Tutorial of the Week: Altering Metal Filigrees Using Alcohol Ink

Good morning, everyone! Another week…another tutorial 🙂 Well, this week I’m going to go over one of my favorite products to use when altering metal…alcohol inks!

Alcohol inks are also translucent (with the exception of metallic mixatives), so you can achieve some really cool effects when layering them. They are also very easily re-activated, making them very forgiving to work with…so, if ya mess up it’s not a problem 🙂
