Technique Tuesday

Hey all please forgive the tardiness of my Tuesday Technique post.  This was a crazy week for me and the days have just all kind of joined together!  Anyway on to our tutorial.

I dont know about you but I love alcohol inks, I spray nearly every page I make.  However, by using so much it becomes expensive over time with buying more so here's a way to make your own!  Here is what you will need:
  1. Small empty spray bottle which you can pick up from Michaels or Hobby Lobby, even Wal-Mart has them.
  2. Powder Kool-Aid color of your choice.
  3. Rubbing Alcohol


 How to:

Place the Kool-Aid powder in the bottle; fill it up almost to the top with rubbing alcohol. Shake to dissolve. You can add more or less powder, depending on how intense you want the color.

I used red and green in this example.  For the red I used the entire package because I wanted a deeper hue.  Some colors are more intense than others so start with about 1 tsp and work your way up if you need to.

You can also use RIT dye powder or liquid form which works the same way as the Kool-Aid but with RIT you will use a lot less as they are very intense.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.  I will post my example using this technique in my next reveal so stay tuned!
