Just a note about the dilutions of "DL-K6":...
So my new ratio for dilute "DL-K6" is as follows:
Since 114 & 106 might exactly the same as T378 cartridge
*mutters incantations and sprinkles small amounts of OEM ink around to resurrect the long moribund thread to share its secrets in this earthly realm of 2022*
Okay, so I've been looking at the whole Epson OEM inks 106 and 114's with a view to creating a Light Magenta and Light Cyan recipe that "might" allow end-users to grant themselves a decent longevity 6 colour ink set in their old school CIS systems or refillable cartridges and this topic cropped up so I thought I would throw open the doors, dust things off a little and ask what might be the best starting point for using those two ink sets and some GLOP and WJ807 Base fluid with the OEM Magenta and Cyan inks from the 106/114 sets.
From re-reading though the thread it seems we're looking at 33.3% ink, 66.6% diluting agent ratio as a starting point but if anyone has any suggestions or data that might suggest something else I'd welcome the input.
For the avoidance of any doubt, I'm looking at this from a POV of a group-think experiment that end-users can try at home... Not something I'd remotely wish to tie up as a commercial close-hold (It's mine, my precioussssusss'is) type silliness.
