Tsukineko Dauber Duos
Advantages: good for detail
Dauber Duos are small, pen like ink pads.
I find them useful for ink on rubber stamps as the small end means you can ink different areas of the stamp different colours. For example, I have done a coloured rose by inking the flower red and the stem green. This wouldn't have been possible with a standard ink pad as you wouldn't be able to see where the ink was going or be precise enough to make a tidy ink print.
The Dauber Duo is double sided with a small round ink pad on each side. Usually the colours are both similar or different shades of the same colour. The Duos can be bought in a variety of colours. I haven't had a colour I needed that wasn't a Dauber Duo.
The ink is just like the ink you'd get from an ink pad but the pad part is a lot spongier than some ink pads. This makes it easy for the ink to come out but you have to be careful not to push too hard otherwise too much ink will be released.
Each end has a clear plastic lid so you can see exactly what colour your getting. This is important as some ink pads will show a colour on the front and be a different shade inside.
The lids stay on well and as a result the inks haven't dried out. This is vital as it's no good having a dry ink pad.
I have found these very useful for rubber stamping but it could also be used for stencilling.
Summary: a useful ink pad
