Default Metallic Ink Pads?

I have always had bad luck with metallic ink pads--not drying, making a huge mess etc. What are the best brands for gold and silver? Thanks!

I really like the Encore pads that SU sells. If you heat set or emboss them you won't have problems with them not drying...although I have found the Encore pads to dry better than other metallic inks that I have in other brands.

I agree. I love the Encore pads.I have the gold, silver,and copper. Just hit them with a heat gun or emboss with clear or matching EP and you shouldn't have any problems with them smearing etc. I especially like to use them at Christmas.They just say"festive" to me.
Happy Stamping!

Thank you--I'll have to give the Encore pads a try. I totally agree about how Christmas-y gold and silver are. This chilly weather is putting me in the mood!
