You'll be in Paradise when you stamp with the VersaFine Clair Ink Pad by Tsukineko. There is one pigment ink pad included in the package. Stamped images are waterproof when dry and will not smear. The images are also light fast and fade resistant.
I posted a lot of questions about inks in the Q and A’s a while ago. After getting replies, I ordered an assortment of dyes, pigments and hybrids. Every dye, pigment, and hybrid I ordered is fantastic. This is one of them.
I created a chart on medium lavender using the same two stamps and on the same paper. I did not want to use white paper because I wanted to see it on a different color that was darker than a light color paper. The paper I used was the medium shade of the three lavenders I have. I was checking for clarity on the medium shade color, bleeding and drying time. All the inks I tested stamped beautifully. All but two (they are the exact same except for the color) were dry ASAP. They were all but two dry at least by the time my stamps were cleaned and ready to do the next stamp pad test.
This Clair dye is fast drying, The color is beautiful on the medium shade cardstock. This color dye shows up clearly and beautifully. It does not have a chalky feel like the pigment I used the very dirst time I stamoed anything.
It did not dry as clear as Scrapbook Premium Dye ink, both the text stamp and the little bird stamp, but, it is still excellent and I will proudly use it. It is close enough that price would be the factor, not the quality, they are that close.
