So these will not work with Copic's? If not does anybody know why? My understanding is Vivid is the same type of ink as Memento? Or not?? I am so overloaded with ink information! HELP!!!!

Dianne, Vivid is dye based ink and when combined with an alcohol marker (Copics) it will smear. I really love the Vivid ink and am looking to add to my collection. It works beautifully with clear stamps and gives such a vibrant look with any stamp! It is easy to get overloaded with information and this is a newer ink to me and honestly I love it! I picked up two new colors last night at Hobby Lobby, just because I am so impressed! HTH!
Ok, now I'm confused. Memento is a dye ink too and it works perfectly with Copics. I

Aahh! Now I am confused :o) You are right Lynn!

Reading the back of the Memento ink it says" stamped impressions once dried are water resistant and will not migrate"...it also says it is "fast drying on most papers"

The Vivid doesn't say that...or much at all other than "ideal for glossy or coated papers."
Oh, Gina....HELP! :o)

Hummmmmmmmmmmm, very interesting. What is in the Memento ink that works so well with copic Sounds like a phone call is in order. If I find out anything I will let you know.

Again, hummmmmmmm!! Does this mean we can use Memento to ink up a ceramic tile? I will find out when I call. I can't call until I get home but as soon as I find out I will let ya' know. Unless someone else responds first.
I stamped a basketball image using the Red Vivid ink pad and the Black Memento and colored them both with a Y23 Copic. The Vivid stamped image of the basketball blurred just a smidge (but not much). MAybe someone else will better be able to explain :o) I know I love Memento with Copics and there are so many colors.
No, I don't think a dye ink would work with ceramic tiles because a dye ink is water based...get it wet and it smears.

I am subscribing as I'm wondering the same thing. For some of us who don't use Copics (yet), which one is best for pencil/OMS technique? And which one for watercoloring?
OK I am confused because I like memento ink and I was going to buy the vivid ink but I used copic markers alot.
HI guys,
Let me try to help.

Memento ink is a fabulous ink for use with Copics because it requires no heat setting. That's a big plus because, if you are lazy, like me, you want to stamp and go.
Memento ink has matching markers which is another great thing.

Vivid ink can also be used with Copic markers but will require heat setting, just like Brilliance Ink, Palette Ink and almost any othe dye ink.

Vivid comes in way more colors and as we add more card stock colors, we want more ink color variety but we don't want to reinvent the wheel. We didn't feel the need to contact Clearsnap to have them repackage ink pads when they already have fabulous colors that coordinate with most card stock colors.

Vivid ink is the ONLY ink that I have tried, and I have tried them all, that you can use with clear stamps and there is no stamp conditioning is required. Stamp conditioning is when you take an eraser and rub it over the clear stamp to help remove a residue left on from the manufacturing process. Up until I tried Vivid ink, I had to condition all of the clear stamps I purchased, even when using those clear stamps with ink pads distributed by the company who made the stamps. The ink just bubbled up and left a blotchy image at best. Vivid is crisp and bright and you can use the stamps right out of the package.

I colored a butterfly tonight using Vivid black heat set ink and light green and yellow Copics. No smearing at all.

As far as tiles are concerned, you need to use a solvent based ink like Stazon because water based dye inks will smear when wet.
Thank you Gina! I was so interested in this when Lynn pointed out they were both dye and I went..oh, yeah!
Great detailed explanation. Know wonder the Vivid ink smeared a bit when I tried it with Copics, I should have heat set it.
Thank you Gina! This is all so confusing. I don't mind buying different ink pads....just not all of them in every color everyone has, KWIM. This gives me the direction I needed.

This site really rocks. I really enjoy brainstorming! Thanks to everyone's reply.
Ok... so I can use ANY Momento ink with my Copics???
