The best! The re-inkers are next!
Graduated from the 60 mini cube set. I love how smooth the ink dries and the best part is the color families. Makes my life so much easier. Now I have even more colors to play with! However, I do wish there were some bright orange and yellows. Bright may not be the right word but that why I like the Altenew grouping system.
As others have stated, the ink behaves beautifully and is wonderful for layering colors. Altenew does a very good job of grouping the colors together that work together so the yellow-greens are in a named group, the blue-greens are in a named group, etc. This makes arranging them in a ROYGBIV format easy. For a large set of inks, there is very little overlap in colors being similar to one another. Surprisingly, there are holes in the color groupings, most noticeably in the yellows, oranges, reds, and browns. Specifically, the rich, jewel, colors are missing (think autumn color palettes). Of note, as I swatched each color, the light colors (usually the first 2 in the color run) do not leave a discernible second-generation image.
Ok, so I love a few brands of ink. but the color range and quality of Altenew's inks mean I keep coming back to these most often. Having the sets of 4 shades of the same color makes layering stamps a breeze! The ink dries smoothly and evenly and always looks crisp and clean. I'm really happy with these!
These inks are awesome. Wonderful color range and great customer service!
