I live in Hyderabad, India. Bril Royal Blue is available in a few stores, but mostly the date of manufacture is 2009 or 2010. Is it safe to use it in Indian ebonites (ASA, Gem, Deccan) ?. I have used a batch manufactured in 2009 in ASA Athlete, ASA I Can and the Gama Raja, did not have any issues, but I am wondering if they will cause any long term damage (corrosion of feed, clogging channels, harm the ebonite).

 

Has anyone faced any such issues with Bril's Royal Blue ink?

 

I ask the store owners if they can pull out some new stock, but in most cases either they don't have it or they give the usual .. "Bril is no more, stock isn't coming through"... which cant be true as I still get latest batches when I visit Bangalore.

 

Thanks

Rakshit

I feel there should be no problem. I am using quite old bottles of ink myself. Just invert the bottles (with the cap on, of course) once in a while and check if the ink is dropping sediments. Throw the bottle with sediments otherwise the ink should be fine for a long time.

 

BTW, why are you bothering with old stock in Hyderabad when you have access to the new stocks in Bangalore?

Thanks for clearing that up Hari. The last time I visited Bangalore, I got only a bottle or two thinking that it would be available in Hyderabad. But you are right, I will stock up the next time I visit Bangalore. I go there at least thrice a year, I should be able to get enough stock each time.

 

I'd think that checking for sediments the way you described would also hold good for Quink, Chelpark and Camlin inks as well..

not in my experience with steel nibs, but it is possible I never left a pen unflushed. Even Chelpark Blue-Black in those days was Ferrogallic.

Anyone with experience mixing ink colors (to get blue black, for instance) or is that taboo?

 

I've mixed some black into a blue ink ED pen inadvertently when I decided it needed topping up. The result was a most unappealing shade of gray, but I'm sure more experiments with blue as the majority component can yield a good blue black.

 

Or are the essential particles in the blue and black suspensions fundamentally too different to properly mix? Is blue black ink made with a single uniform particulate that gives it that prized hue?

I often mix Bril Black and Bril Red in the ratio 1:1 and have got a beautiful shade of brown. Never had issues with mixing inks.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
