Trying Alcohol Ink

The last few days I have been trying alcohol ink on different types of fabric.  I tried muslin  img_20181028_16570229939253925.jpgI wasn’t over joyed with this.  Ink didn’t spread with the alcohol and turned a little dull.  Next was 100% cotton.  img_20181028_1657057501457954534.jpgThis one a little better  Then I tried silk.  I also used permanent markers and I got more of a run with the markers than the ink, but the inks are more vibrant.  img_20181028_165656305911122228.jpgI will be trying some brushing it on.  I do think this will be something fun to try for the winter..  Have you ever tried anything like this?

Just think of the designs you can make for your quilts.  Yours from the beginning to the end.  Now to start practicing.  We will see how it goes.
