Alcohol ink for beginners tutorial
As you will see in this simple alcohol ink for beginners tutorial, alcohol inks are just fun and mesmerising!
You don’t need a whole lot of colours to start and I know I have heaps but… I have been building up my collection for years and I also use them during my studio workshops (or I wouldn’t have this much lol).
So just get a few colours you love, and colours that mix well to start with. To be honest, even when I create muddy browns and greens, they still look cool (that only works for me with alcohol inks though, no other medium!!).
Watch the video and leave me a comment to let me know if you enjoyed it, or got inspired!!

List of supplies:
- Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink (Pistachio, Pool, Salmon)
- Pinata Rich Gold (nicer than the Tim Holtz gold mixative!)
- Ranger blending solution
- Yupo paper I’ve cut down in half (I’m using lightweight because that’s good enough for practicing but get the heavyweight for better results!)
- A straw and… that’s all!
- Oh and the Solvol magic soap that removes everything including ink from your hands!!
Oh it’s so hard to capture the metallic shine but believe, it’s so pretty!!
