Ink Challenge 2017-141: Personal Mix 001 - Withering Maple Leaf - Recipe Day.
As promised I would reveal the recipe of my first personal ink mix.
The ingredients are:
1 part of Noodler's Ink - Apache Sunset and
1 part of Pilot Iroshizuku - Ina Ho.
It is a easy one to make since the ratio is 1:1. The ink mixes well and looks to be stable even after three weeks. I used a sample vial as a container to mix the ink in and store it.
Both inks used are good shaders, but the most prominent one is the Apache Sunset with it's yellow highlight. The green helps to get the red toned down towards the brown.
For the people going to the Dutch Fountain Pen Meet next Saturday, you can give the ink mix a try. I will bring two filled pens with me.
My next mix hopefully will be a great sheener.
Starting tomorrow I will compare the mix to commercially available inks.

A lovely mystery blue ink that came in a bag of samples I got from a friend. I have no idea which ink this is but I am going to enjoy it while it lasts. I still have one more fill left after this one.

Ink Challenge 2017-140: Personal Mix 001 - Withering Maple Leaf.
In the nib comparison of my first ink mix, I saw a huge amount of shading. It already starts with the very fine nib. Here the shading is still subtle, but it does show.
With the Western broad and 1.5 stub nibs it is impossible to miss it, even if you try.
I also liked the fact that there was no long waiting time for the ink to dry.
The best feature is the color. It is a nice yellowish to golden brown.

Ink Challenge 2017-139: Personal Ink Mix 001 - Withering Maple Leaf.
It is nice to try something new every now and then. Today is such a day.
I made the mix some days ago for the first time since I couldn't find my Diamine Autumn Oak, and was in need of an autumn color. I then set the remaining mix aside to see if it is stable for a few days.
Since it worked fine and the color is to my liking, I thought it would be great to make it an entry in my posts.
If you like this idea, I can try this more often. Suggestions for a missing color in the world of inks are welcome.
The inks used will be revealed in a few days with the last comparison.
I didn't get sheen in the mix, but there is a lot of shading. I like to think it is a golden brown colored ink.
