I attached three pictures showing the bee and the 3 lighter metallic colors on black paper. You can see that the darker metallic colors don't show up as well on the darker paper -- maybe if they were embossed!? NONE of the metallic colors in these 2 pictures are embossed.
I have now tried them with a gel medium. You MUST embossed to use a gel medium. The bee came out fine, but the unembossed metallic colors smeared a little -- but not too much. So, yes, emboss.
I will be purchasing more.
Newer to Stamping: These pigment inks are thick with good coverage, but you will really need heat to get them to dry well if there is a lot of color in a certain area of the image. My flowers on the color template were damp for hours after I stamped it. These are great for using with embossing powders or to color a stamp with multiple colors since they take so long to dry. The ink is so thick that it really uses a lot of water/cleaner with wipes/washing/towels to get the cracks and crevices of the stamps clean. I typically use Momento (dye) or the Distress (also pigments) inks for most of my images and clean up is easier. If you are wanting textures of fingerprints or footprints to show up this ink might look like more of a blob since it's so moist and thick and can spread compared to the Dye ink pads. If you want a detailed image in a pigment ink you might want to try Versafine ink pads but you loose color options with it. Most actual stamp images will be fine. As far as Colorbox's advantages, I can see how this ink pad could stay moist and useable for years. ;) I haven't purchased a petal point pad version of Colorbox before and stamped an image in the center to see what the rainbow effect would look like. I have some of the Kaleidacolor pads and was curious to see if the effects were similar. I'm happy to say they are similar, but keep in mind the Kaleidacolor pads are dye vs pigment in these, so they fulfill different needs in a way.
New to Petal Point: I always thought that you had to grab the pad themselves to use these stamps. I am happy to say that's not the case which the Petal Point version which means less mess. They wedge pads are attached to a thin plastic tab that slides in and out of the base. When you turn them over to use them it's almost like you have a doll sized iron to apply the ink with. For less mess, be sure to have a craft mat or surface to be able to lay the wedge's down onto if you might not want to slide them back in immediately or want to use several colors at once since there's no way these wedges can sit out on their own without getting some ink on the surface. Be careful when you put the lid back on to make sure the edges of the petal curves line up for a less ink streaked lid. The instructions on the bottom recommend that you use this ink to emboss on coated or non-absorbent papers.
Incidental Finding: The 3rd and 4th pictures show how the side of the pink wedge had a trace of purple ink on it. You can see on the template that it didn't affect the color when it stamped since it was only on the side of the wedge and didn't spread to the top.
