What is an alcohol ink?
An alcohol ink is an acid-free, fast drying transparent dye ink specially formulated to create a colourful, polished stone effect.
Use it on Yupo paper, glossy paper, dominoes, metal, shrink plastic, glass, and other slick surfaces.
The Adirondack range comes in a huge variety of colours so you can create completely unique colour blends!
Don’t forget to get some Alcohol Blending Solution to lighten up colours and clean inks from non-porous surfaces.
Use the Tim Holtz® Applicator to apply the inks to paper and other surfaces and try the Tim Holtz® Fillable Pen to create custom Ink markers for doodling, art journalling and colouring!
Note: Ranger does not recommend using Tim Holtz® Alcohol Inks, Metallic Mixatives, Snow Cap Mixative or Alcohol Ink Blending Solution in spray bottles as these contents contain alcohol and should not be airborne.
