My Ink Needs A Perm: Adding A Smidge Of Permanence?


Recommended Posts

Anyone care to share their favorite permanent ink additive - mix of permanent ink + X ink ?


While I enjoy Platinum Classics, Sailor nano pigs and Noodler's, it would be great to add a touch of permanence to the rest of my inks.


I'm guessing Platinum Carbon Black would be a good stable additive but that was only one test run


So far:



  • :) Platinum Carbon Black (just a smidge) + Noodler's 54th Massachusetts - stable


  • :( R&K Salix + Maruzen Blue: the mix writes but precipitates all along the inner demonstrator barrel


Ideal: Permanent reveal at 07:15 shows color washout but line is still visible. So the mix would be like this true Platinum Classic: color shows but when water is applied, at least the "permanent" iron gall burn still shows for archival review.

Nice explanations.


Consider adding Ghost Blue.

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