Default Watercoloring w/Ink ?

Which SU ink do you use (Classic or Craft) when watercoloring or does it matter?

From this newbie - thanks in advance!!!

I have never used craft just classic. But I am curious if the craft would work have to try it and see.

I have both the Craft spots (3 families) and a Classic spot (soft subtles). They both work fine for me when watercoloring. I just wipe a little ink on the inside of a yogurt lid and lift with wet brush. The reason I have both types is b/c I ordered the soft subtles way before the others. I didn't know there were different types at that time. The IN Colors are all Classic and I don't have a problem with those either.

HTH!

I've used craft (pigment) inks cause that mostly all that I have. It's a little bit harder to make the ink move around. I think the dye (classic) inks will feather and move better. I'd say the most important thing for getting good results with watercoloring is the paper. Watercoloring paper is best.

Maybe someone will see this thread and do a comparison on their blog so that you can visually see the difference.
