#01 choose keywords
#02 measure the ink colours based on the keyword chart
#03 pour ink into funnels
#04 release magnetic pendulum
#05 press glass onto paper with ink and remove
[#06 camera scans, machine calculates colour distribution and percentage]
#07 enter results into software
#08 hang paper sheet to dry
