I discovered a new technique using alcohol inks this week. I squirted some out in a plastic palette and let them dry. I filled a empty water-brush with goo gone and used it to paint with the dried up alcohol inks to get a watercolor look on my project without smearing my water based printer ink! Pretty cool huh? Practice a bit first before trying it on your project to get a feel fo it, this will bleed through the paper so you may want an old magazine under where you work. Here is a pic of my setup:

Let the alcohol ink dry in the palette before using. I used Piniata and Ranger inks.
