Talking Best ink to use w COPIC markers

I have tried several inks, heat set and not heat set, and the ink still bleeds when I use my markers. I have used most recently Ranger jet black and sepia pads. Heat set and not heat set. I have tried to find an India ink pad but cannot find one. I used to get Superior brand. So any suggestions. Next thought was to change paper. I have used watercolor, STAMPIN UP whisper white and very vanilla and some other card stocks. The two SU ones were recommended on a thread I was reading as usable. Thanks for any help.

Karen, we recommend using a dye ink... and one of our favorites is Memento by Tsukineko. No heat setting needed. HTH

I use the Adirondack dye inks (usually Espresso) or Brilliance Graphite Black - it's a pigment ink but pretty fast drying and if I'm in any doubt, a quick blast with a heat gun and I've never had a problem with it.

My preference is Memento (color: Tuxedo Black). There are some techniques that use a softer color of the Memento ink and they look great, too.
