Watercolour Painting Effects with Alcohol & Solvent Based Inks

Longtime friend of my YouTube channel Laura asked a question in the comments of my video last week, where I used Distress Inks and water to watercolour an art journal page. Laura asked whether the same could be done for solvent or spirit based inks and alcohol.

I couldn’t answer the question without first putting it to the test! Click below to watch the results of my experiments.
