      Can I just say, to anyone who hasn't tried these, what great ink pads they are! I didn't get any for ages after the launch because I have the original distress inks (DIs) and thought the oxides (DOs) were just more of the same. They are not!

      Yes, you can use them for distress backgrounds - press the ink pad on a craft sheet, spray with water, swipe your card through it. But you can do so much more. They are "neater" than the DIs for stamping, you get a much clearer image, but you can still spray with water for a watercolour effect etc.

      They are opaque, so you can use them on dark cardstock. And (as long as you dry between layers) you can layer up contrasting colours without getting mud, so if you use a resist technique you can get fabulous effects.

      They are much smoother than DIs because of the pigment ink in the blend, so blended backgrounds are easier to do without the harsh lines I sometimes get from the edge of the applicator with DIs.

      Also because of the pigment ink, they are slower to dry so you can heat-emboss them.

      I've only done a bit of playing so far, haven't used them "in anger" much, but I am desperate to find the time to do so, because they are a dream to work with. I really recommend them.

      Thanks Mitzi. I've always 'ignored' them as I thought they couldn't be much different from the originals.

      I bought 5 just before Christmas and I've made a few backgrounds. They're definitely different.

      I think Tim himself said they will dry out quicker than DI. Has anyone noticed this? I’ve been thinking about buying some but have resisted so far because of this.

      I still have cosmic shimmers and cosmic paints that saw the light if day for about an hour
      as I was not sure what to do with them
      I won them in a competition along with loads of other stuff about 10+ years ago lol

      I haven't had them long enough or used them enough to know about drying up but I have bought some reinkers. So far the pads seem quite juicy.

      Did CC mean this or were they asking if they dried on the card quicker?

      The Oxides take longer to dry on the card than Distress Inks. That's why you can emboss with them. They dry to a chalky finish

      I did mean that - Mitziís understanding was right.
