Polished Stone - Adirondack Style

Magenta Young Girl Reading Stamp
 This week is all about background techniques.  The first one has been around for years.  The Ranger Ink/ Adirondack Alcohol Ink people made it famous, though.  It is easy to do and no two are alike. The supplies are minimal and it offers quick results.  Later this week, I will show the end results of this technique using different materials. Also, there will be a video comparing the three different results and a quick tutorial.

Pearl Mixative with Eggplant, Stream, Wild Plum
The common denominator to all of the polished stone configurations is a glossy surface and alcohol.
Please visit tomorrow to see how this technique can be done with Copic markers.

Have a great day!
