Writing Over Other Inks With Noodlers Blue Ghost


Penpalz
 Share

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a special project. For this project I need to be able to write over other writing with Noodler's Blue Ghost. I first had the Issue of the Paper fluorescing too much but found that the paper in a 199 Mnemosyne seemed to take care of that problem. The other Problem that I ran into is that any Ink I used would run when I would overwrite it, destroying the original writing and creating visible streaks with the Blue Ghost, destroying its invisibility in regular light. I bought myself some Noodler's Hunter Green and its holds up much better but sometimes still streaks. Also, because Noodler's Hunter fluoresces under black light, it overwhelms the Blue Ghost and it becomes invisible where there is too much Hunter green. Any recommendations for Inks to use for the base writing? I want to stick with a green if I can but I will try anything at this point.

Maybe try Waterman Harmonious Green. It is very well behaved and should dry on the page without problems, which I think ahould help you writing over it.

Otherwise Platinum Pigment Blue is almost 100% water resistant, probably completely in a drier pen, which means the water in Blue Ghost should not cause smearing.

Any chance of writing with Blue Ghost first?

 

I'll admit I was thinking along the same lines....

Although admittedly I've done neither.... I mostly use Blue Ghost in a password notebook. Technically I haven't even done a review of it for my records, because the UV flashlight I have is a little flaky -- there seems to be a bad connection with the batteries in it, because sometimes it works fine, and sometimes it doesn't work at ALL....

Have heard of folks saying they'd mixed the NBG with the ink they wanted to write with. Would that work? You might ask Amberlea our resident ink wizard

Tome River Paper works well.

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

These are all really great Ideas. I had tried using blue ghost first and that prevents the streaking completely but, Noodler's Hunter Green completely overwhelms blue ghost when I do that because it also glows. I tried going over it again later with more blue ghost but it doesn't seem to show up at all :( . I'm going to put through an order later today for ink samples and I'll try your recommendations Caeruleum, hopefully that will work. I'll also try and upload some pictures of some of my tests so you guys can see what I'm trying to do and what is actually happening. Thank you so much guys!

I found the biggest problem was the paper. If it won't show up on the paper it doesn't matter what you do. I've found that I can write over almost any ink with NBG so long as it shows up on the paper initially.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
