Alcohol Inks

Piñata Colors are highly saturated, fast-drying acid-free alcohol inks for use on any non-porous surface, including Mineral Paper, Yupo Paper, glass, metal, plastic, ceramic, stone, leather, polymer clay and more. Piñata Colors clean up with alcohol and re-wet themselves, allowing for unique effects and techniques not easily achieved with water-based systems.

Drop
Inks can be dropped on to Mineral Paper or Yupo Paper. Add layers of inks while wet for interesting mixing results.

Extender A
Drop the extender onto Mineral Paper or Yupo Paper prior to dropping on coloured inks. This will allow inks to layer and sit on different levels.

White, Gold & Silver Ink
These pigments interact with other colours. It is best to use them on top of wet colours.

Layering
To avoid inks mixing and changing colours, allow the first layer to dry before adding additional colours.

Rubbing Alcohol
Rubbing Alcohol can be dropped on to inks or misted on using a Spray Mister. This will dilute and reactivate dried inks.

Brush
Alcohol inks can be applied with a brush. It is recommended that you use old brushes as they will retain some of the alcohol even when cleaned. Use Rubbing Alcohol to first clean the brush, then the Brush Cleaner as a final rinse.
