Alcohol Ink Agate on Grunge

Welcome to Technique Tuesday!
By Judy Cantrell
This week my technique is from Compendium of Curiosities
Page 53 ~ Alcohol Ink Agate on Grunge
Adirondack Dabber Metallic Paint [Pearl]
Adirondack Alcohol inks
(Eggplant, Terra Cotta, Butterscotch)
Ink Applicator Tool (Felt)
Metallic Mixative Alcohol ink [Gold]
Adirondack Alcohol Blending Solution
Ranger non-stick Craft Sheet
Movers & Shapers BaroqueDie
Die –cutting tool
Archival Ink pad
Heat Tool


     1.  Place non-stick craft sheet down on work table.
  1. Paint your Grungeboard die cut with Pearl dabber paint.
  2. Let dry completely.
    Note: You can use this technique on fabric or wood.
  1. Apply several colors of alcohol ink onto ink felt applicator; Shake Metallic Mixative and then add one drop to the applicator tool.
  2. Use the inked applicator tool to paint onto the painted grunge-board.
  3. Apply Blending Solution onto the ink felt applicator tool and stamp onto the painted and inked background. This will blend and move the colors around.
  4. Once your background is dry you can stamp an image with Archival Ink and then heat set to dry.

This is a finished piece I made using this technique; alcohol ink agate on grungeboard: 

Come back soon!!
