IC Comic inks are specially designed for Manga illustration. They are a true opaque black (not dark gray, like many other inks), and they dry quickly. IC inks sit on top of the paper, so lines do not get blurred by the fibers of the paper. The IC Drawing Pen Nibs product line includes four types of dipping pen nibs. Each pen nib is unique and will give you different results. Use them to find out their strengths and weaknesses. Before you use your new set of nibs, use a tissue to wipe off the coating of oil gently before dipping it in ink! IC Drawing Pen Holders are simply a wooden body that accepts the pen (nib) and allows you to grip it and maintain control while drawing. The IC Draft Blue Mechanical Pencil uses non-photocopy blue lead. This is the same blue color that the Manuscript Paper is printed with, so it won’t show up on photocopies. You can sketch your drawings and then ink over them without having to erase!
