    I guess I own more than 40 (never counted it, as having a high number in mind afterwards only would confirm with a hard fact what I already know.... that I own way too many inks which I will not be able to consume in several lifetimes).

    But most of the time I do not own the inks Im guessing (when already checked the ones I own).
    I look at ink comparisons and reviews and compare it with the photo of the mystery ink.
    Same here. In the beginning I bought my inks in bottles... But now only samples.... Though I'm hoping that I would narrow down my inks and get rid of the rest that I never use....
    Also use the same method to finding inks.....

    Jens, I tried your system....with an orange colour gel and a rustic UV described above:
    I assume my crude lighting doesn't work as well...

    Hi Yazeh,

    that looks better than before.
    My example was an easier task as exitation and emission were wider apart...
    Do you get clearer fluoreszenz with red or orange inks?

    No not really. The only this that shines is highlighter ink.......But my orange sharpies and Apache sunset are indifferent. It is possible that my makeshift UV light is not really working
    This is without filter.....
    The first two squares plus all written text besides (Sharpie) are Noodler's General, The 3rd square a Green highlighter, 4th yellow highlighter.
    The big blob of orange and red is a couple of drop of Noodler's Apache sunset...

    I hope you don't mind if post a last photo to show the fluorescence of the ink....
    I procured a UV flash light just to make sure
    I thought it might interest some....
    Neither the sharpies/ nor Apache Sunset glow but General of the Armies does...
    Fascinating

    Hi Yazeh,

    sure, that's interesting...
    What confuses me a bit, that we sometimes see blue sometimes green fluorescence...

    Jens,

    Mine was a sample. But from what I've read, there is a blue dye in the green ink. And the bottle must be shook before inking a pen.
    The ink is supposed to write green and turn into blue.
    On another forum I read that the green will fade with time...and the blue remain.....

    Hope this answers your question
