This is by far my most frequently used ink. The cost and size makes it a great
value, easily. It is a semi-glossy to glossy ink after drying which I have
always favored for doing Original Artwork as it gives a great look. It is also
holds up very well to use with alcohol based markers (ie Copic, Prismacolor,
Touch, etc). It is a very black ink when used with pens, and holds up very well
with brush work (though you may want to age the ink if using it for filling
large black areas).
However, this ink seems to be slightly thinker than others such as the Deleter
inks and Pilot inks. Drying time is almost twice that of Pilot, so be careful.
The slightly thicker consistency can cause flow issues with nibs that have not
yet been broken in yet. However, I prefer a thicker ink when working with brush
and pen, so this doesn't bother me at all.
For a solid drawing in that works well with my brushes, pens, markers, and does
not easily fade when erasing, I will easily give this 5 stars. This will
continue to be my go to ink when working on projects that may see Copic markers
at some point.
