Today I'd like to share my experience with making my own Alcohol Inks. I've used the Ranger Alcohol Inks in the past and I really like them a lot! They're permanent and they dry really fast, so they're great for adding color to shiny plastics and metals.
Search my blog's materials category to see how I used them to change the color of some metal charms.
Anyhoo, I got the idea to make my own Alcohol Inks from Alisa Burke - an artist and blogger that I just adore! <3 She wrote a post titled "Kids Markers - Tips and Tricks for Adults". In the article she says that you can make watercolors and alcohol inks out of dried out Crayola Markers! OMG that's right up my alley - and to think I've been throwing them away when my daughter leaves the cap off. Doh!
