Hey! I have a quick question I've been meaning to ask you for a while now. Earlier this year, maybe late last year, there was a thread about pen & ink in the General forums. I remember you said you had issues with the coverage on the Hunt or Higgins india ink, and I was wondering if you could recommend a particular brand with better coverage?

I have a big bottle of Higgins india ink that won't be empty for a while, but I was still thinking of trying another brand when it ran out. I sometimes need to cover large areas w/flat black and I'm finding it takes 2-3 coats.

Hey there. Yeah, unfortunately, anything with the Higgins name on it seems a bit diluted. It's a bummer, since my former favorite was Sandford's Design black ink, which has since been enveloped into the Higgins line.

I've had a bit better luck with Speedball Super Black waterproof, but I still allow it to evaporate and condense a bit before using, just to be safe. The Winsor & Newton drawing inks aren't bad, but since they use a shellac in their formula, it dries with a bit of a shine, which I'm not particularly fond of. I've been wanting to try Sennelier ink for awhile. I've heard good things, and I would hope that the higher price would equal higher quality.

I wonder how good sumi inks would do, or whether or not I should take up grinding inks myself, but I'm not that far into experimenting with it at this point. I've also recently been toying with the idea of trying screen printing ink as drawing medium, since lately I've been doing a lot of brush work, and I doubt I'd have much problem with the thicker quality of that kind of ink using such a method.

I don't know if any of that helps, but that's what I've got on my end.
