The Paper Project – Experiment VII

Welcome back to The Paper Project! I don’t know why this test took so long for me to think of but I’m so glad I did! And on that note, if you have a suggestion for a test just drop me a line. ;D

Experiment VII – Paper Purities

The purpose of this experiment is to find out if any of the papers have hidden dyes that might or might not effect the markers. To do this, I applied two drops of Various Ink Blender 0 to the paper to get it really saturated and hoped it would push out and reveal inks in the paper. So let’s get to it and see what I found!

The papers are identified in the Introduction and here are the results:

Can you see it? I tried scanning this and nothing showed up so this picture is actually one step better. 😀 The results? I did find ink! I actually knew I would beforehand because of the paper I use on a regular basis has problems blending to white.

Papers A, K, L, R and V all had ink in the papers and resulted in a purple-ish ring. L shows up the lightest but is darker than what is actually pictured. (Please note: I have updated and tested with X but didn’t retake the picture.)

Based on this test alone I would recommend B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, M, N, O, P, Q, S, T, U, W and X to be the better papers.
