What do you use on top of the Tim Holtz alcohol ink to make it permanent when altering stuff? I need something that will be water proof. Also do you use something diffrent than the felts to keep from getting the little fibers on your projects?

What will you be using it on? Since it is alcohol and not water based, it will not wash off with water.

I use the felts too, but I'm not entirely happy with them. I think that they get pushed onto the velcro too easily and it doesn't really hold the ink very well. I'm going to try the foams.

I'm using it on glass, and ceramic tiles, and it rubs/ scratches easily off.

Could you seal it with Mod Podge? I know there is a variety of Mod Podge for almost every need.

I would seal with something like diamond glaze, then.

They are already water proof so you don't do anything.

I've never sealed it? But I think modge podge or diamond glaze/glossy accents like said above would work well.

I don't use the felts, if it's too big I will use the foams, but usually I put a few drops into a zip lock bag, throw whatever I'm inking into it, mush it around and done

I use the felts, the foam ones just suck the ink up! You have to put a GOOD squeeze on it.

IF you want to seal it, I would recommend Glossy Accents or Mod Podge.

When it's dry it comes off? I've never had that happen!

I haven't ever had that either. I have used it on all kinds of surfaces and it doesn't budge!

I use the felts, but the $5 felt replacement packages crack me up. For 20 cents I can buy a sheet of felt and wihout much effort cut it into as many (or more) squares as what you get for $5 in the package.
