Tyrian Purple And Merlot

Recommended Posts

I commented that diluted Merlot might be equivalent to Tyrian Purple so, as requested by member theinforat, here is a scan.

As you can see, I was wrong. Merlot is far more brown but it is amazing how it holds up at such a dilution; doesn't flow so well, but still a strong colour.

 

Now, I am picky about ink colours and have been looking for something around the subdued wine/purple area. Diamine Damson is good but a little too blue. Tyrian is very close but perhaps a little too red. So I tried adding a little Macassar to dull it down, went too far and added Tyrian back in. I now have an M600 filled with almost Tyrian and that looks about right but I have no clue as to the proportions.

 

Still, all good fun!
