Any one mixed Platinum Pigmented inks to get a nice dusky or voilet purple? 


Thinking 2:1 Rose Red and Blue.  But know subtle hues can throw off color to a gray.


Wanting to research before spending 40 (or 60 if need add Carbon Black to darken) plus dollars.

Be very careful with carbon black, it’s a very dominant color.

On the side of platinum preppy there is a warning not to mix colours of platinum ink, not sure why but it’s there.

I have found that when mixing pigmented inks the result tends to be on the dull side.

Also mixing a tiny bit of red with blue will make it darker anyway (the red absorbs some of the blue light and the blue absorbs some of the red light), but mixing in a bit of black will just make the whole lot look blerrgghh..
