INK RECIPE SUPERTHREAD

Recommended Posts

aight chumba heres the deal: after you refill a pilot with anything, and get it juicy, you need to hold it upside down over your ink container so the ink drips off the nib into the container. do this until the drips come down about every 7 seconds, and your pilot will be super juiced (and you'll save some ink).

Thanks alot man my pilot is working wonders now. Thanks for the nib help, too. I haven't tried it yet but I'm sure it'll work. I appreciate you helping me without bitching to me like alot of other writers here do. So thanks alot.

griffin sucks balls for markers. It's good for a few bold tags but then the ink starts to get thin. Never put shoe polish in a marker.

rather than a recipe for making ink, i want to know about the recipe of ones already made. what i need to know is what inks do and don't contain xylene, or any other strong smelling chemicals. truth is, i catch alot of tags with joe public in close proximity, and the pungent stench of death eminating from the xylene in say, a magnum really doesn't help my stance of being incognito. plus, i'm kinda fond of my remaining brain cells. to make it easier, here's a list of some inks:

 

Marsh -

OTR H2B -

Montana -

Corio -

Nero -

Aerosol Art Bombing -

Pilot -

City-Wide -

Garvey -

 

thanks.

Marsh - similar to pilot, don't think it contains xylene. check the label on the tin.

OTR H2B - no idea.

Montana - heard its not worth fooling around with because its the same as zig and therefore waterbased and easy to buff - but no xylene.

Corio - comes in plastic container, see statement below.

Nero - see corio.

Aerosol Art Bombing - see montana.

Pilot - alcohol based, don't think it has xylene.

City-Wide - probably alcohol based.

Garvey - heard it's a mixture of dye and ink, and it comes in a plastic container so see statement below.

 

thanks.

 

here's a big hint: you can't put xylene based inks in plastic containers, because it eats plastic. therefore, whatever is in a plastic marker is not xylene based (so griffin for instance contains no xylene).

 

also, it may not be the scent of xylene that is so distinguishable...

 

to my best knowledge, the main pens that contain xylene are paint pens, like a krylon pen or uni-paint.

i kind of figured there would be an issue montana and aerosol art. i knew that montana paint is waterbased, but what i'm talking about is the ink. same for aerosol art.

going by the previous theory that they wouldn't put a xylene in a plastic container because it eats plastic... i'm going to have to say montana for sure doesn't have xyl, and theres a small chance the aerosol art does.

yeah just a heads up, i'm almost completely positive the only type of ink with xylene is paint / paint pens / silver ink / krink, and everything else is either water or alcohol based, therefore it doesn't contain xylene (but can still smell, although mildly).

 

i've heard about candy ink, where it stains hardcore and smells like candy, that they use on transit in SF. no idea on how to make it, and no ones giving the recipe :crazy:

Yeah Candy Ink!

 

I used to use it for Insides.... I havent got a clue wether the way I did it was the same as the Yanks and I never met anyone else who botherd but........

 

All I uded to do was get some food flavourings or "essences" e.g. banana flavoring or Vanilla essence, and just mix a bit in with my ink....its all like 80p a bottle so I used to sport a different flavour each few days.... my fave was Rum flavouring>but I think that just made people more aware.

 

well thats how I did it. just make sure you dont add to much otherwise it will start to diloute your stain and you dont want that.

 

ohh and whilst Im posting.... I may aswell just give my recipea.

 

Inferno 40%

pink Corio 50%

dash of Red Fiebins 10%

gentian Purple cristals> just a few...

then 2 grams of Methylene Blue Powder....

 

then put the lot in your marker with a mixing ball..... Works for me.....

 

if you cant get shit where you are just try Mixing Punch Leather dye with teak wood stain, and sticking in a Kiwi< a bumpkin classic from the early 90's:crazy:

Fuck knows sunny, I wasent a bumpkin back then....ermm I presume stain for teak wood....but any kind of wood stain will have a similar effect.... I once used blue multi pyrpose wood stain and a bit of inferno when I had nuthin else and wood stain was all I managed to rack, it worked ok so I presume all wood dyes are the same/have the same or similar affect.

Gentain Violet.... this is an additive which will make your ink slightly thicker, and depebding on what ink it is mixed with> also add a tint. It will also leave a stain/ghosting when buffed, or if mixed with the correct amounts of other ingredients help ensure an unbuffable stain.

those inks are so similar, but marsh is *slightly* stronger. mix some leather dye into it along with your gentian violet and its definitely going to help the stain/

INK RECIPE NUMBER TWO

 

This ones for homemade Krink. This is some of the easiest shit to make. First, get some Rusto Aluminum paint. Its nice and silver. Next get some Paint thinner. Mix it to whatever proportion you want - the more thinner, the more drippy. You can also add a little bit of brake fluid, for staining power.

 

Another quality brand of bucket paint for mops is ONE SHOT. It's ultra glossy, lead based, and used to paint signs on the street.

 

Any questions are welcome.

 

 

.......... wouldnt the pressure in the paint make the marker bust when you add rusto paint in it????

Adding mercurochrome to the ink helps it to stain more and adds a nice red hue to it, especially the drips.

sounds like they're waterbased, just like a zig. in that case, throw out the one you have and get a new one, don't let the ink get into the nib and drain out all liquid, and than refill with an alcohol based ink and mix it with leather dye. i've had a decent experience with using solely griffin, but i'd recommend mixing in ink as well such as pilot to help the flow.

 

either way, it won't flow as well as the original waterbased (weak) paint, but it'll be more permanent.

sorry i didn't make this clear earlier, but i meant to say use rusto BUCKET paint, not the stuff that comes out of a spray can.

i don't know about the quality of rain ex or whatnot, but if i were you i would not be trusting some kid who's only been writing for a couple weeks as to whats good or not.. shit.

 

edit: after doing a little research into it, i discovered what it actually is... fluid that helps to keep things lubricated so that when rain lands on a windshield, it seeps right off. and than i found it how to buff it - a 50/50 combination of denatured alcohol and water. eh, sounds legit. mixing silicone into your ink would probably be better, though.

 

edit 4-5-04: doing a little house cleaning to condense this thread a little.

QUESTION- i have a very promising mop vessel but have a dilemma with regards to filling; i dont have chrome bucket paint and dont wanna have to bother "obtaining" some, i do however have a loada chrome spray. would it be ok to just spray out all the chrome spraypaint, leave the propellant to vapourize, and then put THAT in a mop???

any help appreciated?:rolleyes:

this is what i was told to do and i did. spray it in a cup or whatever and add a marble or something to swish it around with. let it sit for a few days and mix the marble around every so often. then put it in ur mop. the problem is that its really thin so i just threw mine away, or u could mix it with something.

Marsh ink question

 

I'm from England, where it is nearly impossible to get Marsh ink, so I have no one else to ask this to:

 

I got me a big tub of Marsh ink and have been trying it out but I am finding it too thick to flow easily. I've tried diluting it with ordianry ink but not with much success. So far I've put it in a posca and also the MArsh 88 pen (the long one that looks like a big bolt) but neither have really been satisfactory. How can I get it flowing nicely? Does it only work well in a mop? (in which case I'm buggered as I hate mops as they aren't really siutable for what I hit).
