The Tuxedo Black Momento Dye Ink Pad by Tsukineko is fast-drying, fade-resistant, and permanent when dry. It delivers fine impressions and very even coverage. The ink is water-based, acid-free, and non-toxic. The raised inked area is 3" x 1.75" which allows you to ink any size stamp. This ink will not smear when used with Copic alcohol markers making this an inkpad of choice for many artists.
This is a great ink to use for stamping if you intend to use water color or sprays to enchance your images... it will not run or smear. I believe it is totally permanent. I have used it for stamping paper dolls and coloring with copics and it is fine without damaging the image.
I love using this ink for stamping. It drys very fast and you can touch it as soon as you stamp and won't smear. It is excellent if you use the copic markers because it doesn't bleed
I bought this because I read that StazOn would mess up Copics. Normally, I stamped my images with StazOn and loved it. However, after trying Memento (I know it's the same company), I'll be buying Memento from now on since I only need to stamp cardstock. The pad is very "juicy," which is a word that I heard others use to describe it, but I never knew why they would use that term until I tried it myself. My images stamp clearly, and the black is genuinely black and not one of those faded versions. It looks wonderful, and I haven't had any issues with it!
I have only a few distress ink pads but wanted to try other kinds of ink pads. I bought this Fade Resistant Dye Ink Pad - Tuxedo Black for a project and love the results I get in my journal pages. I bought other colors too. They add a vibrant color effect which looks great. Will certainly buy more colors
I purchased this item for using with alcohol pens. Recently the two major craft stores in my area stopped carrying this line of ink, so I was delighted to purchase it here, and fully intend to continue shopping with Scrapbook.com.
