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??

Could you use tap water to dilute if it is only on practice skin?

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!
