Benadryl is the modern answer to Laudanum, aka Tincture of Opium. Parents used to be allowed to give children a couple of drops in a glass of water/milk and the kid would be out like a light.


Apparently it's frowned upon now, like washing your child in carbolic soap (active incredient Phenol) or feeding them dripping sandwiches*. I'm still waiting for some Grinch to ban fairy bread...




* Two slices of bread, heavily slathered with beef fat or dripping.

I'm sorry for not responding to your email. I do try to respond to every email but at times I get overwhelmed with emails and some get missed. My personal email is kevin@justwrite.com.au and this goes straight to me.


The powdered inks were extensively tested on the FPN and the testing revealed a few problems that we have yet to overcome, so we've put them on the backburner for now and we're testing ink concentrates as an alternative. We will revisit the powdered inks when we've finished testing the concentrates but if the concentrates work better we will most likely drop the powdered inks and focus on developing the concentrates.


The concentrates use completely different dyes to the powdered inks. We couldn't use the same dyes we used in the powdered inks because they didn't have a high enough solubility and were prone to clump and crystallize in concentrated form. So, they will look and behave very differently to the powdered inks. Should the concentrate concept prove superior to powders, we will look at replicating the colours and qualities of the Cashmere inks in the future but in a concentrate form, not a powder.


Please feel free to contact me at my personal email and please include your FPN name so I'll know you're from the FPN and I will do my best to respond as quickly as possible.


Thank you so much for your response. I didn't mention FPN when I emailed you and I fully understand that you can't respond to every ink lunatic who emails. Looking forward to seeing how this all pans out.

I have a precious sample of the red at 16% that I was graciously gifted. I have developed a small obsession with red ink and this is the best I have ever found. I would literally sell my 2nd born child for 100-200oz of it.

Why don't you just start making your own ink?
