Pineider Ink Alchemy
Alchemy of Colours is an invitation to you to use your imagination and creativity, to look at the colourful side of the world. The collection takes its inspiration from the printing system known as CMYK which stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Key Black, a colour model also known as quadrichromy. When the first three colours are superimposed in varying amounts, they can create almost any colour. The system is fairly simple: by varying the amounts of Cyan, Magenta and Yellow you can obtain virtually any colour from red, pink and sky blue to purple, orange, green or any other combination. Black, in addition to being a primary colour, serves the obvious purpose of instantly darkening any colour formulation. Pineider has also invented a transparent ink for lightening the colour formulated and for thus creating a full range of sub-shades.
• Carefully replace each dropper in its bottle. If you accidentally pollute a colour, all subsequent formulations will also be distorted.
• The unit of measurement is the drop, so you cannot add less than one drop.
• Using the basic chart provided, mix the number of drops required for each colour in one of the five bottles provided in order to obtain the colour you want.
• Make sure the bottle is tightly sealed then shake it lightly.
• Add black to obtain a darker shade or transparent to obtain a lighter shade.
• The amount of each formulation can be reduced or increased by dividing or multiplying the drops required to achieve the colour by the same number.
