More On Platinum Mix-Free Ink08/23/2011
Not that an inkophile needs any encouragement to purchase ink, but Platinum Mix-Free deserves a recommendation. While I haven’t given the product its just due at mixing new colors, I can report that as a stand alone ink, Mix-Free performs very well.
Over the last month I used two, Aqua Blue and Aurora Blue, as my regular inks in Levenger True Writers with fine nibs. Lovely clear colors with good coverage, no flow issues, bleed through or feathering. Pretty and well-behaved describe them best.
If that piques your interest, The Pear Tree Company, who sent samples for review, has a special on the full kit of nine colors and all the extras for $134.95. That’s $15 per 60 ml bottle if you count everything else as a free bonus. Yes, that’s a lot of ink but it’s also a lot of fun. If mixing your own has appeal, this is a great way to get started. If you want a lovely range of colors, a Mix-Free kit will keep you going for a very long time. What more could an inkophile want?
