It's a very simple technique to do but not easy to photograph whilst you are doing it!
First of all you squeeze out some of the blending solution on top of the tiles:
(Tiles were £1 for 6, charity shop)
And then you simply add drops of various coloured alcohol inks on top.
Here are the finished tiles:
To fill in the gaps between the colours I used a thin wooden craft stick to push the colours around. I also added more drops of the blending solution for further blending. It's a very unpredictable technique and, sometimes frustratingly, the top colours ended up obliterating the ones from underneath.
For these tiles I used my limited collection of Ranger alcohol inks but I spotted on the crafting grapevine that Kuretake have brought out a range. I would love to have a go with some of their brighter colours.
These look great as they are but I think they need a protective coating of some sort. Does anybody know what type I need to use?
Thanks for looking and for any help/comments,
