I'm doing a little art project (specifically, a kid's story book for my cousins) and wanted recommendations on some inks. I usually work in water color, but I'm interested in exploring the potential of ink as a medium as well.
Specifically, I'm looking recommendations of inks that are either very intensely vibrant ("saturated" in the traditional sense), have a high degree of shading, or produce an interesting sheen or sparkle. The particular color doesn't matter, I'm looking to combine a wide palette. I want things that really create visual draw or intricacy. I'll be doing it on Tomoe river paper so feathering/bleed through won't be a concern.
Some examples of the type of inks I like:
Noodler's Baystate Blue
Private Reserve DC Electric Purple
High Level of Shading
Rohrer & Klinger Alt-Goldgrun
Private Reserve Avocado
Noodler's Navajo Turquoise
Interesting Sheen or Sparkle
J. Herbin Emerald de Chivor
Graff von Faber-Castell Moss Green
Robert Oster Fire & Ice
Thank you all for your recommendations! With so many inks and ink reviews, it's maddening making choices.
