Mixing ink is a lot of fun and is a very economical way of getting the most out of your ink.
My favorite brand to mix is Waterman. It is a great, cheap everyday ink that is problem-free in just about any fountain pen and mixes well.
I use Serenity Blue, Black and Tender purple as my mixing inks. I make a "Blurple" (inspired by Richard Binder) by mixing 80% Serenity Blue with 20% Tender Purple. And a Blue/Black by mixing 80% Serenity Blue with 20% Black.
Both of these mixes are fairly water resistant (see pic below). Have fun mixing! Waterman Inks
