I just started making my own glimmer mists yesterday. LOVE THEM! I wasn't sure at first but after putting a few light coats and drying with my heat gun- they're GREAT!
I use mini-misters, filled 3/4 with water, add 15 drops of alcohol ink, add 3-4 skewer tips off perfect pearls (I've been using matching colors but plan to try others when I get more inks- I've only got 3) and shake well. Turns out really nice.
It's not necessarily my favorite thing to do, but you can make lovely glittery Christmas ornaments with them. And I've seen some folks on here alter and color non-porous alphabet stickers with the inks. And...last week I painted a piece of chipboard with white acrylic paint, and then colored it with some alcohol inks and topped off with some glossy accents. It turned out okay in my book! So there should be some possibilities for altering chipboard, too...
I love alcohol inks! I use them all the time to cover chip alpha!
When you are covering chipboard do you just dab it on there or is there more to it?? HELP
If it is raw chipboard I just paint it with an artist brush, it usually only takes 1 coat. If it is a colored chip alpha & I want to change the color, it usually takes 2 coats applied with an artist brush
