"Abigail Rose" or "Dead Roses"

 

Noodlers Fox Red and Bulletproof Black 10:1

 

I've named my Fox Red/Black combination 'Abigail Rose,' after my sister-in-law who fancies herself a Gothic poet. It is a very brooding, angstful color. I feel like I'm writing with bottled hate. Try it next time you correspond with your ex-wife/landlord/mother-in-law. I might also suggest the name 'Dead Roses' for those of you who haven't had the pleasure of meeting my sister-in-law.

 

Plus, like all good hatred, it's Eternal!

 

Cheers,

 

Will

I've been doing some mixing as I've not yet found that "perfect" ink.

 

1 part Noodler's Polar Blue with 1 part Noodler's Lexington Gray creates a very nice powdery, ethereal blue.

 

I've also mixed a good "dried blood" which contains some Noodler's Tienanmen Red, some Caran d'ache Grand Canyon brown and an accidental tiny bit of Noodler's Aircorps Blue-Black. I just kind of threw it all together so I have no idea what the proportions are, unfortunately.

 

I can scan pictures of the latter if anyone is interested.

Patrick Hand -

Are you still searching for a dried blood color ?

I always thought that was the same as maroon.

 

Mixing burgundy and black doesn't work ?...or burgundy, brown, and black ?

 

I think I'd like to use a bright Orange ink for Halloween.

While I wasn't trying to get a "blood-red", just wanted something darker than Noodlers' Nikita, looks like I've stumbled upon a "Blood Red" color anyway.

Just messing around, I came across an unmeasured blend that even has "blood-like" qualities, right down to the way blood separates on tissue/paper towels.

 

Included are the proportions of each ink used, using an empty Standard ink cartridge as a reference.

Looking at an ink-drop of this blend on the paper towel, it looks just like dried blood to my eyes...

This wasn't what I had in mind to create at all, just worked out this way.

When I added more Hod the color turns more of a brown than a red/black, so I only added a few drops HoD for these results.

Doing a wash-test the 100% pure Nikita almost completely washed away with hot water alone, completely gone after using bleach.

Adding the HoD not only gave it a darker red color but also gives it some "bulletproof" qualities, in that the black will NOT wash out, not even with pure Clorox bleach...

You can even see where the bleach washed out the Ivory coloring of the Premium 25% LaserJet cotton paper.

Even swabbing with Dawn dishwashing liquid removed some of the Ivory colorant from the paper but not the HoD.

There's a white line where the paper was bleached out but the HoD remained behind.

I wasn't sure I liked the color at first but it's beginning to grow on me and has some beautiful shading to it at well.

They flow across paper as a brush to canvas, transforming my thoughts into words and my words into art.

This is my find. More red/black.

It was 9 parts diamine poppy red and 2 parts noodlers black.

Can be adjusted to taste. Was thinking of trying fox red and bulletproof black next so its fully eternal.

Diamine Monaco Red is also pretty close to blood, if from a wet nib,

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
