I was so excited when I brought this home along with my Tim Holtz alcohol inks. Using the blending solution with the inks makes the most beautiful kaleidescope of colors! They produce an amazing effect I couldn't achieve any other way. They are foolproof, too. You can work with them by applying and if you want another look, just add more colors and reapply the blending solution to change for another effect. Easy to use, even for me!

When I first got my TH alcohol inks I did not get the blending solution.....my bad!
Someone suggested using hair spray instead and I tried it. That would be a big NO NO! I did not like the results and was very disappointed!
Needless to say, I used the blending solution & it was just like the video showed....beautiful!! GREAT RESULTS!:)

This is a great product to use with the alcohol inks, I found you can mix a little with a 2 oz. bottle of 91% alcohol and it gives more working time, a bit of saving's.
The price on the Scrapbook.com site was the least expensive, plus I got free shipping, maybe because this was my first purchase, but what a great deal.
I love this solution. I recommend if you are mixing colors to use this. It blends the inks very nicely and there really isn't anything to it. It's easy to use and it'll last you a long time since you really don't need to apply much.

This product will lighten the color on your project and will even remove color if you have it in the wrong place. I watched his video and worked with this product while watching. Love those videos!
I used this product along with the Adriondack 3 pack of Alcohol Inks on glass charms. Here is a link to the end product

I just worked a little bit with these products after checking out the Tim Holtz demos on line.
I LOVE the look of the alcohol inks and look forward to doing lots more with all of the things I ordered from you.
I was a little shocked at the large size of the box it all came in, considering how small the products that I ordered. I always worry about the trees.
I have been playing with the blending solution and inks, and I have to admit they're pretty amazing but you can have the same effect and much cheaper in price with blank photo paper using the glossy side of course, and any kind of inks and just good old alcohol with a cotton ball, just put the inks on the moderately alcohol saturated cotton ball and blend away. Of course, you have to made sure if it's safe to use on scrapbooking layouts, I usually use this technique for cards and sometimes on my layouts, it's really what you prefer.
