Pardon the resurrection of an old topic. As it's not possible to edit my original post, I am adding a refined/updated version of my CMYK chart here.

Wow! Thanks a whole lot for posting this Limner! This looks like a great resource :thumbup: .

Um, these all give me a 404 that says, "The page you tried to access does not exist on this server. This page may not exist due to the following reasons:" and it gives the usual reasons.

Out of curiosity, for the tints, has anyone tried using Whiteness of the Whale or Blue Ghost, instead of water?

Writing instruments of the moment:

  • Pilot Prera Fountain Pen in Vivid Pink XF (Levenger ink, Pinkly).
  • Uniball α-Gel Slim Pencil in Pink (0.3mm leads).
  • Pilot 742 Fountain Pen in Black with Falcon (flex) Nib, (Pilot ink, Black).
  • Nikko G Nib in the penholder.

Yes. See the above-referenced color charts. They used Whiteness.

Doh! :headsmack: I should have read instead of skimmed the start of the thread.

 

Okay, next question: If I have neither Whiteness or Blue Ghost, do I have to use distilled water? Would using tap water yield some unwanted reactions and properties?

Pink Ink, water won't change the essential color, it'll just change how thick it lays down. I don't think Blue Ghost will change the color. I do have some Whiteness if you want a sample to play with. I think you'd also like Rachmaninoff and possibly Kuprin. :)

Oooh thanks. Maybe its the labs I have to take this semester but I want to do a side by side comparing a mix using Whiteness, Blue Ghost, distilled water and tap water -- compare things like wetness, smoothness, consistency, texture, etc. Tap water anyone can get anywhere, and I can prolly mooch a few mL of distilled water from my chem lab :embarrassed_smile:, and I have Blue Ghost coming to me on the way. But Whiteness has been very hard to find, so thank you!

 

At PPPC, you had this beautiful color that also had a strong odor, was that Kuprin?

That was indeed Kuprin!

 

It's not the pinkest of the Russian line, but it is a very well-behaved ink -- except for its smell.

There is something I finally can do with those bottles I got of White Whale.

With the new FPN rules, now I REALLY don't know what to put in my signature.

This was a good topic to resurrect... I enjoyed it and may start mixing....

I received Noodler's Yellow, Shah's Rose and Navajo Turquoise today, so the experiment is about to commence.

 

Forgot about Whiteness of the Whale, though... :bonk:

LOL What a great idea! I'm a printer and spend quite a bit of time playing with process colors. The only issue I would have is the purity of the color plays a very large role in how well certain shades are duplicated. Although there are no 100% pure dyes (fountain pen inks) and pigments (printing inks) having the color as close to 100% pure CMYK is very important. If I were to attempt something such as this I'd have to get really nerdy and start bring samples to work to measure with the spectrodensitometer. :headsmack: Just think, if there was some standardization in fountain pen ink hues there could be Pantone Matching System devised for fountain pen ink mixing- you could make your own spot color fountain pen inks. :roflmho:

I'd rather spend my money on pens instead of shoes and handbags.

OK, so now I need Noodler's Yellow, Navajo Turquoise, Whiteness of the Whale, & Black -- to let me mix nearly any color. In addition to the Watermans Violet and Shaeffer Slovenian Scrip Red to mix up Binder Burgundy.

The wife will not be pleased...

      @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.
