My Own Burgundy Ink

Decided I'd try making a burgundy ink with what I had on hand rather than purchase Waterman and Sheaffer inks for the job. The J. Herbin Violette Pensee is true purple color, but Noodler's Widowmaker isn't a true red. However, the mix looks good and I'm having a lot of fun using this ink. I'm thinking of adding a drop or two of black to darken it a bit, but I can't think of what else would look good. Orange?


  1. Looks good - like ice cream raspberry sauce! Yum.

  2. I now have the desire to drink the remaining mix and see if it tastes like berries, lol.
