The Rainbow Connection

One of our customers, a talented artist named Gentian Osman, sent us some scans of ink colors she created using Platinum's new mixable ink, "Mix-Free". The 9 inks in the set are designed to be mixed together, enabling one to create a unique and personal color, or even to reproduce an old favorite. Of course, the inks themselves are vibrant and quite well-behaved and are capable of standing on their own without being mixed.

To create each of these colors, Gentian mixed one of the colors in the set, Leafy Green, with one the set's other colors. As you can see, she produced some amazing results, and I'm especially blown away by the shading that comes through in the Aqua Blue/Leafy Green combination. Of course, this is but a smattering of what's possible with these incredible new inks.

Of course, you don't need to be an artist to get a similar outcome. Anyone can create spectacular colors with Platinum's Mix-Free Ink. All you need is some creativity and a willingness to experiment. And, to make it easier to access your inner child, The Pear Tree Pen Company offers an economical alternative to the full kit: A "jumbo" sampler set of all 9 inks, & all the accessories needed to mix and store your creation: A trio of our exclusive glass vials (with eyedropper caps!), a Write-Fill Kit, and a full-sized empty ink bottle in which to store your newly created shade. Not to mention a couple of PTP ink blotters tossed in for good measure.

Give it a go - I think you'll be surprised at the beautiful and unique shades within you.

Thanks for stopping by!
