Usage: Use a PMS mixing color guide or the CCI Color management software to mix the pigments into a base. Mix 10% pigment to 90% base. If using the PMS color guide, move the decimal point in the guide one digit to the left, bringing it from 100 to 10. Then follow the formula in the guide and mix 10% pigment to 90% base.
Example: 45.20g of ink, move the decimal one place to the left to be 4.520. You now have 10% of the formula. Scale these #'s up to the size of the container. If you want to make 800 grams of ink, then 80 grams will be pigment, and take the rest of the formula and multiply by 8. Do not over concentrate the pigment any more than 30% by weight, this can cause problems curing and wash fastness issues.
