I have been trying out ways to colour sequins because sometimes it's hard to find the colour you really need or you just want more subtlety of shading. I bought a few alcohol inks to try out; they are Tim Holz Adirondack alcohol inks. I bought some metallic ones too but I didn't like these as much as the plain colour ones. The inks are intense...a little goes a long way and they are very hard to control in their application. They move very quickly, being very thin and watery in consistency. They are easier to apply by dropping and pouring rather than brushing them on. I found brushing didn't really do an awful lot. For smaller sequins I created little pools of ink in the shallow wells of a paint palette and simply dropped the sequins in there. Most of the time the ink dried off quickly and left a small pile of re-coloured sequins. They stuck together a bit and I had to spread them apart and lay them out to dry properly on some kitchen towel. The larger sequins were easier to deal with and I just loved playing around by dropping the inks on them and watching the colours of different inks merge and blend across the surface. I stuck with silver and clear sequins mainly to start off with so I could see what effect the inks had on a "plain" surface. It was all a bit unpredictable but some of the results were lovely and I will definitely try to recreate them. I need to learn more about mixing alcohol inks into more predictable colour blends so I don't waste them.
