They tend to be expensive and the local big box craft stores don't carry a variety of colors. We don't tend to get them in the shop too often so that got us thinking..."hmm, what if we make our own?"
As usual, Google and YouTube were our go-to resources. We found several helpful hints on making our own inks, typically using markers and rubbing alcohol. So, we decided to schedule a short session (also on Meetup.com) on Saturday, September 11th at 11:00 a.m.
In preparation for the session, I (Victor) have been experimenting with various tint sources - permanent markers, acrylic paint, and inkjet ink. We'll get to try them all on the 11th.
If you currently use alcohol inks, whether you purchase them or make your own, come by and share your experiences.
If you have been wondering about them, come by, learn from those using them and try out a few options for making your own and trying them on different surfaces.
