The Aqualip features a special 3-D ink that leaves a raised line of glossy ink that you can see as well as feel. It writes well on regular paper as well as non-porous surfaces like plastic, glass, and metal. You can even use it on translucent or transparent surfaces to create a stained glass effect! The water-based pigment ink is odorless, non-toxic, and waterproof on most surfaces. The Aqualip is the Japanese version of the popular Sakura Glaze
For best effect, write slowly to allow a thick line of ink to form and allow the ink to dry completely, which can take up to 10 minutes on most surfaces. Because the ink is thick and slow to dry, it is not ideal for extended writing. The raised effect works best on non-porous, clean, smooth surfaces and can be crushed down by pressing on it.
