With the recent release of Alcohol Lift-Ink by Tim Holtz and Ranger there seems to be a revival of our love for alcohol inks, but with all new products come new questions. Recently I have published two videos to try and help answer or demo how to use certain papers with these products. The first video was testing alcohol ink on plan 5″ x 7″ white Alcohol Ink Yupo cardstock from Ranger. This video came from a question on my Youtube channel where a viewer wanted to know if there was a correct side to using the paper.
Here is the first video if you want to watch the quick demo: Is there a right side to the white cardstock Yupo Paper?
I did a feel test first and both sides felt the same. After testing we saw that the ink did react the same on both pages. It’s good quick watch if your interest in peaked.
Here is what the results looked like:
Now from this video, another fabulous question came up. How does the alcohol ink react on the translucent Yupo paper. Now I didn’t have any on hand, so I just had to stop by our new Hobby Lobby, coupon in hand, to grab a pack so I could test it out.
From there I did this second video: Testing Alcohol Inks on Yupo and Foil Tape Sheets
In that video, you will see I decided to use Alcohol Ink on three paper types. I had the White Yupo Cardstock, the Translucent Yupo Paper, and the Alcohol Ink Foil Tape Sheets. I figured why not try a few at a time and see how they work. Once the testing was all dry I took out my Alcohol Lift-Ink and gave that a try as well. A two for one special. Below are some stills of the results. I think I may love the translucent Yupo paper now. The wheels are turning.
I hope these videos will help inspire you to grab your alcohol inks and try them on some new substrates for this upcoming fall and holiday season. Thanks so much for stopping by. I’d love to hear and see what you use your alcohol inks for!
