    Has anyone tried adding acids to their inks? Been thinking about making a batch with some muriatic in it.

    lol no dont do that. that´s not the move lmao. often the acid´s react with dyes or whatever else is in the ink you mixed into it and it´ll possibly explode

    Okay so toy question: for markers is it better with or without Xylene? I've been looking and I see that people either use it or don't use it. Are there advantages or disadvantages of having Xylene in your ink?

    I think it's dangerous to breathe in the fumes, not sure if xylene based inks stain better than ones without.

    Also, does anyone know how well inks'/ dyes will stain brick and concrete walls? I've got an idea of transfering ink into an aerosole

    i recently bought a stealth ink marker and did some research on what was in that shit, i seems like there is some sort of Silver Nitrate (AgNo3) in it and i had a silver nitrate pen laying around my house so i started expirimenting with it. turns out if you mix it with water and put it under direct sunlight it turns into a brown stain that is unbuffable. does any one now where you can get pure silver nitrate because the amount that is in the pen is very minimum. :)

    You can probably buy it online. Beware though.....Silver Nitrate will stain your skin with a PERMANENT black stain. If not washed off quickly, it can also give a nasty chemical burn!!!!!

    Yes i know, it is used to remove warts or something lol.

    Btw does anyone know of its a good idea to mix iron oxide with your ink, my thoughts were that the brown colour of it will leave a nasty ghost
