I think i ruined it with the shading, The problem was using a 5mag in an open ended tip on a stealth rotary machine.

I outlined with a 3RL and then switched (after the mag) to a 9RS
I will have another go in the week :)

I will put that advice into action. I take it you dilute the black with distilled water? or would you introduce some white into the black??

Hi,
the lettering looks great - but as others already said, bit tooooo heavy on the shading! kuro sumi mid grey wash for shading is lovely and a big ish bottle only about *£15 - saves all the mixing too!
