Platinum finally put out a page on their upcoming Mix Free inks.


Here is the link to the Mix Free page with a sufficiently big color chart that shows the binary mixes. Pretty cool.

I must try one of these. I guess it's too much to hope for waterproofness, but still must have some of these.
In some things in life it's better to take a Zen approach. If you think too much you won't achieve your goal, wheras if you don't think and let yourself go, it shall be achieved with ease. I find this helpful in writing, kendo and music.

According to the initial report about these inks, they are supposed to be waterproof.

Anyone else think this is a trap? If one is good, it will suck you into buying another one just to mix with the first one, and then you keep buying to make more colors, until you have the entire collection :glare: .

Hi,

IMHO its not a trap - its a Vortex. :rolleyes:

Spoiled for choice - yet again.

There are two fundamental aspects that I like: 1) The inks are designed to be mixed - no need to wear my PPE Nomex bunny suit & orange fishnet stockings. 2) A person can choose the portion of the array to explore, without investing in a full set.

Also, I like to think that the results will be more predictable than the ad hoc approach, hence not wasting time & materials.

Getting the preferred density (light-dark) may not be so easy, but I reckon to give it a twirl. (I just heard my ink shelves groan & sigh.)

Bye,

Was a time I'd have gone nuts with this collection and done just that. Don't really have the time or space anymore but I am really looking forward to hearing what everyone experiences with these.

Maybe they will sell them as a set. I think I'd do it. I wouldn't have to buy any more ink for a year...not like I need any more ink for 10 years as it stands right now, but...

I want to see someone buy the right 4 bottles and still make the other bottled colors and all the mixes.

I will buy all of these when they are available. I do not have any colored inks except Waterman red so these will provide all of my color needs.

I'm waiting for Ricky to buy all the colors and bring the results of his mixing to Pen Posse, ha ha ha! He could fill a pen with each color. Oooh!

I agree completely.

Anyone know when or where these will be available? Does it line up at all with the FPN pens?

Good plan. You know me too well.

I'll probably buy several bottles of each and we'll have a special Pen Posse Ink Mixing Edition.

It is true I can bring a pen ink with each binary mix. That's would be a lot of work and cleaning.

The release date is unknown. It was supposed to be in April but things are getting pushed back in Japan for many things. This update only appeared on Platinum's Japanese website a few days ago even though Platinum sort of announced these inks unofficially at the Ito-ya event earlier in the year. . Brian Goulet said he already contacted Platinum when word first broke of these inks and said he would carry them.

Uh-oh... I'm in trouble, then. I will find a way to justify some more ink purchases...

You guys can come over and help mix the 40 odd binary combinations for the Pen Posse. Ink mixing party at my place. Although, I'm not sure I want to ink up 40 odd pens. That's what dip pens are for. But we could.
