Sailor Kiwa Guro nano ink?

Has anyone of you used Sailor's nano ink for sketching? What are your experiences of it? Can you use it with a watercolour wash without the ink dissolving? How long does ir have to dry before adding the wash?

I have a bottle but have not used it much. When brushing over a line with a wet brush it makes a grey wash.

I have also been thinking about if nano particles can be hazardous. I have heard that people working with it in industries must wear protective clothes not to come in contact with it. A few years ago there was a diskussion about it in media as it was being used for several purposes and was said to be hazardous.

Hi there - sorry I have never used (nor heard of) Sailor's nano ink. Hope someone comes along shortly.

Someone at FPN has tried this ink and says it is waterproof.

It seems to depend on the paper. A paper with sizing makes it not waterproof.
