Suggestion Wanted For Mixing Sherwood Green


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Like many others it seems, I'm a fan of Diamine Sherwood Green. I'd like to use it for work, but I think it's a little too light for my office (on Rhodia paper anyway). I'd quite like to darken it with a mix, possibly but not neccessarily adding a hint of blue.

Has anyone got a good mixture using this colour? Any recommendations on mix colours or ratios?

If it helps, I currently have:


- Ancient Copper

- Havasu Turquoise

- Grey

- Oynx Black

- Damson

- Bilberry

- Eclipse

- Umber

- Marine

- Majestic Blue

- Sargasso Sea

& Waterman Audacious Red

Thinking Eclipse might be a good one, but I don't want to get a muddy colour.

Have you thought of evaporating it down a little bit? Maybe a small sample to see if the color deepens and also to make sure the ink properties (dry time, etc) are still acceptable.

How about a drop or two of onyx black.

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

I was going to try this, but now I'm tempted to use Eclipse. I'll let you know how it goes when I get a chance: which could be a little while!

I think the dark violet undertone in Eclipse would turn it brown. So if I wanted to darken Sherwood Green a little I would add one drop of black. It will make a huge difference so just one drop will be enough in a vial full.
