Video…. A New Way of using Alcohol Inks?

This week is Alcohol Ink week over at the Craft Barn Blog.
Here is a video I have made for the Wishing Well using Alcohol Inks in a slightly different way.
This technique is very similar to marbling, but gives a more subtle effect using Adirondack Alcohol Inks.
The results are very random and give really interesting backgrounds.

Use Adirondack Brights for more vivid results and be liberal with the ink, also allow to dry naturally and not with a heat tool.
Here is the video, have fun experimenting with this one and please let me know how you get on!

  20. After the uninstallation interaction finishes, restart your PC to allow the progressions to produce results. Subsequent to restarting, interface your printer to the system, and it should begin introducing the printer consequently. On the off chance that the network requests the driver area, driver the CD that accompanied the printer. Restart your PC again in the wake of introducing driver.
