Alcohol Ink Resist Technique

Postby GlitteryKatie on Wed Sep 01, 2010 7:21 am

I've been revisiting alcohol inks this week-there are some GREAT colours available, not just earth tones but Pastels and Brights too!

You will need:

Glossy cardstock

Alcohol inks (I used Purple Twilight, Raspberry, Sunset Orange)

Ink tool applicator and felt pads

Covered worksurface (it can be messy)

Stamps

Clear embossing powder

Embossing Ink

Heat Gun

An iron - yes really!

First you need to stamp your image using embossing ink onto glossy card.Then clear emboss the image using embossing powder and your heat gun:

Then ink up your applicator with some alcohol ink and rub over the surface of the image:

When the image is fully covered put your iron on to HOT and place a piece of clean paper over your embossed image.

Iron over the image, through the clean paper.

This melts and removes the embossing powder, you end up with a lovely clear, white image:

I did this four times with different coloured inks, added some Primas, brads and glitter for a fun Fiesta themed card!

Happy crafting

How cool is that???? LOVE all the bright colors and this technique is so easy to do! Can't wait to try it- oh, guess I'd better buy some alchohol inks, first! ;)

Great job, KT!

I love this one. I have used embossing for a resist before, but never removed it like that. Way cool!

Oh my! That's gorgeous and looks relatively easy. I just need to make sure no one sees me use an iron. I don't want them to get any weird ideas.

Fabulous tutorial. Makes me want more alcohol inks.

Katie, I am just giddy over Dia de los Muertos and this festive project fits the bill! I can't wait to try it!

Kathi, I have a teeny tiny craft iron that gets used a whole heck of a lot more than the regular iron. I would have to dust the cobwebs off the full size iron before I could use it...hahaha!

I can see this going in stages like Batik. You could make an image that you want to stay white, ink over it (and let it dry!!!) with one light colour, then emboss another pattern over that, ink again (and let it dry!!) etc 3 or 4 times and then iron it all off... :) If the repeated heating didn't make the embossing powder sink in too much it might look really good!

Hmm... wheels are turning now...

Cheryl- my daughter, when she was four had to ask me what an iron was for and looked blank when I mentioned 'ironing' so I said- flattening paper and she twigged right away :lol:
That pink iron in the photo is a teeny travel iron I bought to take to crops- it worked great on the embossing powder!!
