Hello, all! Happy Wednesday! Not long ago, my friend Lydia recommended Inkon3 inks to me. She even had Inkon3 send me some! Thanks, Lydia and Inkon3! In today’s video I tested out the Inkon3 Black Out Hybrid ink with Copic coloring.
(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).
I found the Inkon3 Black Out Hybrid ink to be just as described. It dried to the touch quickly (like a dye ink), and it had good coverage (like a pigment ink). I really put the ink to the test by stamping the very large image from Concord & 9th’s Wonderful Florals stamp set. There were a couple spots that needed more ink, so I stamped the image again. But to be fair, with an image this large I think most any ink would need to be stamped twice. That’s why I love my MISTI! It’s so easy to stamp it again. :)
Next was coloring with Copics. Just to be safe–and because I do this with all other inks when I stamp them multiple times and plan to coloring over them–I hit the image with a heat tool for a few seconds to make sure everything was dry. Then I started coloring. For the most part, I didn’t notice any smearing or bleeding of the color. I think the ink held up well with the Copic markers over the top. For my first impression, I would say this ink is equal quality to Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. That’s what it most reminded me of since I use that ink for Copic coloring also.
That’s all for today! I have another ink from Inkon3 (the Fade Out ink) to try. Watch for that soon. :)
