Color Box Pigment Ink
Pigment ink tends to be thicker bodied than dye based inks and is usually distributed from a sponge pad. It does not soak in and stain the paper like a dye-based ink but, instead, dries on top of the surface and remains opaque. That means the ink takes a little longer to dry on regular paper, but the color will remain on the surface, appearing more bright and vibrant. Pigment inks are fade resistant, so they are great for projects requiring longevity, such as scrapbooks. Pigment ink will not dry on glossy paper unless you use a heat gun to set it. It may never dry on completely non-porous surfaces, such as plastic or metal. Sometimes, you may even wish to heat set on porous paper. Once heat set, you can watercolor over pigment ink without smearing. Because pigment ink is thick and stays wet for so long, it’s perfect for use with embossing powders! Cleans up easily with water.
