Ink comparisons

I thought it might be helpful for an ink comparison of some of the darker more neutral colours.  I used my dye and pigment inks to give you an idea of their coverage and their hues.

You can see the difference between Memento's Tuxedo Black ink and Versafine Black Onyx, for example.  Versafine is a much richer more opaque ink that really coats the stamp giving good coverage.
Some are VERY different in colour - for example, even though Hero Arts mid tone wet cement would seem to be a gray/grey tone, it is more of a browney or taupey gray/grey if that makes sense. 
You can see how saturated the colour of the camera is in this picture - if I had used Tuxedo Black, it would've been splotchy but Versafine Black Onyx worked perfectly!

So what are your go to neutral inks?  Do you prefer dye inks or pigment?

Inks: Hero Arts mid tone; Versafine; Memento
