pretty much self explanatory I suppose ... anyway after the initial sampling I posted while ago. I go out and do the inter-fix. This is how I do it, I use industrial / lab syringe to measure exactly 0.6ml each of 2 ink and had them mixed in a 2ml lab sample vile ( the same kind of plastic container usually ink sampler come in but its 2ml instead ). I had them then stored in cool covered ( no light ) for about 3 weeks to made sure the mix do not come with some unexpected chemistry experiment. Then its onto the color table, all are put onto the paper using a Glass Dip pen, paper is Rhodia dot pad paper, and 3 patches of standard graphic use graphite pencil 2B,4B, and 6B are included for those who want to colour balance the photo for better accuracy.

 

Some surprise in the mix but most are expected. I think I might go off& get some extra bottle of certain colours to made a full 30ml of a certain mix

 

This is how the ink come in ( 15ml per bottle X 12 colours )

OH WOW, that's awesome. Thank you for sharing.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

pls refer back to the old thread regarding the individual ink swatch ( do note they were taken with a different camera under different weather so try not to be too precise with the color, card stock the same, and location , my garden bench area , the same )
