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!:)
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!
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!
