    Black Ghetto Garvey:stolen

    Things you need:
    Black Pens
    Mixing container
    coffee filter

    -Go get some charcoal, REAL charcoal, preferably willow. Pinecones work too. Do not use BBQ charcoal, as it's mixed with sand, you're best option is to make it yourself, or go down to the beach, there's usually some driftwood with a thick layer of charcoal.
    -Next you're going to need to break the charcoal into small peices and grind it up, a coffee grinder works well. Make sure it's a fine powder, use a pestle and mortor if you have to. (Pestle and motor is a bowl and round stick used in cooking certain cultural dishes... Or summoning dragons.)
    -Alchohol, the higher percent the better.
    -Pour the alchohol into a large container with a sealed lid, add more charcoal than you think you need.
    -Shake as much as possible, let it sit for a while (a day if you can) and shake some more.
    -Pour through a coffee filter into another container, and back through the filter into the original container. This takes out any insoluable charcoal.
    -Test your ink.
    -If it's decently opaque break open some black pens and get as much in there as needed, it should be as opaque as india ink. (don't worry it doesn't buff nearly as easy)
    -Get some additives in there (fish oil, methylene blue, gentian violate(sp) etc.)
    -If it's not very opaque (before the pens) add more powdered charcoal and repeat the previous steps as neccesary.

    Tips: The longer you let it sit the better, warming the alchohol also helps to mix it, although. I don't suggest it, as some people in here may light themselves on fire.

    This doesn't stain as hard as regular garvey, but it doesn't fade as easily in the sun. It also works a lot better than the original ghetto garvey (violet)

    an ounce is approx 30ml.

    so i use ten pens per ounce

    you would use about 120ml with all the pens you have.

    There should be a thin line between the body and the nib. Just wedge it free with a exacto knife. I always get them of with my teeth but getting DED on your face is not smart.

    Taken From Smokey of
    I was wondering on using this for things OTHER than mixing paint. How about using the once female cap on a female can. A lot of female caps spray skinnier/fatter lines than male caps, maybe this will help with the new Painters Touch thing going around. Idk, if it works lemme know. I've got a bunch of female caps and I will just rack some stock caps.

    That seems like not enough pens. The recipe is originally 100pen:1 cup of iso.

    Edit: Just converted ml to cups. You added almost 2 fucking cups of isopropyl bro no wonder that shit is thin as fuck. For 36 pens use a little less than half a cup or 118ml so you don't have to convert.
