Ever since Conklin introduced the All American model, I’ve been a huge fan. The All American pen is a perfectly weighted and balanced cigar shaped pen. It feels substantial in the hand without tiring you after extended periods of writing. I look forward to each new version of the All American that Conklin creates. That’s part of why I’m so excited about the new Conklin 1898 Misto Pen Collection. The other part of my excitement for this series is because of the beautiful swirled resin. In fact, I’m so happy with these 1898 Misto pens that it’s a two-part blog this week. While both have factual information, the next one will have my own pictures and video (hopefully offering a different point of view).
First of all, “Misto” is the art of resin mixing. Therefore, the Conklin 1898 Misto Pen Collection mixes liquid turning it into solids using the latest advanced techniques. Notably, the Conklin Pen Company is proud to introduce a brand new, beautiful pen collection – Conklin 1898 in Misto™ colors. In Italian Misto means “mixed” or “mixed together”, which refers to the NEW unique resin mix of various multiple colors for each pen.
Secondly, mixing resins for luxury pens requires precision and attention to detail to achieve a superior and aesthetically pleasing result. The process is started by selecting a high-quality liquid resin, choosing suitable color combinations, and following a precise step by step process of mixing the colors together.
Above all, mixing different resin colors can prove to be quite challenging for several reasons. First, the varying opacity and translucency of the colors can interact in unexpected ways, making it difficult to predict the final color outcome. Additionally, the highly concentrated pigments used in resin can lead to unpredictable color variations, requiring careful consideration of proportions. Managing the curing time becomes crucial when working with multiple colors, as it may extend the resin’s working window.
Achieving the right color balance poses yet another obstacle, as each color’s intensity may differ. Mastering the mix requires painstaking attention to detail, shaping the final outcome through trial and error. The colors, with their distinct characteristics, can play unpredictable tricks, defying initial expectations. Countless attempts were made to balance pigments and proportion, leading to finally achieving desired one of a kind variations. Moreover, environmental factors like temperature and humidity can influence the curing process, adding further complexity to the task.
Finally, the introduction of air bubbles during mixing can also drastically impact the resin’s final appearance. It is essential to gain experience and practice with small test batches before embarking on a larger project, understanding how different colors interact and ensuring compatibility between them. With patience and perseverance, one can overcome these challenges and create stunning, infinite combinations of resin artworks with skillful color mixing techniques.
