Finally got time to experiment with my alcohol inks.  So here they are…

I used various techniques including using a paintbrush to make stripes, dripping and blowing with a straw, and then sponging.

I read about using foil with alcohol inks while they are still sticky and I was curious to try it out, so I dug out some old silver foil and look – it worked pretty well.  It’s totally random and dependent on some areas taking longer to dry than others, usually because they are thicker, so the foil will stick to those areas and ignore the rest.
