I mixed this a while ago; it's simple and it works great and comes out to be a greyish blue. The title in the photo most accurately represents the colour. It's my favourite mixture, please enjoy and let me know what you think :)

Thanks for your recipe!

 

I'd like to know how it is when compares with Pelikan blue black.

You're welcome!

 

Unfortunately I don't own that ink, but from looking at photos, it seems to have the colour of Pelikan Edelstein Tanzanite (slightly darker than Pelikan 4001 Blue-Black). This mix is a little more transparent/smooth looking however.

Oh, thank you. I am using diamine midnight blue, it is a nice dark blue, but it bleeds through the paper I am using. I may try your recipe when I manage to get a bottle of namiki blue....(:

I looked that up; it seems to have a bit stronger colour than this ink. It doesn't feather at all on my school notebooks so hopefully it won't bleed through the paper you're using. I think you'll like it :)

This is interesting, me too i'm at school, and searching for a new BB ink this would do the job well ! :wub:

 

When you talk about "parts", how much does it represents in mL ?

I guess that you use a syringe (i have a 2ml one), do you need one bottle of each ink ?

 

This is something that will fit the color of my future Parker 45, i'm intrusted in knowing more about this ;)

 

(because also pilot BB is not available in europe - Pelikan ones are too dry i guess for F nibs - Diamine are too wet)

Parts are proportions. So this could be 10 ml of blue to 2 ml black. Or 5 ml to 1 ml.

I generally online mix a small quantity. Then I can try the ink and experiment with different proportions. If you use the whole bottle, you are stuck with the mix.

Ok, thanks.

So 10/2 makes 12 ml i guess, so it is small quantities, to experiment.

 

I want to try this one, do you know what would be the cheapest way to do it ?

 

I have two options :

 

  • to buy x2 30ml bottles (do you know european e-shops that only sells them in 30ml, on ebay for the pilot shipping seems to take a while)

 

  • To find samples (do you know where it could be possible to find some ? --> here ? do you have yourself some of these ?)

 

Thank you !

I would suppose that, given the quantity of Namiki blue, this BB mix should have excellent water resistance.

Are you using Quink Washable Blue or Permanent Blue?

Or maybe quink black. 😜 Looks like a great mix. I'm going to give it a try.

All things work out in the end. If it is not working out, it is not the end.

I have mixed up a small batch of this ink, and it looks great. It now has become one of my favorite inks to use.
