    I have used regular inks and dyes to distress with. What I want to know is for those of you that have a distress ink pad. What is the difference between that and say that same color in a regular ink pad? Would you say the color looks faded out when it's dry? Or what? I am looking to buy the entire collection on sale but I want to make sure they are enough different from what I allready have to make it worth the purchase. TIA!!!

    Thanks Zig, but I don't really want to ask him if his stuff is worth it at 50% off lol. I guess I'm just going to go buy them and I'll only open one to try it out and I'll let you know.

    Ah, I got to buy 17 of them today and I have already played with some of them! What makes them different is that you can mist the suckers after you ink something and the ink spreads out and leaves a color gradation that looks REALLY, REALLY cool! I am totally enabling you Lori- go get them, lol! The scrap that I played with looks really, really old and partially burned, which was the look I was going for. I showed it to DH and DD and they both said, "wow, that looks old and like it was burned". Mission accomplished. Plus, the colors are really rich and vibrant, go on very smoothly too. I think they are totally worth having now that I have tried them out.

    Barb I probably am going to go ahead and get them lol. I can justify this because I don't have a ton of ink pads. But just fyi mist your work after you ink it with your other dye ink pads, you'll get a cool result with them too I've never tried the pigment inks.
