Use the Peacock Feathers Distress Stain by Tim Holtz for Ranger Ink on paper and other porous surfaces. This fluid, water-based dye can quickly cover backgrounds and large areas. Mist it with water to lighten the color or to create a mottled effect. Add layers of stain for a deeper color. The 1 oz. bottle has a brushed nylon tricot dabber with a spring valve built in.
