I went in to @Riotartcraft at Loganholme the other day to get some blending card/paper to use with my alcohol markers. They were lovely, and convinced me to get stuff I was 80% sure was not right. I tried it when I got home and I was right, it is completely incompatible (as in the pic). 😡
I messaged them on FB and asked if they actually stock the item I am after and can I exchange even though I used a sheet of it.
Their response was simply recommending the exact same product they had already incorrectly sold me... sigh... stupid part is that they stock their own brand of alcohol markers!!?! In the pic, the bottom left is their 'recommended' paper (top left was a test on normal printer paper!!) and the results are clearly less than ideal. On the right are the same markers on the back of some scrap glossy 200gsm card... not great, but better than the stuff they sold.
I am only learning to use the markers but it is frustrating all the same! I have usually had pretty good service there but I think from now on I will be going to ArtShed! 😡
