Hi guys,

I start using intenze opaque white for highlights on my practice pieces, seems to work great on fake skin, is the opaque white suitable for highlights? Or would a plain white work just as good?
Also will the opaque white be suitable to mix with black to make a grey?

Thanks

Hi Tristan, I have no clue where you are in your learning process, but it's important to know that white works very differently in fake skin and human skin. Not that it's not useful practicing with in on fake skin, on the contrary. But it doesn't stay as white on human skin when healed.

I can't speak for the intense opaque white, I've only used regular white (Radiant white, which is considered a good white) but as beige skin will grow over it when tattoo is healing, that sort of speaks for itself. It will never stay particularly white.

Hiya,

Yes ive been practicing for a while and i feel i am ready to do a little tester piece on my self, ive already got tattoos with white in it and it has faded into a pale white which makes the black pop. I was just curious as to if anyone uses opaque white in highlights on real skin or if not what kind of white is good?

i've never used intenze whites but i don't see why it couldn't be used for adding highlights. My only concern would be the thickness. Just out of personal preference, I like my pigments more on the fluid side....

I think opaque white is what you want really ,to make it stand out ,if you thin it it would become more translucent and I’m sure it’s fine for mixing with colours

I use fusion white. Don't like eternal white wasnt too keen on dynamic white. Best one for me is fusion but like anything it's what works for you

Honestly - did anyone use any white that healed other than nicotineish? I've tried bloodline and radiant white. Healed nicotineish. Could be my technique of course.
