Ink Mix Rambling, Not For The Feint Of Heart . . .

My remnant mixes always turn out an oily greenish brown :(

 

Not unlike the color you see on the stretches of ground down by the river that also happens to be visited by a large amount of ducks and/or geese.

Dont be put off. This mix had its fair share of greenish browns thrown in.

I'm not trying to be perverse (it comes naturally) but oily greenish brown sounds like something I'd find appealing.

LoL!

Reminds me of the first review I saw of Noodler's El Lawrence. Not a color I would have gone out of my way for -- but I kept staring at the images in the review, muttering "That is some weird-ass color" under my breath. It was kinda like a car accident, where you just somehow *cannot* look away. So I got a sample and loved the color. Go figure....

Ooo, I like doing this B).

I followed Mad Science's example - only I didn't wear a lab coat and ink went all over the desk leaving pink stains.

I see plenty of Diamine Syrah in there. I often add this to blue up greeny blue-black mixes.
I see a lot of Navajo Turquoise and LCR from my many attempts at recreating Amberleadavis' PPS.
I see a goodly amount of R&K's Helianthus which I often use to warm things up a little.
Noodler's Black is a given. I often add this for permanence in a mix.
The rest, well, who knows :mellow: :unsure:.

Lovely color, Tas! Unfortunately, if it becomes a hit, it will be almost impossible to reproduce. A new "Unobtanium" ink. :wub:

 

All the Best.

That looks like a lovely color, I'd love to try it out, hope I'm not too late? Will you send a sample to Curaçao?

What you do with failed mixes and unsatisfactory purchases sounds a lot like what I'll do with my "Dregs" bottle... and it may well be that what you have there may resemble what's in one of mine...

PM me you details. It would be my pleasure.

 

Like you, I had one bottle and called it blue dregs . . . that ended up becoming part of Teeling Mix. I just had enough one day. I am cutting back. Honest.

This is really cool ! And the resulting ink looks fabulous.

I switch inks regularly, and often have some drops left over in my pens. From now on, these leftovers will go in a mixing jar, instead of down the drain. I'm not hoping for as lovely a result as you got, but who knows ... maybe I'll get lucky ;-)

At the very least, it'll be dark and readable. I think I like the surprises just as much as those colors I agonize over before buying.

Drop me a line, I'll sling you a sample vial full. It's slate gray right now, but I've a bunch of Monteverde Horizon going in later from a pen that needs flushed.

I love the stickman!~

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

      @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
    • A Smug Dill
      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.
