  • The colours can be easily mixed in a plastic mixing palette to create new shades.
  • 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.
  • Shake the metallic and diamond Alcohol Inks until the pigments are evenly dispersed. If the bottle has already been opened (see step 3): 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 background. Add Extender on top. The ink thins out and becomes more fluid.
  • Carefully blow the ink, working outwards (e.g. with a drill hole blower). Tip: To create flowers, blow the ink outwards working in a circle.
  • Repeat the process several times until the desired result has been achieved.
  • Let it dry.
