does anyone know and good binders for suspending pigments in xylene? i found this stuff called

melamine resin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melamine_resin).

apparently it is dissolved in n-butanol and xylene. So... if im correct you should be able to disolve some of this plastic with xylene and suspend yoar pigments in it correct? i need to find soem and try it out

Hey guys, I have tons of these fountain pen cartridges, can I use them to make my graffiti ink instead of destroying 100 pens and cutting them in 3 ?

So after years of not posting.... And actually using and trying almost every type of ink and paint mixes in my absence, I've learned the following: How well an ink stains, and how well an ink weathers are two completely separate things, and the only way to get an ink that will do both well. Use a UV resistant base ink. T-Grade being the standard for my base, although I find its tackiness a growing concern. It clogs on contact with water beads and has ruined my night a few times. I used to use Garvey to dilute the T-Grade but found that it compromised the opacity and lightfastness to much even at minimal dilution. Now, I use tgrade (50%) mixed with any other alcohol based ink (30%) to reduce tack, and a dash of speedflow (20%) for extra UV protection. A sprinkling of GV/MB/WHY and that's it! I've been tagging for coming up on 18 years now, and I've gotta say this is the holy grail of ink for me. Don't get it twisted... I've spent days and gallons of ink mixing, experimenting, trial & error getting to this. I'll often now use a lighter color for the filler (alcohol) ink which can add nice highlights in this hot mess of vandalicious delight. For me brake fluid is a joke, as are most dyes and alcohol based inks as they cannot handle the weather here. Between the constant rain & sun, and lifestyle of a ruthless hustler, I don't have time for anything less than the best... and this is it my friends.... Enjoy. And if you can't afford it, you shouldn't use it. Speedflow is the bidness though.

Yo so what do you guys think of this recipe:

T-Grade

Nero leather dye

GV liquid

MB liquid

PP powder.

Mix all of that shit together well making sure there is no clumps of anything.

I want to try boiling it all together but getting cancer doesn't sound fun especially cause I don't know what Im doing.

Any advice?

i would start with 2-3 of those mixed if you don't know what you're doing (i barely do).

don't really need to boil it.

 

Can you buff acid etch on metal?

Black Parker Quink

Diamine Denim

74% isopropyl alcohol

lots of pens and sharpies

WD-40

two caps of dot 3

lil bit of charcoal

and some car polishing type shits who's labels say they're UV resistant and water resistant.

 

I've used this brew a couple times before in my mops, but have yet to establish the best ratio for the ingredients. Or at least I haven't measured it. Otherwise it's pretty sexy.

I like xylene based inks for mixing.

im guessing he meant something like smash ink when mentioning xylene but for the most part xylene is used for thinning paint and itll eat the fuck out of any plastic based mop/marker if you leave it long enough

 

to make some shit like that get some silver metal rust paint, dunno what youd call it in america i guess just rustoleum bucket paint. they do it in small 250ml tins so get that and mix it with 3 or 4/5ths thinner (so 250ml paint/200ml thinner), stir the fuck out of it and put in a mop or whatever shit, basically just the same ghetto krink recipe thats being floating around for the last 15 year. im from britain so i tend to get these two:

that thinner is xylene based but if youre leaving paint in a mop long enough for it to eat through and leak you're shite

Just made some more ink and used some more accurate measurements. 150 pens, 1 1/4 cups 91% isopropyl alcohol, 1/4 cups purple PVC primer. I should have either used less alcohol or just kept the brew the same, because I'm starting to notice when I add any amount of charcoal to the mix with the expectation of it becoming thicker, it just leaves hateful wet clumps in my mop. I've heard various types of powders referenced to be used as thickening agents? Are we talking like baby powder or what?
