I kept all the color as close as possible in the range of red and oranges. First I tested the ink on plain white cardstock to see how easy it stamped and if it smeared when applied. I then tested if the ink has the ability to act as a watercolor. Refer to the video for full results.
I then tested each for the 8 inks on glossy paper and tested how well it stayed to the paper. Since stampers love to color in their stamped imaged I also tested each of the stamps with 4 types of markers:
Spectrum Noir in CG2 (light green)
Tombow Dual Brush Pens in 055 (yellow)
Copic Sketch in Y17 (yellow)
Faber-Castell PITT artist pen big brush in Dark Naples ochre 184.
For results please see with video above.
I will say that the Brutus Monroe inks were amazing for all these tests. I loved that they held up to different kinds of papers, that I could watercolor with them, and that they held up to 4 different kinds of markers without a fail!! Amazing inks!!
