Because of number of inquiries I’ve received from posting Dreamscape No. 533 on Facebook yesterday, decided to respond here.
Adirondack Alcohol Inks: Gold & Silver Mixatives, Caramel, Stream
Piñata Alcohol Ink: Blanco
Lowes 4″x 4″ Glass Tile (purchased on clearance at Lowe’s. May not be a normally stocked item. Online search shows same tile in a 3×6.)
1. Transparent alcohol inks turned dark and seemed to disappear on the tinted glass tile. Incorporating Blanco and Mixatives made inks opaque and caused them to stand out.
2. Scraping back to the glass created darks instead of lights as on white ceramic tile. Also gave a sense of depth because of 1/4 tinted transparent glass. Especially visible in lower portion of image below:
Inks used for No. 534: My favorite triad, plus, Blanco, Silver and Gold.
While I am loving these effects, still working this out! Some of the finished tiles have exhibited ink flaking.
Thanks for your inquires. Have fun. Please comment if you have anything to add from your own experimentation of working with alcohol inks on glass.
