Ink Review

I got some Winsor & Newton ink (not a sponsor) and wanted to start using it but then I thought I should test it out and would like to share my results!

Winsor & Newton colored ink
*Waterproof:  No. BUT. Yes. 
Alcohol marker proof:  Yes

I noticed the ink bled when I applied watercolor over the dried ink. Though it looks like you can get cool effects with it, be aware that it will bleed when you apply water over it. HOWEVER! I applied watercolor to another piece that was let dry for several days and that experiment did bleed, but only a little bit. Not as drastically as the photo below.
I have some Copic markers (alcohol based markers) that I applied over the top of some dried ink and it didn't bleed, to my surprise.

I drew with it and it dries fairly quick and holds its pigment well when deluded with water. I only bought two colors, but they react the same.

久しぶり!

It's been a long time since I last posted to the blog. Been too caught up in school and enjoying my time in Japan. Also, baby foxes!

Flowers are in full bloom here and its getting warmer and warmer. BunBun has been gone for a year now and miss her a lot sometimes.

November is almost over...

Hello Internet.

I am currently abroad in Japan studying for college. It is very inspiring to have this opportunity! I won't be returning to Fairbanks until next year.
