LOL

 

Obviously you need to be giving these folks ink sheen limitation of liability forms.

 

 

Red Cashmere at 8%

 

I love all of the Cashmere colors. I want the whole line.

Sheen, shading and Dragons with cashmere sweaters? I'm glad I wasn't the only one hallucinating :)

 

Best ink thread!

Are they both RC?

Yes, it's the exact same writing sample. Just taken at a different angle to show off sheen or not.

I finally found a dilution of RC that I :wub: (I knew it would happen eventually since I love reds). I haven't calculated the percentage yet but I mixed 2 ml of my 13.3% mix (one sachet in 30 ml of water) with 3 ml of distilled water. It turned out a gorgeous oxygenated blood red and it dries the same color. No sheen but it shades nicely, flows well (in a B, haven't tried it in a narrower nib yet) and the dry time is reasonable. I inked up a Sheaffer Holly pen (Triumph Imperial) and Christmas cards, here I come! I'll get some scans up and do the math (unless someone volunteers to drive the calculator first). Woo hoo!!

 

Now I'm inspired to start adding some glycerin to Blue C.

This is becoming a favorite of mine - just like the green. I have it in a Konrad with a B nib right now. Mixed up the sachet to fill a 50 ml Levenger bottle. (8%) Lovely sheen, especially with the B nib. Haven't noticed as much with narrower nibs. (medium is narrowest I have tried)- ok it was a Metropolitan Medium.....

MANY THANKS to Amberlea Davis, for sending me a packet of the precious powder. ;)

 

Sadly, I would never have made a good scientist or mathematician, because I have no idea what percentage of ink or water I have. All I can say is I had an empty Noodler's bottle (3 oz., right?) and started with a half bottle of water (1.5 oz.) and a packet of Red Cashmere (4 g). The ink was certainly too thick at that point, so I added water to about the ¾ level in the bottle, and I think it's pretty darn beautiful!

So 1.5 US fl oz is roughly 44 ml. 4g/44ml = 9% concentration with a half a bottle.

 

I just re-read your destructions :P - I'm guessing you had 2.25 oz *3/4 a bottle. So 66 ml of liquid. 4g/66 ml or roughly 6 % and that looks about right.

I was very excited to receive a sachet of Red Cashmere a little over a week ago and have not been able to put it down :bunny01: (Thank you Amberlea!!) I'm staying with my family for the holidays and my sister was FLIPPING out over the ink. (As a good brother I agreed to give her part of the mix of course :P) It's hands down my favorite red. I mixed it with 25ml of water, but was nervous about diluting it further because I loved the color and as Amberlea noted you can't remove the water once it's been added, so I thought it was safer to stick to 25ml. Here are a couple photos on Rhodia in a Pilot Custom 74 B Nib ground down to a smooth stub.

 

PS The ink is wet, has wonderful glide and a beautiful sheen. It is slow to dry at this concentration but I don't mind; I like watching inks dry haha

 

Edit: I should add that even at this concentration I did not have any clogging or start up issues or staining of the converter.

And I just couldn't resist - a glamor shot of the bottle that I took before I left my apt! (I think the combo of the bottle and the ink looks very vampire :) )

Damn... those bottles are really nice... Too bad I don't care much about the original ink inside. :P

 

Now.. with Red Cashmere... that bottle is really getting what it deserves... :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub:

 

 

The sheen is amazing... isn't it?? :puddle: :puddle:
