How does the Color Kit work?
Each Color Kit contains a Color Base cartridge and five bottles of Color Pigment. This Color Pigment colors are Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black and White. Also included are the syringes for easy measuring and a Recipe Book.
For every color, another recipe is required. You must use the syringe the measure the appropriate amount of Color Pigment. Be aware, once you have made a color in the Color Base, it is very hard to make it into another color.
After mixing the Pigment in the Color Base, it is advised to shake the cartridge very well before placing it in the Form 2.
