This is the first ink pad I purchased from Altenew. I am very impressed! The pad is very juicy. The ink covers really well.
I am amazed how glittery it looks! It shimmers like gold. I am blown away. I used it on a card I just made. It has a stamp of two little sisters side by side and some text. I used the pigment for both. I stamped the two little girls first and they shimmer and are so clear.
Then I did the sentiment. The text is clear and shimmers. I could have left it like that, but decided to stamp the text again and it became richer. I stamped the text 4 times and it really pops out and coordinates so well with the two little girls. The more I stamped over it, the bolder it got. It retained its clear text images and glimmered more and more. It was not necessary to re-stamp 4 times, I just wanted to try it.
I did not realize it was pigment when I purchased. The other pigments I bought took days to dry to the touch. This dried to the touch quickly. It also is not chalky like the other pigments I have.
I will definitely be buying more of this ink. Yep, more. I highly recommend it.
