Alcohol Inks are user friendly, permanent, fade resistant , fast drying and acid free dyes, with the brilliance of stained glass. They have an isopropyl rubbing alcohol base and can be manipulated in fascinating and unpredictable ways. Thicker than water color, they allow for a very loose and texturized painting. Best suited for nonporous surfaces. All of my work is created on tiles or synthetic Yupo paper substrates.
