Creative Chemistry 101: Alcohol Ink Agates

Some of my favorite types of ink are the alcohol based inks so I was very excited to explore them as part of the Creative Chemistry series from Online Card Classes. We put a variety of alcohol ink colors (one drop each), including a drop of Metallic Mixative onto the felt of the Ranger ink applicator tool and then used it to stamp on the glossy paper until it was completely covered. For the next layer we stamped in some Blending Solution followed by more color. The final step was to stamp the images with Archival Ink and then heat to set.

I love the effect you get when you apply the alcohol ink with this technique!

See you in the studio,
