Ldv Red Chalk (After Montblanc)

Recommended Posts

Two parts each of the following;


  • Platinum Pigment Rose Red
  • Organics Studio Mercury

to one part


  • Sailor Four Seasons Oku-Yama


The ink is stable but use of pigment requires more frequent and careful cleaning of pen parts - use at own risk.

I consider this to be a closer idea of Da Vinci's ink and is more red than the Montblanc original; however, if a closer match to Montblanc's still beautiful ink is required, one might try adding a half part of Diamine Sunset.

Interesting, thank you.

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

This is an interesting recipe.  I actually prefer just the combination of Platinum Pigment Rose Red and Organics Studio Mercury.  It seems the Mercury has been discontinued.  Is there some other ink that could be substituted and achieve a similar result?

Is there anything else to consider when matching up an ink to mix like this?  Is saturation an issue, or do I just find something similar-looking?

Just make it to the color you like. It doesn't have to be 100% exact. As a personal preference I would never mix pigment inks with regular dye inks so I would need to find something other than the Platinum Pigment Rose Red that was similar looking.

Sorry, I didn't specify my interest in this recipe.  I'm looking for a water-resistant red ink which has a pleasing color.  I find Platinum Pigment Ink Rose Red too pinky, so I'm looking for some way to change it.

It became confused because this old thread is about making an ink that looks like Montblanc LDV Red Chalk. It happened to contain PP Rose Red. Now you've posted your own thread about what you are looking to find maybe you will get an option that works for you. :)

      @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

      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.
