Piñata Alcohol Inks

New to ARTdiscount: Piñata alcohol inks, a vibrant, fast drying medium which can be used on non-porous surfaces. That's right, more than just paper. Ideal for use on any hard surface; including glass, metal, plastic, ceramic, stone, leather, resin, polymer clay, YUPO® synthetic paper and much more. Once dry they are indelible and impervious to water. Varnish or resin is best applied to finished surfaces to extend the longevity.

Using alcohol inks can be a fun way to experiment with colour mixing such as marbling, dripping and blending, ideal for creating backgrounds for other works of art. Piñata Colours are acid-free and unparalleled for vibrancy. Only most light fast dyes have been selected for their full range, view here.

These are cleaned with alcohol and re-wet themselves this way too, allowing for unique effects and techniques not easily achieved with water-based inks.

Hint:.Alcohol inks do not do well on porous materials as they will soak in and begin to fade. Acrylic inks which are water-based are popular and suited for use on porous materials such as canvas and paper.
