All about alcohol inks! This page has color charts, combinations, a collection of techniques and projects. Including using alcohol ink with polymer clay, metal leafing, domino art, mixing with glues and other mediums to tint them for glazing, glass paint, faux enamel, miniature food syrups and beverages, etc.
Patina Everything! vinegar, white or apple cider salt, just regular old salt out of my shaker. For small items. I fill a quart yogurt container half full of vinegar, and sprinkle in some salt. (not measured, but guess 1 tsp.??) dump your keys, clips, hinges, watch parts, locks... any metal you want to 'age'. I leave them over night, just 'cause it is convenient. Seal if you touch items a lot
