If you’ve ever used alcohol inks with polymer clay, carefully choosing colors and applying them just so… only to have them look completely different when coming out of the oven, then you’ve experienced the disappointment of color shift.
I’ve been using Ranger alcohol inks for years, and I have experienced that color shift issue several times.
Finally I got smart about it and created a chart showing the colors:
- straight out of the bottle, not mixed with clay
- mixed with translucent clay but unbaked
- mixed with translucent clay, rolled thin and baked
Now I can clearly see why I’ve been having trouble all these years!
I really should do more testing of the sort, the time it takes would probably save a lot of time and aggravation.
In the video I’ll show you not only how I put together this chart and the results (and made a better chart for the Pinata inks!) but I’ll also show you a cool trick I figured out for labeling bottles with black caps. So simple and yet so helpful.
