It’s been a frustrating day at Raven Towers.
In preparation to move my caricature work into a Watercolour folio, I wanted to find some proper waterproof ink (as you know, I use watercolour for the base of my caricature sketches, and having waterproof ink is a must). So, here is what I’ve tried…
The results were dissapointing…..
As you can see, virtually everything apart from the W&N and the pigment markers wasn’t waterproof – even ink that specifically said that it was.
So, I’m left using either pigment markers, or W&N if I want to use brush or dip pen – fountain pens are OUT (a real shame, as I like my Rotring Artpens…) I might have to try some Rotring drawing ink and compare that…
