A FEW THINGS ABOUT POWDER BASED INKS: To those not completely familiar with powder based pigments, in the event of minor separation of color (especially those in which white is included in the mix ) the bottle needs to be shaken. Also, sometimes with certain pigments, at first glance the color may seem to not match the name on the bottle – or may appear to look exactly like another with a different name. GO BY THE NAME AND SHADE OF COLOR ON THE BOTTLE. And, if you’re still not sure, simply put a drop onto your palm or finger and rub it. You will see the true color. Draw downs are done for every color , with every batch to make sure the color and shade matches the name on the bottle. Also, with the darkest colors of any shade, simply put a drop of white ink on your palm and a drop of the darkest color and you will see the spectrum of that color.
