Platinum Mix Free Ink Recipes



Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

It appears that several people, me included, are ordering one of the various Platinum Mix Free sample kits available. I thought it might be a good idea to start a thread where people can share the recipes cooked up with these kits. I hope people will post sample pictures along with recipes for colors they've created using the kits.

Notes: mixed using single drops of ink into an artist's palette to conserve ink. The pen was a flexible crisp italic dip nib with a crappy holder that was coming apart during the session. Switched to an oblique nib holder halfway through.

Nice work!

With the new FPN rules, now I REALLY don't know what to put in my signature.

Man oh man. Thought I would be able to resist these inks, but now I must have EB+SY.

Greetings AG,

 

Thank you very much for posting this... BTW, please remind me to kill you later. ;)

 

So many beautiful combinations; I'll never know what to load my pen(s) with anymore! That QB + LG looks like a very close match to New York Central Jade, (an old railroad color I'm fond of).

 

All the best,

 

Sean :)

Altec, have you eaten and slept yet? LOL! I can picture you working feverishly on these like you are trying to find the cure for cancer. It's really obvious how much fun you are having. Has anyone checked the water-proofness of the basic bottles?

 

AG, did you only do that one with the dilutant ("DL") so far? I'm wondering how well that works.

Actually, I have a good memory (I think), but I don't remember ever having seen such a fast and complete and overwhelming reply.

Water resistant. Seems a bit better than Iroshizuku. They are not fully waterproof like Platinum's Carbon Black.

 

The words remain quite legible while wet even the color bleeds. It may become better if the ink has had time to really dry.

No No! No!!

I have have enough trouble keeping my OCD in check with a single bottle of ink. (And some know what happens when I do something so simple as mix water with ink.)

Reckless enablers! Abandon all hope!!

kushbaby was right again - the Zombie Apocalypse is nigh!!!

Eeek!
