HOD is interesting.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Mixing De Atramentis Document Fuchsia with Noodler's North African Violet produces a highly staining gelatinous sludge.

Waterman havana brown and PR Avocado Green, Waterman hava brown turns dark green and becomes gunkish with age, never mix the both.

 

Waterman encre violette and MB Royale Blue, Waterman encre violette because gunkish with age and clogs pens , I had to rince intensively a pen filled with that mix because it was clogged.

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

Noodlers black and Sheaffer red.

No bad reaction but they are like oil and water. You can get them to mix mostly and if used after mixing it's a great red black but not in the traditional sense. It's like a darker red that pools black.

However after a day or so in the vial or a pen they separate out and the black sinks. Can be shaken back up but too much trouble for me.

Perhaps this is already well documented, and if so, I only hope this post can help some poor soul like me who didn't already know.

 

I have a bottle of the washed out grey variety of Pelikan 4001 Blue-Black. It is so very well behaved...and such a dreadful colour. So I decided to mix it with some Pelikan 4001 Brilliant Black.

 

Don't do it.

 

A month later, and after flushing my Lamy Studio section for a good ten minutes, it is still expelling black 'ink dandruff'. It is now soaking in a jam jar (full of water, not jam, otherwise the black particles may be strawberry pips!) and continues to cough up flakes of matter. The pen was writing well, so I think I've dodged a clog. Lesson learnt.

I'm surprised by this!!!

I haven't tried mixing any pelikan inks but the "rule of thumb" in my understanding is your best bet is mixing inks from same company/line.

That's crazy.

Thanks for the warning. I have many pelikan inks coming to play with and surely I would have ended up mixing some.

Do you know if it's just those two or is it any of the 4001 line?

I apologize everyone. It was diamine poppy red and bulletproof black. I just dug out the bottle and I wrote bulletproof poppy on it.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
