Re: Color Mixing with Ink?
It depends on what kind of pen you are using and therefore what inks you can accomodate. But for Acrylic inks I'd either go with the aorementioned FW Ink Process Cyan or Liquitex Acrylic Ink Phthalocyanine Blue (GS). Both are transparent and can be thinned with water to make them lighter. If you mix with white, you've basically made it opaque, so you have to decide if that is the effect you want. Some acrylic inks are translucent or opaque, so read the label carefully (both mentioned lines list that on the label).
Inks can be mixed like paint - acrylics are usually reasonably lightfast, dye based color inks tend not to be. Always test the mix before you commit it to the final piece if you aren't familiar with the results.
