I've been asking for a copper/terra cotta ink from Noodler's (preferably water resistant,) but knowing how Nathan Tardif is a one man business with a lot on his plate, I decided to make my own with his inks rather than wait. With just two, Habanero and Beaver mixed in equal parts, I was able to closely approximate Diamine's Ancient Copper. It seems stable in the vial and pens. It seems to behave well, with little feathering or bleed-through, and surprisingly, it seems to have a bit of water resistance. It's a very pretty rusty brown and a good color for drawing. The Noodler's lineup doesn't really have anything like it.

The recipe is:

1 part Noodler's Habanero + 1 part Noodler's Beaver.

I've dubbed it Noodler's Copper.

Please note: I have no Noodler's affiliation, just a lot of their ink

And no. I don't follow Nathan's politics, only my own heart.

Interesting. Does your mix have the same bits of hardened bits of ink on the nib (more than nib creep, it's actually a solid clump)? Although benign, I have seen complaints about the behavior.

Dear Ruth,

Haha... if you mean the crustiness of Ancient Copper, no it does not.

Now, I've not seen that problem with Beaver or Habanero, so I'm guessing you're referring to the Ancient Copper.

There is shading from the mix, but it may not be to the extent of AC, and I don't see the purported sheening. But I definitely have seen no 'clumps' in the Noodler's mix. I only have a sample vial of Ancient Copper and have had it for two years (having put it aside for being too fugitive.) The vial too seems free of crust. So maybe I've been lucky :)

For what is worth, I mixed Ancient Copper with Polar Brown 1:1.
It's water resistant, has a nice shading, I call it Polar Rust :D.
