Noodler's Inkmyn Sapphire - Better Than Parker Penman Sapphire


amberleadavis

Recommended Posts

I need two more inks like a hole in the head. :mellow:

 

Amber, entirely your fault. Convinced that your mix is better than mine I HAD to order a bottle of each LCR and NT.

 

Couldn't find them anywhere this side of the ocean so have bought them from ebay. Estimated arrival end of August. :(

Hopefully by then you clever souls will have worked out the correct proportions (although 1:4 looks mighty fine) and I'll have a new favourite blue.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Damn, they all look really nice. It'll take a side-by-side to see which is more nearly accurate.

So, I think the right start is 4 NT to 1 LCR.

That's the impression I got from OCArt's scans. The 4:1 ratio seemed to be the closest in color (but that also could have been because of the proximity to the original on the page).

I considered getting a bottle of LCR at DCSS this past weekend (I already have Navajo Turquoise) but it lost out to some other inks I wanted more. Well, I will put it on my short list for the next time I order ink, or see what sort of budget I have for the Ohio Pen Show....

Ruth, try another bright purple, (I'm sure you have one) with NNT, I think the trick is the NNT because it is a shader!

This would seem to take this mix in a whole new direction... How about another bright turquoise and a bright purple? Waterman perhaps?

I have gone that direction, will post tomorrow or so when I have done the comparisons with the real thing. The bright turquoise in itself does not do it for me - but adding a little bit of a darker turquoise/teal might have done the trick. I will show some of my mixes.

OK. Much mess and not a little frustration.

I've gone from 1:4 mix as recommended :huh: to what I see as the correct mix of 2:1 :wacko:

 

Thank you. Your mix is easier and more economical to make.

[ If Pure Pens here in the UK don't have the Noodler's inks you want then place an order with confidence from these guys - pensavings" Clicked to buy mine on ebay on 17th August and here I am across the Atlantic playing with them, today 22nd August. Incredible service, highly recommend them all. ]

WOW, thank you!!!

 

So, it's 2 NT and 1 LCR?

NO. 2 LCR to 1 NT !! B)

 

I know there's the chance that my Noodler's inks might be slightly different to yours due to batch discrepancies hence the shift from 1:4 to 2:1 but I measured very accurately and it's a very good colour match. I'll post the sheets to you tomorrow.

 

I may mix a batch to introduce water into the equation to perhaps add a little more shading as the hotch potch mix I concocted of Blue Velvet, Majestic Blue and water shades a little better than the Noodler's mix but that could be the pen as much as anything.

 

Thanks again Amber for helping to create a mix that's seriously close to the original PPS and for making me like blue ink in my pens again.

I can see a shootout happening between FPS (aka Love Potion) #9 and NIS.

Diamine vs Noodlers.

Whose ink will reign supreme?

Defo. Sadly I don't own Sapphire but I will send sample vials of both my mixes to Amber in the continuing quest.

 

"Dad, how come you're using blue ink now?" notices my ever observant daughter . . .

You have piqued my interest. I am going to have to do this now, which means buying more inks.

 

Oh, how you play on my obsession... I can see you there, with a smile on your face, like a cat that has just got into the cream.

Would you like me to send over the two Noodler's components thereby saving you buying whole bottles?

Thank you very much for the offer, but I think Amberlea has me sorted out already.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d
    • A Smug Dill
      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
