Alcohol Marker Brands:
Ideas to ponder:
~ Use background fabrics in light colors other than white
~ Why not try some printed fabrics as a background
~ Draw complete pictures then saturate lightly with alcohol for a soft background blending all over
~ Radiated designs form by dripping alcohol in middle only, and it will wick outward in a circle
~ Rubbing alcohol comes in different strengths such as 70% and 91%
~ Keep shapes simple, as alcohol inks wick and blend it adds more interest
~ Don't forget to Press with iron to set ink
~ Stamp or layer metallic paints on top of designs with daubers or rubberstamps
