    Ok so like a said before i work at an art supply store now, and my boss knows i do graff and thinks its cool.(hes a bad ass) So i told him i make ink too and he gave so much good information about different shit i could do and use. So im gunna try a few different things out and see how they turn out, but hopefully ill have some bad ass inks and knowledge to share within the next few days. Im already workin on one now, he gave me some really good ideas on how to get good permanent colored inks out of whatever base i want. So ill let you guys know how they turn out.

    Heres the question, what would be the best base to base something in and where to i get it? Something stronger than alcohol.

    ^it all depends on whats in teh ink, just use whatever ur buff man doesnt use. naptha seems to be a good base, but its similar to paint thinner. Also methanol is pretty good, i think you can get it at liek home depot or lowes in those big cans. methanol is liek alcohol tho. and if u wanna use alcohol, just get de-natured alcohol in those big cans at home depot or lowes. but it doesnt really matter what base you use, juts what u put in it.

    can you make pen ink out of xylene? or can it be used for GK or both?

    i would assume you can since candy ink is xylene based.
    but if it does work, it'll only be good on plastic.
    and xylene can cause cancer, especially in CA.

    so be careful.

    well most products like deco, unipaint, and pilot[paint markers] are xylene based.
    but the cancer thing is the main thing that holds me back from even fucking with xylene. KR now resides in CA and i heard he got cancer fucking around with chemicals for his inks..
