Ink

IC Comic inks are specially designed for Manga illustration. They are a true opaque black (not dark gray, like many other inks), and they dry quickly. IC inks sit on top of the paper, so lines do not get blurred by the fibers of the paper.

Ink Tips

Dip your nib in the ink just above the opening. If you dip too much, simply wipe it off and try again.

Scratchy lines may be caused by your ink. If you leave the cap open for a long time the water with evaporate and make the ink thicker, clogging the nib. Take a dropper and add water one drop at a time until your ink is rehydrated.
