If I can get a sample then I'm doing it for sure because otherwise I have to drive 2 hours to get one/buy some from art primo...
And has anyone noticed that the Sakura Pen-Touch inks are practically buff-proof? Honestly, I can't write over it with my pilot because it just burns right through immediately. If you try enough, it still wont buff but it actually picks up the sakura ink and makes like a black/gold ink. Looks tight. I wish I could mix what's left in my sakuras with my pilot ink, but the sakuras are xylene-free so I don't think they'll mix too well.
Haven't tried painting over it though...
Yo it's because Sakura Pen-Touch inks are actually a xylene based pigment ink, which makes them act more like a paint. And when you're trying to write over a xylene-based pigment ink with an alcohol-based ink like Pilot ink, the pigmented ink will almost always burn through. For example, ever tried writing over a Decocolor with ink? Same reaction.
That being said, by no means are Sakura Pen-Touch inks "buff-proof." Wipe it down with a xylene-based cleaner once, and paint over it once, I guarantee it'll be buffed.
Also, you could definitely mix them. BUT- you would most certainly need a mixing ball. They would separate in your marker/mop quicker than oil and water if you catch my drift.
