    What I find interesting is the fact that the ink I use flows worse through my Infinity than the Wicked does- but now I can't remember if I thinned the ink or not. You would think the ink would be really thin and fine, but really its a lot like Wicked!

    Oh by the way, how old is the paint you are using?

    If you were asking me I use both, detail sprays better but being transparent line it lacks coverage. Etac sprays opaque better than Wicked Detail

    Thats what I asking- its the Wicked thats giving you trouble. I once tried spraying straight Wicked thru my Infinity... the stains are still all over my painting table! But thinning it 1:1 it flows just fine. I have no clue why yours gives you trouble. One of those weird things I guess?

    As a note here, I only have the primary set. Idk if that has anything to do with it or not. White and black both do fine.

    I've had the most experience with HOKs, but I'm soon going to be using some Testors, Vallejo Model Colors, and some Tamiya paints as well. My wife grabbed a Creatix Primary Colors pack for me a few years ago - I can't say I really liked using them, but I was spoiled with the HOK paints, but I will be giving Creatix another shot in earnest (see what I did there?).

    I've never had a problem with tip dry on the white. Are you using the high flow

    There is a guy on Facebook with a YouTube channel that uses inks and does a lot of interessting how to on portraits. https://www.youtube.com/user/paintedglyphs333
    I don't follow it too closely but he really does good work and I know he is using India inks.

    m3ntalo - thanks for the link. He does do some very good portraits from what I've just skimmed over! It looks like his videos are live streams at about 2 hours apiece, but I'm sure I can learn something not only about inks but his approach to art in general. Thanks again. - rick
