One of the really fun products in the new CTMH Idea Book are Mini Pigment Ink Pad Sets. These ink pad sets come in a tower of 10 colors. The sets correspond with the new color families of Basics, Enchantment, Adventure and Whimsy. All of the great CTMH 40 colors are are included in one of these categories. Colonial White and White Daisy are the "go to" neutrals and they are not included in color families but are still readily available.
Many people have asked what you do with pigment inks. Well, pigment inks are more opaque than the traditional dye based variety and are made to "sit" more on top of the paper. Because of this, they are slower drying and can be used for heat embossing! What these towers now means to us is that we now can include embossing on our projects in all of the wonderful CTMH colors by using the pigment inks and clear embossing powder! :o)
Pigment inks are also great for Home Decor and 3D projects because of the intense color. I decided I wanted to give my new inks a rigorous try by putting them to the test on a canvas board.
My vote is that the Mini Pigment Stamp Pad Sets are great! With the option to have embossing in ever color, along with the ability to stamp on canvas our creative possibilities are endless. Remember, pigment inks are "thicker" and take longer to dry. If you have any questions about using the Pigment Inks, please ask me. For Now, Happy Crafting!
