Was asked recently if I use the pads or reinker bottles. I use the reinker bottles because it is easier to pick up the ink with the brush and get the full strength color. The pads can be used too though. They can be wiped onto something plastic and the ink picked up from that. Whenever I get a new ink pad, if there is a reinker available, I get that at the same time. Always ready for re-inking the pad and then the reinker bottle ink is available for other uses too!
Another question is which colors I use the most, and have to say honestly, I make use out of ALL the colors available and also love blending them. For the Magnolia images of course you need the skin and hair colors and for the scenes the blues, greens, yellows and browns, but then you need some reds, oranges and purples plus the black for shading to throw in here and there too! See....ALL of them!!!
Enjoy the day!!! Thanks for stopping by!
