Required Supplies for all cards
You will need Isopropyl Alcohol for this class. With Covid Pandemic, it may be difficult to source this so don't wait until the last minute. You will want to get it at least 70% IA. The higher % the faster the ink will dry on your paper. Get a couple of different strengths to test which one gives you the result you want.
They make 91% but it has been hard to find. I would encourage you to try to find this strength if you can. Maybe it is in your medicine cabinet right now!
You can use a eye dropper to place the alcohol on the paper but I would recommend getting a container like the one show below to get a more precise application
You will also need to protect your surface. Alcohol inks are permanent and you will need to be able to clean your surface in between cards. I used the Tim Holtz Glass Media mat but you can also use a craft mat or even waxpaper. I will ink to all three of them below, but just know you only need one of them.
Be sure to where clothing you do not mind getting ink on. Because trust me, its bond to happen. I also like to use latex gloves to protect my skin, as the ink can be messy.
