Default Re: Thinning Inks

yeah, sorry I should have specified, most pigments have glycerine and alcohol in them. I found that if I mix alcohol or water I get a washed out look, if I mix withan alcohol or witch hazel with a tiny bit of glycerine it will keep a solid color, but if you are not using pre dispersed like star brite, but like a waverly and you want it to be a little easier to use but not loose the giant punch in the face color, cut with what is suspending your pigment with a little more witch hazel and it shouldn't wash out, so like a drop of glycerine to two drops of witch hazel. recipes are a pain in the ass so it will take some fine tuning
