A big advantage of painting with Alcohol Inks is that - in contrast to Acrylic Pouring - you don't need a large working area or special hobby room. It is sufficient to protect the work surface with a large newspaper or foil and to provide sufficient ventilation. All materials are also quickly stowed away in a box and take up very little space.
Would you like to try painting with Alcohol Inks first and don't want to invest so much money in the equipment yet? Then we recommend our Alcohol Ink Starter Set. In this set we have compiled the basic equipment you need to start painting with Alcohol Inks: Alcohol Inks, Alcohol Ink Paper, Isopropanol and other useful supplies. The Alcohol Ink Starter Set is available in four different colour combinations.
With an Alcohol Ink Starter Set you can already achieve great results. But probably you will be so fascinated by the bright colours, their reactions with each other and the resulting colour gradients that you will want to try out other Alcohol Ink techniques or colours. If you are not sure which colours harmonise with each other or create exciting contrasts, we have prepared optimally coordinated colour sets. Each set consists of three colours, which can be used to conjure up such beautiful creations. By using one of our metallic shades in silver, gold or copper you can achieve very special effects.
The individual Alcohol Ink colours can be mixed with each other. You can also make them more transparent with Blending Solution or dilute them with isopropyl alcohol. Ideal for this are small squeeze bottles, which you can easily fill with the help of a mini funnel. In our bottle sets everything is included.
Basic bottle set and accessories for the introduction to painting with alcohol inks
Painting with alcohol inks is an artistic hobby that is enjoying steadily increasing popularity.
With the help of the semi-transparent, fast drying inks, the most diverse materials such as metal or glass, household objects such as flower pots or plastic objects can be embellished quickly and easily in a creative way.
Of course you can continue to paint on paper as usual.
With our starter set we offer you everything you need for the start in accessories (no ink included in the set).
You can transfer your inks to the soft, easily squeezable 10 ml LDPE bottles as well as mix different inks to new shades. The included funnel and 1 pair of gloves will help you to fill your inks cleanly and protect your hands from paint splashes when applying.
With the help of the 50 ml bottle incl. atomizer you have the possibility to dose the alcohol inks finely atomized to create interesting color effects. Alternatively, you can also apply very fine blending solution with it.
Scope of delivery:
- 10x 10 ml LDPE bottles with a fine dosing tip, incl. black screw cap with child safety lock
- 1x 50ml HDPE bottle with atomizer (made of PP) for nebulisation of Alcohol Inks or Blending Solution
- 1x mini funnel (made of LDPE) for easy decanting of your inks, 1 pair of vinyl gloves
- 20x labelling labels for individual marking of your plastic bottles
You can also achieve interesting effects by filling isopropyl alcohol ink in spray bottles. You can simply drip the Alcohol Inks onto your painting ground. You can apply both alcohol ink and isopropyl alcohol with pipettes on the Alcohol Ink paper. Or you can screw needle caps on the Alcohol Ink bottles and you can dose even more precisely.
Use the MINI Alcohol Ink Accessories Set for painting with our excellent Octopus Fluids Alcohol Inks.
The accessory set contains the most important painting tools:
Small pharmacy bottles with glass pipettes are particularly practical. These are easy to fill and allow exact dosing of the alcohol inks. But you can also achieve great effects with spray bottles.
And of course you need an Alcohol Ink painting ground. All non-absorbent surfaces are suitable. The best results are achieved on special Alcohol Ink paper. This is synthetic and mostly consists of polypropylene. Best known are Yupo and Lanavanguard.
On this paper the Alcohohl Inks can flow wonderfully into each other, you can swivel them or swirl them with a hairdryer. With alcohol inks you can also paint realistically. Photo paper is very suitable for this purpose. You can even paint with alcohol inks on canvas. The only important thing here is that you prepare them with gesso or acrylic binder. A cheap alternative is also wallpaper skin.
Let your creativity run free and decorate candles, ceramics, modelling clay, stones, lanterns or shells with alcohol paints. You can also design colorful tiles or glass panes with Alcohol Inks.
