    I have a white pigment ink pad, but when I use it, it soaks into the paper and you can barely see it. Is there such a thing as a white ink pad that will show up really white and not fade into the background? Maybe I need a white chalk ink pad?

    White is a tough color. I noticed that with pens, too. I think a chalk one may work better.
    I have a white ink pad that came in a Karen Foster set and that one works pretty good.

    Barb if your white ink pad is a dye ink (water based) it will absorb into your paper more than a pigment ink based pad. Chalk ink is pigment ink so it will work better.

    I have the Colorbok white pigment ink pad. It doesn't really soak into the paper. My problem is that on red cs, it kinda turns pink.

    It's a pigment ink pad, but not a chalk one.

    Maybe a quick fix would be to emboss in clear or white. Just a thought

    Yeah, I can emboss in white, but sometimes I just wanted to use white ink and have it show. Why do they make white pigment ink pads if it doesn't show up? I'm trying to figure out the point of that, lol!

    I have a Stayzon white ink pad, but even it has been "transparent". But I may not have added enough ink to my pad (it comes with a separate ink bottle). Maybe making it "jucier" will help.

    Sorry, Cali4niaGirl, I don't think "juicier" will help. If your Stazon is like mine it says "opaque" so you CAN see thru it. I got a Jo's pigment ink white one that works much better.
