Well I am new to stamping and see that many inkpads by inkadinkado are "chalk" or "pigment"

Whats the differance?

Thanks!

Definition of Pigment Ink~ vibrant in intensity and appear the same color they stamp out. They are slower drying as it sits on top of the paper than dye-based inks that absorb into the paper. Pigment ink is the kind of pad you want to use if you are to emboss something. If you use a pigment ink on a glossy paper without embossing it- it will NOT dry. Pigment ink are often more light fast than dye based inks and may resist fading even in direct sunlight. Because of their formulation, when you have a multi-ink pad- the colors will not bleed into each color.

Thanks SO much! I am learning to emboss and I only have silver and white, so I am looking to get a primary set. I think I will be going with the inkadinkado pigment primary.

Agian thanks for the info!
