Yes, it is the current recipe, but I am still playing around with different mixtures.
I use more drops because the cobalt solution is weaker in the brand that I'm using.
It's only 1.5% cobalt whereas the Grumbacher is 5%.
If I was using the Grumbacher, I would be adding 3-4 drops (3.33333) in my solution.
I would possibly not use any if I didn't have stand oil in it.
Did I really say 3-4 drops in 500ml?
But your right in thinking that the cobalt should be in proportion to the oil in the mix rather than the solvent/oil mix.
If I decided to add more or less solvent for example, (while keeping the oil content the same), I wouldn't change the amount of cobalt I used.
