I have played around with these for awhile. When I saw Tim at a trade show doing a demo, I now have a whole new direction to explore.
I have always been very fond of mixatives for paints that gives paint, a shiny metallic sheen.
I really love this line of inks. Using the mixatives with the other colors adds a nice touch and gives it a finished look. I use the gold in my vintage layouts and I love how it works. The only problem I have with the mixatives is that they clog. Don't forget to shake them! I use a needle and just poke it thru the tip to unclog it. It works well. If you buy this product, don't forget you need to also use the blending solution.
