Alcohol Ink Art

My intent was to do some posts on all the crafts made with ink, but I had no idea there were so many gorgeous projects that could be made with alcohol ink.

There are several differences between alcohol ink and the other, regular types of ink.

Alcohol ink is waterproof, doesn't fade over time, and can be used on non-porous surfaces such as glass, tile, metal, foil, glossy paper, plastics, acrylics, and many more. Yes, even on paper on which it will have no negative effects.

The alcohol ink is translucent, adheres and dries quickly, can be used straight out of the bottle or be diluted with rubbing alcohol, and is simple to mix with its many other colors. You can create some wonderful patterns and effects, which will have a shiny, metallic finish.

When used diluted, the colors will be more subtle and also blend easier, but keep in mind that the metallic effect will be diminished.

Using the acid-free ink is real easy and simple and applying the ink can be done through several different methods.

You can use felt to dab it onto the surface, use a specifically designed applicator, pad, or stamp, spray it on, or you can put it directly onto the project.

Make sure to ventilate well when using alcohol ink, because the smell is rather strong. People won't have to wonder where you are; they can smell you out in no time!
