with the converter.

 

Sorry guys! It was my first recipe. In the future I will figure out a way to be more precise!

Thank you for the clarification! I'm DYING to try this out as well as some similar stuff while i'm waiting for samples of asa-gao and eclipse to arrive. Thanks so much! (Love your album btw)

I did not know you had taken to mixing inks and making originals. You'd think there would be mixing kits and of course like in the WWII timeframe ink was sold as a pellet that you'd mix with water. Where can a person find ink tablets?

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
