JetPens has started up their program again where they send select artists a $25 gift certificate. I always have a hard time narrowing down the pens that I wanted to try but here's what I bought this time:
Deleter Manga Ink - 30 ml Bottle - White 2 (Aqueous White-out & Waterproof) (shown in the above photo.)
I like how thick and opaque the white ink is. I applied it with a brush. It does have a smell to it so those of you who are sensitive to smelly art supplies, fyi! It dried fast (always a bonus in my book) on the magazine paper that I used. I'm looking forward to playing with the ink some more.
I'm always a sucker for an extra fine pen in colors that I don't have. I'm not a huge fan of the Copic markers in general but I do like these (especially the colors.) Note how well they work on official washi tape (MT brand) vs. the fake washi (Scotch brand.) Once dry, they're not going anywhere. I rarely use my Copics but I can see me using these more often in an effort to push myself out of my comfort zone and try some new color combinations.
I haven't had a moment to try this cleaning solution out yet. As soon as I do, I will report back. Cleaning pens is always at the bottom of my To Do List and I have a pile that need to be cleaned out. I'll let you know what I think of this stuff asap!
