Essence will never compromise the pigment or its chemical composition. It allows for smoother gradient transitions via the ability to change the viscosity and opacity thus achieving the infinite shades and blends that your clients desire. It can be used separately by dipping into or can be directly mixed with a pigment in an ink cap or pigment cup.
As an added benefit, Essence prevents your pigments from evaporation keeping them at their optimum state regardless of climate conditions. During long procedures, a drop of Essence will also reconstitute the natural formation of a dry film that can form on top of pigment.
