Demo of me painting with fire and alcohol inks.
DUDE ..... that's crazy! But man, those COLORS ................Awesome demo.
Interesting concept. What paints were you using? I like the paint holder you were using, going to steal the idea. :)
What kind of topcoat do you use to seal the finish??
Maybe I'm missing it or just not seeing it...so you put the inks on and dry them, they seem to stay on there. Then you add the fire and that does....what...? Does it stain the metal? I guess I'm trying to think about the science of this stuff, I guess. What would it do if you didn't use the fire?
Tim Holtz alcohol ink at michaels, hobby lobby, etc. Must be sealed with Kamar Varnish 3 coats , before any regular clear coat, or the alcohol will just come off.
The heat gun and fire make the ink dry rapidly. If not used it acts like water and just goes all over uncontrollably. you can see in tge video, i try to keep it hot so the ink boils ogf and dries quickly.
Fire stops the ink from spreading and causes color changes and outlines.
