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!

  5. yes.. I agree with all the others. its very cool and i have to try it. (one more way for me to use a ton of alcohol inks and then go shopping with multi-coloured hands .. usually its some disgusting shade that resembles nicotine and i get the urge to explain myself)
    I love the beads. if I give it a go and blog I will be sure to redirect folks here...

  13. Well i've had a play and i'm a tad disappointed at the results.. but only because i don't have any of the light or bright inks yet so all mine came out kinda muted.. still it's a fab technique and i had great fun playing, just need to save for some bright inks now! Thanks so much for sharing :D
