opaque white
« on: April 08, 2011, 10:10:36 PM »

Well, could anyone recomment a brand of opaque white that covers dark colors really efficiently and does not clump?
I need it more for adding highlights instead of masking inking mistakes.

Thanks!   ;D

White ink is a little bit transparent, so it doesn't quite cover up. I use it for creating highlights on my marker colored pictures though, works good for that.

The only thin I've ever used is White-Out *blush* I'm afraid it clumps, leaves streaks, and is raised from the paper. It doesn't cover perfectly, but it's pretty good for office work.

Dr. P.H. Martin's Bombay white India ink.  BEAUTIFUL stuff, goes on smooth & covers most media as long as it's dry.

I usually use white acrylic colors for opaque white. Not bad, but sometimes I wish I had something that would cover up better.

I use Daler-Rowney Pro White - process white opaque watercolor.

I've tried using regular white gouache when I was a student, but the stuff was sticky, stringy, and clumped.  The gouache-master professors at my university all used Pro White, and I haven't used anything else in a couple decades.

Not sure if you're still looking for a good white highlight, but I like to use a Chinese White watercolor with very little water (just barely enough to wet the brush). The one I've been using most recently is the Windsor & Newton Cotman watercolors.

Another reason I like it is because you can very the opacity with the amount of water you use, so if you want a completely opaque line, you can have it, but if you just want to lighten up an area, you can do that too with the same tool.
