    well I mixed a bunch of black inks to make it but I can't get those inks in other colors and I don't know how to get it to keep all the capabilities as the black had cause it was bleed thru, heavy staining it was everything

    can i use white spirit for the pen ink? and if my pens are 3/4 full should i put in more white spirit or does it just give a thicker ink which i can thin down?
