Please, can anyone tell me exactly what is a hybrid inK and how it differs from dye, pigment, distress, etc., and what techniques to use it with. I visited MFT's site and saw they have these new "hybrid" inks. Is this what StampinUp's inks are now that go with the "firm foam pads"? I'm bewildered!
Hybrid inks are a combination of dye and pigment ink.
it dries fast (so not good for embossing) but may need heat setting on something like glossy paper. Should also be waterproof.
Generally dye ink is a little thinner than pigment ink. So I am guessing that a hybrid is also thicker than dye ink, but works much the same way as dye ink does...so probably better coverage but still fast drying.
