I was recently sent some of the Mix’d Media INX by none other than Ms. Donna Salazar herself! If you have not yet used these INX, you’re really missing out! They’re some of the juiciest inkpads I’ve ever used. I did a video comparing the differences between Distress Inks and the Mix’d Media INX.
I think that comparing them is kind of unfair since they’re very different, but thought that if I showed you all the differences between the two you would fall in love with both ink(x)s as I have! Distress Ink is transparent and moist dye-based ink while the Mix’d Media INX are juicy and fairly opaque pigment-based ink. Distress Inks react with water even after they’ve dried while the Mix’d Media INX are permanent once they dry.
As a mixed media artist, I’ve come to love paint and have pushed my inks aside to just occasional use. Thinking like a mixed media artist, I equate Distress Ink to watercolor paint whereas the Mix’d Media INX are more like acrylic paint. I love the vibrant colors of the INX as well as the ability to emboss with these super juicy ink pads!
Check out the video and tell me what you think.
