PEN INK TUTORIAL: by: jet WHAT YOU WILL NEED: pens (40 per 1/2 cup of alcohol, at Target they were 10 for $.35) View attachment 308520 alcohol (at least 91%, at Target it costs $1.79) View attachment 308521 measuring cup View attachment 308522 jar with lid View attachment 308523 bottle to put finished ink in (not pictured) ok so get your pens ready, for this batch I used 90 black pens and 10 blue pens to make 1 and a half cups of ink. Normally I would use more pens but since there was a lot of leftover residue from my last batch of ink I used a litle bit less. View attachment 308524 now measure our your alcohol and pour it into your jar. The ratio that I reccomend is at least 40 pens per half cup but you can do whatever you want. View attachment 308525 cut the pens about an inch below the tip, you can use scissors but it fucks them up, I use wire cutters. View attachment 308526 toss the top of the pen in and pull the white tube out of the body. View attachment 308527 if you hold the tube up to a light, you can see that less than half of it actually has ink in it. cut the tube where the ink ends and toss the piece with the ink onto your jar, this saves space because if you don't do it, you won't be able to get all of your pens wet enough for the alcohol to suck out the ink. this picture is a uncut tube next to the part of the tube that actually has ink in it. View attachment 308528 as you can see it is ok for the pens not to be covered by the alcohol as long as at least one of the sides is under the alcohol. View attachment 308529 let it sit overnight. this is what mine looked like in the morning. View attachment 308530 now pour it into the bottle you keep your ink in, be careful to not get and of the tubes in. View attachment 308531 this is a drip from transferring bottles, I put it here so you can see how opaque the ink is even before I added anything. View attachment 308532 add ins: Dot 3 reburnt paper other inks/dyes etc. for this batch all I added was about a cap of Dot 3. View attachment 308533 now go rack a 2 way glue pen, View attachment 308534 fill that bitch up View attachment 308535 add a mixer View attachment 308536 tape it, because it will leak if you don't View attachment 308537 and crush shit! this ink is permanent as fuck. I hit a doorway with one of my friends. he used an OTR and I used this ink. A week later his tag was buffed but mine was bareley faded from the buff, a couple weeks later they just painted it over, with black.
