Default Talking about white ink

I just got the Hero Hues white dye ink (yes it is a dye ink) and used it on vellum and it dried by itself and it didn't smudge. It's not really dark but once I laid the vellum over my darker cardstock it shows up beautifully.

Every white pigment ink just didn't dry and zapping it with a heat gun - well vellum and heat - so not doing that again.

It didn't show up really well on dark cardstock and it didn't dry on acetate either. I guess I'll just have to stick to my Memories unicorn or Colorbox frost white pigment inks for dark cardstock. I haven't figured out how to get white on acetate yet.

No reinkers yet (I couldn't find any) but I do hope that they come out with a reinker soon.

(Sorry - I think this needs to be moved. I didn't realize I was in the organization forum. Thank you.)

I would recommend embossing with the white pigment ink. Either clear or white embossing powder would work. That will dry it without overheating your vellum.
