Not Always Bleedproof
Comments about Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleedproof White:
I've been using Dr. Ph Martin's Bleedproof White with dip pens and brushes for a number of years. I love the control I have with it, the ability to produce fine detail, and it's ability to cover a range of media, and it's been my go-to white for most projects. I recently used it to accent a journal page covered with black gesso and Verithin colored pencils. Weeks later, I did a not very wet watercolor directly onto the paper on the reverse of the gessoed mixed media page. Much to my disappointment, the "Bleedproof" white dissolved and transferred to the adjoining artwork, completely ruining both pages. Because there was so much time between completion of the mixed media page and the WC, I know the white was completely dried. It was affected solely by the moisture from the WC, which again, was not very wet when applied.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This stuff is AMAZING! Tested it against Copic V09 and it only took two layers to cover it up, with NO bleed-through. I'd never used the Martin's bleed-proof white before and I wish I had--wouldn't have wasted my time on Higgins or the Bombay white for cover-ups.FYI: this stuff is densely packed and you only need to work up a bit at a time. I use a Pentel wash brush (just poke the tip in, swirl it a few times until the area around the tip is the consistency of heavy cream). Only downside is that you HAVE to affix it ASAP as otherwise it'll get gummy and pick up dirt super easy.

Best opaque white for pen calligraphy.

Best in its category
This product lives up to its reputation as a wonderfully opaque ink and is indeed just perfect for calligraphy on dark paper. It truly is the best in its category in terms of its opacity. If you're looking for a white ink that works well with the pointed pen. This is THE ONE. You will need to add a few drops of water to make it thin enough as it comes quite thick. Just stir the water into the top surface only, about half an inch or so.Highly recommended!
from you already know

Wonderful white ink
from Hoover, Alabama
This is my second jar. It lasts forever. I use it for calligraphy pointed pen projects. You can adjust the fluidity by the amount of water you add. Flows nicely.

first time purchasing - not disappointed
from northern california
nice coverage, even over thick black ink lines. use this to tidy up any stray pen & ink lines and it is fabulous.
Very thick, excellent coverage.
from Nashua, NH
This ink is quite thick. I use a toothpick to stir it and then it flows nicely. As others have noted, this product is great for watercolor highlights. True white, excellent coverage.

Dr. Martin's is Great for Calligraphy
By Sally Sanders
from Arizona and Virginia
This is my favorite white for calligraphy. It flows well through the pen and has good solid coverage. I thin it with water for my small .5mm nibs and it is still able to cover most black surfaces , paper or paints, in one stroke.
