I am aware from reading around that some Noodler's inks aren't made for mixing because of some components reactive producing precipitation and what not.


I am wondering if any of you has had any experience with mixing 54th with quink, pilot, sheaffer, lamy. To my experience with the 4 inks, they are all completely compatible, but I am wondering if they are harmless to mix 54th as well.. thank you!

Hi,

 

As for blending N54M with another ink, I'd likely start with something benign/washable, such as Lamy Blue or Waterman Serenity as proof of concept.

 

According to Richard Binder, the Japanese inks in general have a low pH, so vigilance would be a good thing if going on that route.

 

One may well consider other Noodler's inks, such as the semi-bulletproof Liberty's Elysium, to add a greater Blue aspect to N54M and retain much of the inks' robust properties.

 

When starting with an ink so dark as N54M I often dilute it a bit so the addition of the other ink's colour is readily apparent, so my formulae would include N54M, water and another ink.

 

Bye,

S1
