I prefer using Dr Martens bleedproof white. You can dial in how thick or thin it is with water, and if you can get the consistency right, it will even work with a dip pen. The downside is it's not very portable since you need a brush/pen and some water, but it is my go-to when I'm in the studio. Those acrylic paint pens look promising and are the only ones I haven't tried out of your test. Will have to order some.

Thanks!

I don't use white out pens. Never have. Ok, in a pinch I've use a generic white out pen, but 99.9% of the time for corrections I use an electric eraser. I don't like inking over the white paint. It's not working on acrylic glass. I prefer the rough surface the electric eraser leaves. Of course you can only use the eraser a few times before your erase a hole in the paper. For effects and stuff? Pro White or some equivalent. It's water based so I can use it thick or thin. Use it when a pen, brush, or ruling pen.

It never occur to me i could just ERASE inks with a electric eraser, I'll have to try it.

It's much harder these days because the eraser strips (for ink) are MUCH harder to find. I bought a decent stash years ago on eBay. These days? Ugh.

Used one of the AKARUED on an acrylic painting recently. It's got really good converage...didn't consider it for comics work though. Thanks.
