    so I made my ink with pens, methylated spirits and dot4 brake fluid, I put it in a brand new mop but it is really weird because when I write it kinda blends to the surface and drips in big chunks (it's hard to explain), basically the sides are really fuzzy and not clean, any suggestions?

    Probably way too much brake fluid. All you need is a pinch. Too much and the ink gets wayy too thick . Get some more pens, some marsh some pilot and some leather dye . That's what I use it' been good for me

    are you squeezing too hard or something? but like wepon said, put less brake fluid next time if you dont like drips

    YO man I made a hella good ink when fucking around in my garage
    get some
    wood stain
    india ink
    stamp ink
    rit dye (powder)
    soultip paint
    dot 3
    fish oils

    take all those ingrediants and throw em into a big fat bottle and you got a nice ink

    i recommend 1/3 india ink 1/3 soultip paint 1/3 woodstain take the other ingredients and throw em in and you are up and out
