Alcohol Inks are acid-free, fast drying and when combined with two or more colors produce beautiful batik and hand-dyed effects. These inks go a long way as the colors are very vivid and strong. They can also be used on glossy paper, metal, glass, and other slick surfaces. Great for scrapbooking.
Also available are the luminous, fast drying, acid free Metallic Mixatives in pearl, copper, silver and gold. When combined with the Alcohol Inks, they produce luminous highlights.
The Adirondack Blending solution is specially formulated to lighten and blend the colors of the Alcohol Inks.
Use the Dowling stamp applicator for best results.
Memory Inks are semi-transparent and fade-resistant. One 1/2 oz bottle will cover about 100 five- to six-inch gourds, so a small amount goes a long way. As the inks have a slower drying time, you are able to blend colors. It's not necessary to wood burn lines into the gourd to corral the colors from running into each other.
Also available to use with the inks are the applicator cubes, which are great for applying color to large areas. Coat the felt with the desired color, and rub over the large areas to be covered. Once done, close the applicator and save for the next project.
