Thank you for making this! Ever since I got mine, I've been thinking I bought the wrong brand because I have to be so careful to get a consistent white line. I am so glad/relieved that you mention right at the beginning that skips and inconsistency will most likely happen with any!
I will definitely be trying some of those alternatives.
I have heard so much about whether it is right to use white or not in watercolour but I don't think it really matters. Art is what you make of it. I'm a newbie on Deviantart and I enjoy following you so much. Your tutorials have made me a lot more confident not just in following your directions but also to have a go at my own art. As you say, your tutorials take a lot of time to prepare, I for one appreciate all the effort that you and others got through to make art easier for others. And for that I thank you very much ♥
I've heard artists saying all the good things about gouaches, but personally I didn't get to try it out yet. The first decision was between white ink and gouache and I chose the permanent opaque ink, ever since I didn't need to look for alternatives, it's perfectly suitable for both hard and fluid media (:
brilliant, i alwasy thought my gel pens were a bit dodgey, think you just inspired a bit of confidence in me (but maybe not enough to upload any of my watercolours with white gel pen ....truely dodgey!) many thanks, great as always!
