Bugpins for color

Posted by Davis on 11/12/10

I have never used bug pins before but I have heard great things about them in black washes but what about color? Are they good for color too? I am using Fusion ink so it is not as thick as Waverly so i am guessing it would be more capable to work with that color ink but I am not sure

I do not think bugbins are a good idea for color ink because there too thick for the groupings.

hey man, you can still acheive saturation with bug pins but it takes a shit load of time to do it, i just rock with my standard mags for full saturation and use my bug pins for blending and black n grey, bug pins= smaller holes so less area of coverage and there blunter than standard mags so you can do multiple passes without trauma (if you know what your doing) but also doesnt put ink in as well as standards,all depends on what your trying to do with the peice really dude

im starting to get away from bugpins, they make everything take longer, i have found that if i whip everything out, my blends are just as if not smoother than with the bugpins, but to each their own.

I use bugpin curves on anything over a thirteen, seems to reduce resistance from the skin and I haven't had any problems with saturation or slowing down. I'd have to give this one over to a case of personal preference, try them and if you don't like them use something else.
