The rest would be colored inks from Impress or Amuse Studios. Their quick dry pigment inks are absolutely, hands down, fantastic for all kinds of stamps and paper! I use a combination of clear and rubber stamps, and always had trouble with inks for clear stamps. But Fresh Inks and Amuse inks give me crisp, clear, vibrant impression all the time. I love 'em and when I get ALL the colors eventually, I'm tossing all my other dye inks.
I like to apply inks to the edges of my layers to add depth and softness - would pigment ink do well for this application? I've never tried a pigment ink for that yet... never occurred to me!! I have only used pigment inks for use with embossing powders.
