    why would you want your inks to smell even a little good... they just about all have harmful chemicals that you shouldn't be inhaling, and if it smells good your only more likely to take a wiff.

    Just add more pens to your original batch. There is no need to make another batch.

    Question about methylene blue !

    Ok i have heard you can only get the power form of methylene blue from chemists only with a prescription... I think its for genital herpies or thrush lol.

    I was wondering if the liquid form you can pick up from pet/fish stores is good enough to go in your ink recipe? or is it too weak and not worth it unless you can get the pure powder form...

    btw i live in australia.

    Cheers !

    the stuff in dalos is realy thick so you could try useing krink with less thinner than normal. or your glue idea might work

    @Mickey69:
    Yes you can use the pet store bought Methylene Blue. Its dissolved in water but it will still work. Don't worry about it being waterbased, water and alcohol do mix and provided your ink is mainly alcohol based, adding a little bit of waterbased methylene blue to it won't wreck it.

    @Nekel1:
    Go to any local pharmacy. You should be able to find Isopropyl Alcohol in at least a 70%. Try and get the best percentage you can. Some pharmacy's carry 91%.
    Do a Google product search for 99% Isopropyl Alcohol. Not sure how hard it will be to find a site that will ship to London.
    If you want to use Alcohol, go to a hardware store and get Denatured Alcohol. Denatured alcohol is usually 90% Ethanol (alcohol) and 10% Methanol (a type of alcohol.) It should be in the Paint/woodstain area of the store.

    has anyone tried making some sort of ink out of the stuff in jos sticks? i broke one open yesterday accidentally and i thought this would be perfect, i know it doesnt last long but the liquid from the one i broke has lasted at least 12 hours, i saw a glow in the dark one by esher and i realised this might've been how he did it.

    Glow sticks are useless to use. Think about it. If it lasts only 12 hours then if you tag something at 10 at night then it will only glow until 10 in the morning. Now who is going to see you tag in that span of time?
