Put your paint tubes away and take out your Higgins Pigment-Based Ink. It’s time to break out of your comfort zone. The unique Higgins bottle has a color-dropper cap that saves you from an anticipated mess. The pigments allow the ink to dry slowly to a semi-gloss sheen. Add more water to the ink on your page, and you’ll get a few more hues of color that you didn’t have before. Try your ink with the Connoisseur Round Taklon All Media Brush.
