You will need;
Packet(s) of biros. Blue, Black, red, Green, whatever... just grab all the packets you can for like $2 or whatever...
Biro ink should bleed through layers of paint, or atleast one.
Empty Glass jar.
Gloves.
Scissors, Pruners whatever....
A teaspoon.
A Maccas Straw (what I use...)

Pull the inside "cartridges" (the tubes full of ink) out of the pens, and cut them up into smaller peices into your jar. (I find pruners work better than scissors...)

Now add a splash of your Thinners, xylene, acetone, even rubbing alcohol or whatever, into the jar.
Not heaps. I use the maccas straw, by dipping the straw into the xylene, and blocking the top, so I can "lift" the xylene out and drop it into the jar.
Maybe half way up the ink tubes.... remember, the more thinners you add, the more watery your ink will be, trial and error to get your preffered ratios...

Put the lid on, not super tight, but not so it leaks, and leave to sit overnight, a day or two.... whatever.
And just give it a shake now and then whenever you think about it, just to help the thinners suck out the ink from the tubes.
(I would also carefully every now and then open the jar, just to let the gasses out.)

Get Creative with your inks... Ive also chucked the felt insides of artline markers into the jar to soke, and added dreggs from spray cans, any other pen or texta I found lying around....

Over the next few weeks I will be adding to this page, showing some of my little tricks to help stain and bleed through layers of buff.
Feel free to add your own recipes too.

I mentioned a few at the start, Like paint thinners, acetone (or nail pollish remover)

Metho will evaporate, but may work, never tried... give it a go.
Maybe there'll be some toluene floating around, or even vodka in theory?
Rubbing alcohol.
I guess camping fuel might work, and probably be pretty cool!?
just make sure its the clear stuff, simmilar to kero.

Give it a go man, and let me know how you go.
Just remember, be careful, wear gloves, and try not to breathe in the gnarly fumes.

Ok, so carrying on with the "basic" ink formula...

If you can get your hands on some carbon/stencil/transfer paper, this is pretty cool.
(You might be able to get it from your art class, or ask the teacher to get some, tattoo shops use it to make there stencils, maybe you could ask them for a few sheets? Its expensive, bout $1.50 a sheet.)
The purple dye is actually "Gentian Violet" which is used as a veterinary antiseptic, and also a chemical stainer.

This will bleed through layers of paint.

Again, start with an empty jar
Some scissors
Your transfer paper (purple, and the thick paper one, not the thinner plastic one.)
And your alcohol, thinners, acetone etc....

Cut the stencil paper up into small peices. ( I used 2 sheets.)
Put a bit of your thinners whatever into the jar, and drop in the bits of paper.
Put on the lid and shake it a bit, leaving it to sit a day, overnight whatever, and shake it now and then.

Just to add to the top two Ink recipes;

Both of these I made with the intentions of them being "Ingrediants" not standalone inks, as you will see in future
additions to this thread. (although, there's nothing stopping you rockin a marker made of these anyway...)

If you leave the lid off your ink jar, the thinners/alcohol whatever, will evaporate. If you've put a bit too much in the jar, just leave the lid off a while so as to reduce. This may take a few days if you've put waaay too much in. Remember: "Less is more".

Also, if you happen to smoke cigarettes, adding a bit of the ash into your ink will thicken it.
(Dont smoke around your open jar of ink, you'll explode!!!)

Ok, now we have those two basics covered,  I'll start showing you the base mixes for my "S****r Specials"...

For this 1st One, You will need;

1 Empty Glass Jar.
A Bottle of Molotow Speedflow AND Coversall.
Acetone, Xylene, 1k or 2k Thinners, or a selection of these.
Can of WD40 or RP7. I use RP7 because its heaps cheaper. (You can also use Fish Oil Capsules/Omega3 capsules or Brake fluid.)
Wood Stain, Deck Stain.
Methylene Blue Crystals. (You might be able to find these in your science class. They are also used in Aquariums to treat water.)
If you struggle to aquire these, just skip this step.
Gentian Violet Crystals. (You might be able to find these in your science class. Also used as a veterinary antiseptic.)
If you struggle to aquire these, use the purple ink from the transfer paper you've already made, or skip this step.
A tea spoon.
A McDonalds straw (or simmilar.)
A nice Pump valve Marker. I preffer the 15mm Molotow Burner markers, but whatever you like best is fine.
(I will also in future posts show how to best convert a $6 "chalk marker" from Officeworks into a Bombing Weapon.)

Start by mixing the Speedflow and the coversall inks into the jar, about 50/50, and put the lid on and shake it up.
these are great inks as they contain bitumen in them, the same as the black tar stuff that holds the road base together.

Carefully pour this into your empty marker. About 3/4 full.
