The is the eleventh in a series to help you understand why and how Alcohol Inks work. In this lesson we look at 16 different kinds of papers and other surfaces to use with your alcohol ink. You can watch each of the different surfaces and see what appeals to you. You may want to try something that you’ve heard of using or perhaps get a new idea. This lesson is in two parts:
