Brutus Monroe Ink Test Lab - Part 2: Canvas, Burlap, Plastic, & Glass

Erin Reed

I wanted to test the Brutus Monroe Chalk Inks on various surfaces to see if the ink would stay on canvas, burlap, plastic, and glass.  I also did the same tests on a variety of other inks in my Brutus Monroe Ink Test Lab Part 2.

So for these tests I did a video to show how they all compered against each other.  Brutus Monroe is offering an amazing deal for all Chalk Ink Pads plus Chalk Ink Re-inkers for the next couple months - a 20% off your ink purchase

Plus here is the best part, you have a chance to win a set in mini chalk inks for just subscribing to my YouTube Channel, full details are on my channel, but there will be 4 winners, each receiving one set of 4 mini chalk inks!!  Amazing!!! Here is my video.

 

Right now there are 16 colors of Chalk inks available.

The inks I tested were Brutus Monroe Chalk ink in Wagon, Ranger Distress ink in Fired Brick, StazOn in Pumpkin, Dare 2B Artzy in Red, Studio G Chalks in Red, Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink in Tangerine, Prima Quick Dry fluid chalk ink in Brick Wall, and Prima Resist Chalk Edger in Rose Bud.  I kept all the color as close as possible in the range of red and oranges.

Test 1 - Canvas

I tested each of the 8 inks on a Canavs Corp Brands square of white canvas material.  I tested if it smeared when it was first stamped, how well it heat set, and if it bled when water was sprayed on it.  For results please see the video.

Test 2 - Burlap

I tested each of the 8 inks on a Canvas Corp Brands square of ivory burlap material.  I tested if it smeared when it was first stamped, how well it heat set, and if it bled when water was sprayed on it.  For results please see the video.

Test 3 - Plastic

I tested each of the 8 inks on a section of acrylic plastic sheet.  I tested if it smeared when it was first stamped, how well it heat set, and if it bled when water was sprayed on it.  For results please see the video.

Test 4 - Glass

I tested each of the 8 inks on a section of a glass pane.  I tested if it smeared when it was first stamped, how well it heat set, and if it bled when water was sprayed on it.  For results please see the video.

I will say that the Brutus Monroe inks were amazing for all these tests.  I loved that they held up to different kinds of surfaces and are holing up tho the name of an all purpose ink!!  Amazing inks!!
