Edelstein Topaz, But Darker

Recommended Posts

Picky me would like a slightly darker Edelstein Topaz. What do we think about adding a drop or two of Tanzanite? In 5ml sample vials, of course.

I don't have either at present. If it's viable I'll get a bottle of Topaz and a sample of Tanzanite.

 

Thank you for your input.

Hi Karmachanic,

 

I'm guessing the Tanzanite will bring grey with it.

 

Noodler's Navajo Turquoise is that blue but darker. It's a good ink.

 

I've used Topaz and Pelikan 4001 Turquoise. They are extremely close in color but the 4001 Turquoise to me is just a very little bit darker but probably not enough to make a difference.

 

Try a sample of Noodler's Navajo Turquoise. You might like it.

I think of Navajo Turquoise as being a bit more greenish (well, at least my bottle of it is :rolleyes:) than Topaz. But I like both.

ETA: How much darker do you want. Karmachanic? KWZI IG Turquoise is really dark....

I've been looking at the KWZ IG as well and may get a bottle at some point.

 

Looking at Sandy1's review I see fabulous shading with the Edelstein, so I'm interested in having that, but would like the ink to be not so bright. A bit darker, whilst maintaining the characteristics. I agree that the Noodler's is greener and prefer Edelstein for its colour. As well as it being a drier ink, which is why I figure I should stick to an Edelstein to mix. Either Tanzanite or Onyx.

 

I have no experience mixing inks. For the next four months my stationery budget is next to zero, so I'm trying to be careful with expenditure.

If the Tanzanite doesn't give you the color you want, I would try adding a bit of Edelstein Sapphire to the Topaz. It's more of a blurple, but it could work...

 

I also have Topaz and struggle to use it because it's just not dark enough for me. After I finish this bottle, I'll be switching to Iroshizuku Kon Peki for my "light" blue.
