  • Marabu Alcohol Ink is suitable for non-absorbent surfaces (e. g. coated special paper, glass, metal, porcelain, etc.). Please note, that Alcohol Ink is not dishwasher safe and only suitable for art objects/decorative items. It is not food-safe or saliva-proof and must not be used on cut surfaces or drinking edges.
  • Keep away from open flames (e.g. candles), as Alcohol Ink is highly flammable.

How it is done:

  • Cover the work surface and your clothing. Put on disposable gloves. Put on a protective mask and open the windows.
  • Section off individual areas on the paper with adhesive tape.
  • Shake the metallic and diamond Alcohol Inks until the pigments are evenly distributed (mixing ball contained). If the bottle has already been opened (see step 4): place a gloved finger over the open bottle tip and shake well.
  • How to open the Alcohol Ink bottle: pull off the cap and insert a pin into the top of the bottle tip.
  • Squeeze droplets of Alcohol Ink in the desired colour onto the surface. Each droplet will spread out. Adding droplets of a second colour next to or on top of the first colour, displaces the first one.
  • Alcohol Ink Extender creates clear circles.
  • Keep adding more droplets of Alcohol Ink until the desired result has been achieved.
  • Let it dry and remove the tape.
