    Default MB Permanent Black quick tip

    I used to experience long drying times when using Montblanc Permanent Black ink. Even if I waited a couple of days there would still be a problem with smudging on some papers. But now, after diluting the ink with water the problems are gone.
    I did 2 parts ink and 1 part distilled water. Love this ink now.

    Can confirm. I also found that diluting it cures the annoying smudging problem. Works pretty well at 2:1. So now I have 100mL of the stuff lol.

    This tip is very useful. I wonder if dilution will also diminish the accumulation of residue on ink windows. The accumulation of ink residue is the reason I stopped using these otherwise excellent inks in my Pelikans.
