    ive found that most gk batches ive used are harder to remove than most inks. just sayin'

    8 bucks will get you a quart of rusto round here. just throw in a lil paint thinner and your off.

    it seems we have a problem
    buff test on homemade green ink
    ingredients-
    green black and blue pens
    2 green sharpies, for color
    3 drops dot3
    3 drops methylene blue
    3 drops stamp ink

    bufed with 91% isopropyl alcohol about 2 hours after



    91% isnt enough i dont think... i use 99.7% ethanol eh whatever the meth blue i dont think would do much as solution is like 10 gms meth blue per a litre and thats pretty pointless. sharpies may fade fast but they seem to be all that is giving the ink that colour add a few more and the stamp ink wont really do much except make it weaker most have a really slow drying time so its probbably better just to add dot3 and no stamp pad ink. for the pens how many did you use??

    with the green being hardest to make im not sure about that ill post flicks in about two weeks of my ink colours.... black, blue, red, purple, green, yellow all made from pigments and dyes :D

    psh okay too bad its pretty much completely weather proof, and if its pained over itll bleed thru, and it only comes off if the buffer happens to have isoproyl alcohol, and thats onyl my green, which isnt nearly as dark as my other shitt

    okay no offence, but this conversation has been talked about too many times.
    some people prefer it, some people see no use of staining.
    its just a matter of opinion.
