Just my humble opinion...

This is a comparison of two inks that are great to USE WITH COPIC MARKERS! I have been using Nick Bantock ink in Lamp Black (by Ranger) for a LONG time. It was the ink I first used with Copics.. Then everyone said, "Try Palette!! It's the best!!!" and it wasn't... So I went back to Nick. Then everyone said "Try Memento! It's definately the best!!!" So I did.. And it's not! I'm sorry... Here's why:

"My ink" is just darker. A true black. And trust me, I stamped the same way and both
pads are juicy!



And side-by-side.

I think the results are pretty clear! Give this ink a try and let me know what you think!!
(And NO I don't work for Ranger... I WISH! I just wanted to let you know what I like
about "my ink.")

  1. I've never seen this kind of ink..where do you get it? and your copics don't bleed?
    Very interesting!!

  2. I stronly agree Memento Ink doesn't stamp clear and richly as the ink you use. I disregarded Memento Ink after a few uses. Everyone else I know still uses it and recommends it???!!! I like using Brilliance Ink and heat set it.

  3. LOL I haven't ever heard of this ink either.... but wow that is BLACK huh?? Thanks for the heads up!

  4. Thanks for the tip. You're right. Now, do I really want ANOTHER black ink?

  5. Try Versafine Black Onyx...you'll be wowed!

  6. @Shemaine.. I edited my post to say that these inks are great for Copics. Versafine is a great detail ink, but not good with alcohol markers.

  7. Thanks for the information. I just got my FIRST copics so need all the advice I can get....A big difference in your comparison.
