Mixing Inks

We love playing with color in the studio, and are consistently experimenting with different combinations. We use the Van Son Rubber base inks to mix a wide variety of colors (basically any color you could think of) using our Pantone formula guide. Yesterday, we mixed a new turquoise color from process blue, pantone yellow, and transparent white. The mixed color looks a lot darker on the board than it does on the paper, so we’ve learned to trust the Pantone guide and not our eyes alone.

We are always amazed when we mix colors to see the vast variety we can get from just a few base colors!
