Ink Color On The Marauder's Map In Harry Potter Movie


FountainPensAndCoffee

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of an ink that would resemble most closely the ink that was used on the Marauder's Map in the Harry Potter movie? I really liked the color but there are so many different reds and browns out there. I'm trying to find an ink that would fit more closely to the color used on the map.

I love the Marauder's Map. Any deep reddish brown would do well. KWZ IG Red from my samples looks a fair match. J Herbin Caroube de Chypre base tone is similar (you'll have to deal with the sparkle).

I have an older bottle of a brown ink by Monte Blanc that was a limited Christmas ink of Joy some years back that is a bit darker, but a very nice brown color. Maybe try their brown ink. See if you can find a sample somewhere to try it!

I think the new J Herbin metallic brown would be a good fit.

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

I have a "thing" for sepia color ink. I have found Noodler's Beaver Brown very easy to live with.

If you can deal with its incredibly strange nature, Noodler's Whaleman's sepia might work.

 

Maybe use a dip pen with it though. Who knows.

If you could find it, Levenger Pommegranate.

Yeah, I still think this would be on the Maurder's map with a little ghost blue. Image from

The large retailer online named after a huge river shows they have Levenger in carts still, but a 1 month ship time. Just FYI.

Sometimes the color of the paper can affect a greatly in the result, so maybe an ivory paper with Diamine Oxblood?

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
