What kind of paste? Paste for gluing things together? Toothpaste? A paste of dangerous chemicals?

An organic solvent like toluene or dichloromethane should dissolve pen ink (from a ballpoint pen). Acetone may also work.

There's both paste and pen ink? Be more specific and clear. What exactly are you trying to do?

Are you trying to get the ink out of a pen?

Really you are not making a lot of sense.

Yank off the tip of the ink tube. Blow the ink out into something.

Do you mean the clear gel that sits above, and hold the ink in place in the larger width pen tubes?

If that's the case, just take a paperclip, bend it, and scoop the gel out. Take a tissue and wipe the inside of the tube if you want to be perfect.

if you are talking about the paste on the top of gel pen ink then just remove the nib of pen then blow the air in refill slowly such that ink only fall out that paste is still in refill. now get a beaker now in it point the pen refill and just blow air your paste will be in it .dissolve it in anything you want like toluene, ethanol

i always thought vehicle *was* the carrier substance. Paste? perhaps in a lake dye but then that would be more of a paint no? The paste you refer to may indeed be the vehicle.

I think the vehicle, paste, and carrier substance are one in the same...

Try and find something the 'paste' isn't soluble in, but the color is.. or vice versa. assuming the paste isn't the color as well.
