Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Suzanne wants to know: 'What is a hybrid ink?"
A: As the name suggests, hybrid inks have a combination of properties that are characteristic of other inks. They dry quickly like dye inks, and have vibrant and saturated colors. They are opaque like a pigment ink. They are a great multi-purpose ink, because they won't bleed when used with water media, alcohol inks, or solvents. They're perfect for detailed images and layering stamps as well. They can even be used on fabric and canvas - they're permanent when heat set! What can't they do? Because they dry quickly, these inks can't be embossed, and they can't be used for watercoloring or other water-reactive techniques.
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Rita has a tip for the Black Ice Technique: "I would use a pair of tweezers to pick up and hold the cardstock and spoon up the embossing powder onto the card to help eliminate the possibility of leaving fingerprints."
