White Ink Comparison

Picked up a few new white ink products and I thought I'd add them to the list.

Deleter White 2 is opaque, permanent, and waterproof.  It's not as nice as say gouache or Bleedproof White.  The Uni-ball Signo gelpen is the best white gel-pen I've encountered (and I was in the 7th grade when gel-pens got popular in New Orleans, so believe me, I know a thing or two about white gel pens :cough love letters :cough).  It doesn't skip like other brands do, and it's much thicker and creamier.  I've been searching for a white brush pen for a couple years (and have had several failed attempts at making my own) and have finally found one.  It's similiar to white paint pens in that you have to pump it to get it going, but the brush tip is nicer than I expected, with individual bristles.  Unfortunate, the white isn't so nice and it doesnt really spread smoothly.
Highlights were added with a mixture of white brush pen and Signo gel pen.  The two do not play well together.
Pictures of products forthcoming, I'm in the middle of 2 page a day roughs right now.
