    Cant find it online but i know its in michaels. Its a liquid silver ink i believe. Last time I added it was sheer accident and it came out beautiful. I don't think it mixes with the ink but a simple bearing in a marker would fix that. It comes above the ink when you write, and a little goes a long way. Thanks for the tip about the gold too. I guess I'll do silver/green now.:D

    Yea Grog is the Shit I got my hands on a lil a while ago and I have been stuck on it. Im ording some more of that shit. But Zombie is ILL NASTY, it Stains real Nice, dosent fade that fast or at all, DOSEN'T SCRAPE OFF. Which mean it gets into the surface good, and leave a nice ass Stain. Look into it. I recommend it.

    haha, is the the caligraphy ink by chance? cause ive used that shit before and it came out pretty ballin. I Recently stumbled across powder craft pigments too for like adding to glazes and just about anything else but theres a few bad ass metallics that make ink look sic when you add some of it. And there handy cause some of the colors are like mettalic red or purple so it adds a different hue too.

    I need help, ive got a recepy for my markers but i need to improve it:
    -acrylic paint
    -oil-based wood stainer
    -2 caps of brake fluid
    It works great on wood and you cant wash it off with water, but you can smudge it.
    How do i make it dry faster.

    First off, Facedorateur, you have no idea what you are doing. You have no recipie at all. what you have is a luquid shit. You clicked on this thread saw different ingredients and thought they could all combine. Well you sir are a dumb ass. Acrylic is water base, it mixes with neither woodstainer or brakefluid. Your oilbased woodstainer mixes with nothing and your brakefluid is useless. Dont add it to oil based materials its pointless. Even if you had something that brakefluid would be good with 2 cap fulls is too much. You don't even give the ratios of the ingredients.
    No shit you can't take it off with water, you can't even take sharpies off with water. I bet a little bit of thinner would take it right off. If you cant even make a recipie were even 2 of the ingredients makes sense then you need to sick with buying your paint/ink.
    Dumbass.

    Go search, there are plenty of posts that informs you on stuff like that. Plus, india ink can be buffed by water.

    And, does anyone have a good homemade black ink recipe? I dont have anything like marsh or pilot ink so i was wondering if anyone knows any recipes that can be made from things at walmart. Ive searched but the only black ink i can find is with things like pilot ink, corio, marsh, or w/e. Thanks

    tar is quite useful in black inks, cook it down to a goo and then cut it in with one of your regular inks. if you use enough it should be more black than purple. Black is tricky cause most blacks are based in another color thats why black pens turn out purple ink.


    And Sive, india ink sucks its easy to find but its a water base so not real good for staining. Start at the begining of this thread there should be plenty of staining recipes between this and the ink recipe thread, if you still have questions after you read them ill hook you up with some answers

    the only non water based inks they have (that i know of) are little bottles of alchohol based dyes. i never tried them but they might be useful. you also might want to look for silver caligraphy ink but i dont realy know anything about it.

    Sub - Ghosting is when the ink shows through after it has been painted over leaving a "ghost" of the tag.

    Sive - Micheals doesnt have much as far as usuable inks go, but you should look for resin dye which comes in a little plastic bag w 3 little bottles in it. 1 red 1 blue and 1 orange, they make good additives in pen ink. especially if you use the blue w blue pens red w red ect.

    Sive - not sure about the nail polish, people have metioned the idea but no one has come back with results. Art supply stores sell alot of paint additives for oil and acrylic though that add a glossy finish and they do mix into pen ink because ive tried them. Also the have a slow dri chemical that i use alittle bit of rather than dot 3

    And for all you noobers india ink sucks, unless you boil it all down to black pigment and then add it to alcohol or naptha (Concentrated lighter fluid found at lowes/home depot) Other wise its just dirty water.

    Blacks are tricky without the stuff youve mention, i would do your best to try and cop at least one of them if your gunna be mixing a black ink. If not you could try a REALLY dark woodstainer or a black leather dye, also adding tar after it has been cooked down to goo if helpful, if you use the leather dye though you should be getting close.

    Make sure to read what kind of calligraphy ink you are getting because some of it may be water based.
