Understanding Alcohol Ink – Lesson #11 Substrates – Surfaces

Alcohol inks can be used on lots of different non-porous surfaces. I hope to save you time and expense by demonstrating how the Ranger inks pour, move, and lift on 16 different surfaces. Also included is a summary of findings and a cost comparison.

The is the eleventh in a series to help you understand why and how Alcohol Inks work. In this lesson we look at 16 different kinds of papers and other surfaces to use with your alcohol ink. You can watch each of the different surfaces and see what appeals to you. You may want to try something that you’ve heard of using or perhaps get a new idea. This lesson is in two parts:

Part 1: Pour and move the ink around

Part 2: Lift, summarize what I saw and compare the costs.

Questions and comments are always welcome.
