Welcome to dickblick
These are opaque, waterbased inks for use on paper, photos, negatives, acetate, and artwork. They can be diluted for perfect washes, and can be used with a brush, pen, or airbrush. Mix Pro Black with Pro White to produce opaque, cool grays.
Pro White is a very opaque, white watercolor with superb covering power over colors that normally bleed through white ink. Use it to cover dye colors, markers, and all designer colors.

Not as I expected or hoped it would be

Comments about Daler-Rowney Pro Inks:
To be honest i was taking a risk with this ink, and I regret doing so now with this ink. I've been looking for a good ink to use for my dip pens and brushes when I ink my Comic and Manga Illustrations. And since I use watercolors, acrylics paints, and colored pencils to color my works I needed to know if this ink would be a good investment for what I do. I've found that this ink could be the WORST one to use. I first tested the ink to compare with two other inks, which I attached a scanning of the page in question. The first think i took notice to was that the ink was thick, almost like craft acrylic thick, but I figured it would be a good idea to dilute the ink to work with pens, however after going through the main tests I changed my mind. One of the major tests was to see if it was waterproof, This ink was EXTREMELY water-soluble when dry, almost like Sumi-Ink, and smeared heavily in the square I made. I also tried testing it with rubbing alcohol with a cotton-swab, the smearing was MUCH MORE WORSE than the water. The only good thing i found about it was that is 'could' be fadeproof but I'm not sure on that. I also prefer my inks to have a Matte finish, where this one had a glossy finish to it, but that's something I'm okay with. I could try it out again after diluting it with some water, but I don't have any major hopes that it'll be better when I read on the bottle that the ink is an "Opaque Watercolor", which is a major drawback for me. I won't suggest this to anyone else for inking, but for a person who does watercolors or Sumi-E I might consider suggesting them.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I originally thought that I would use a pen with this white ink but it was too thick so I used a brush which worked well for my project. However, this ink will not work well with a pen.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
One of my favorite white inks ever.
from Fairfax, Va
Absolutely one of my favorite comic inking white ink, I'm a comic book artist and this is so far in my top few white inks! I'm gonna use it to the last drop like I usually do when I test inks, but so far amazing, of course not every ink is the same, I encourage to do a lot of research before buying white inks because they all have different factors, like opacity, the ability to draw over it again and not get a weird blue line or it to be stiff and rough, the viscosity level (I prefer very high), and much more! I think the only thing that might come close to this quality of ink is maybe Copic opaque white, though remember that the copic is a higher price and still in my opinion is not as good. Other then that I think there is very little competition.
Thick and Opaque
This ink does exactly what I wanted it to do. Its a super thick, opaque ink. You can water it down but it loses its opaque-ness quite a bit. I haven't used it with a dip pen yet but it works well with my paint brush. I have also only used it for adding highlights.

As an artist and instructor, there are times when a 'touch of white' opaque paint is necessary in watercolors. Pro White has been that perfect white medium for little fixes, strong highlights without tearing the paper, and also mixing with colors as a more opaque tint. It also is a lovely snow technique when watered down and spattered over a wintery scene. Every student has a bottle in their tool box.
Does the job great
from Peoria, AZ
Very good at correcting even the darkest marks, and inks go over it nicely.
from Hayward, CA
I find this to be the best for touch up when working with pen and ink or any kind of inking on paper. It has a thick consistency so I just water it down slightly to extend the coverage. It is opaque. Perfect for illustrators and comic artist who need to make corrections or eliminate altogether.
from McKinney, TX
Ink is my favorite drawing medium, I have been reading and shopping inks, and don't want to restrict myself into ink pens. I was skeptical about this particular ink since they weren't reviewed online as much as other brand inks, but decided to try them out. The white ink is water soluble, so it appears as a mid tone over the black ink when diluted. I did an experimental sketch below. The bottom line is that if you love inking, you should try these out with brushes. (I purchased both black and white inks.)

Works great for splats.
By Michael Yakutis
from Crescent City, CA
My first time using this stuff and so far it's great. I use it primarily for splattering effects in my sequential art. Liberally apply it to a brush and flick it on the page, or use a toothbrush. A credit card works best for me.-Professional comic book artist-
