I have a question, is there much difference between alcohol based and acrylic inks, or do you use acrylic inks so that you can use it with acrylic paint?

@Fufluns As far as i'm aware alcohol inks are more flexible. I've only ever tried cheap calligraphy inks before acrylic but you have to be really careful as one misplacement of water can ruin everything and you'd have to work fast to fix it. However you can get some really nice effects with mixing colours etc that way. It reminded me of watercolour and I was no good at that xD
Acrylic inks however are handy if your someone who likes more control over what you are doing and prefer to get line art down first. I use Daler Rowney acrylic artists inks and once it dries it is permanent, meaning no amount of water placed over it will make the lines budge. Which means I can line art, erase my sketches and then colour all I like before retouching up the line art. The colours are just as vibrant as well.

I hate buying new nibs! I have yet to get over the do I burn away the protective layer of oil? do I let it sit? Do I rub it away? WHAT DO I DO!?

So i've come to the conclusion I prefer the oil to not be there however burning it away bends my nibs, so I wait for it to naturally break down from use and then I cry when my nibs need replacing because I have to go through this all over again.
