alcohol ink book covers
I forgot to mention that you apply a layer of white glue over the top of everything before you go at it with the alcohol ink. That layer of glue helps keep those silly rolly beads in place. It also means that you cannot work with the ink for too long as it will reactivate the glue and then you end up with a sticky mess. Of course you have to wait for the glue to dry before you apply the ink.
I hope to get these covers made into a little journal and post pictures of that soon.
