Some experiments with CrafTangles alcohol ink papers by Neha Bhatt [Periwinkle Creations]

Hello Friends,
I am back with a review post. This time, it is Alcohol InkPaper by HDMD. It is a great alternate for YUPO. Like YUPO it is a synthetic
paper. Alcohol inks works best on nonporous surface. This paper is non-tearable
and nonporous which allows great movement of inks. It is thick and can take
hair dryer or heat gun very well. Compare to yupo it is 1/3 of the price. Isn’t
that great!
There are mainly pictures of the projects i made on this
paper. I will list color, brand and tips for each project below the picture.

These two are small approx 2.5 x 3.3 inches.
Colors  : Copic refills YG63 and G19
Gold  – Piñata gold
applied with thin brush.
Tips – Use hairdryer to get those lines. The paper is quite
thick and will take heat well without warping.

Colors : Copic YG63, G19, Ranger- Sailboat blue,
piñata-passion purple.
I was going for an infinite ring look for this one but
because of humidity in the air, inks won’t co-operate. Yes, alcohol inks work
best in dry cool weather.
Check the close ups.

Tip – I use this tiny pallet of medicine strip. Details in

Next one is created using HNDMD masking paper! I have tried
many different materials from washi tape to masking paper & tape with
alcohol inks but was never successful. Inks always bleed under the mask. But
this masking paper is a game changer… no bleeding under the edges. The
alcohol ink paper is easy to clean too. Few inks stain the paper but overall
you can clean splatters and booboos with a swab of isopropyl alcohol without
leaving any trace.

I die cut a butterfly from the masking paper and used the
negative to mask alcohol ink paper. Added inks, removed the mask and added few
splatters.
Colors – Ranger – Purple twilight & Cool Peri
There are many possibilities with masking. I will try to
explore more in my next post.

Color – Ranger Raspberry
Tip – Dilute ink with isopropyl before adding to the paper.
This will prevent staining of paper. Use hair dryer to blow the ink back and
forth to create crease lines.

Highlights :
       
Great quality of paper. Ink moves beautifully on
it.
       
Because of thickness, you can use hair dryer
fearlessly. I tried heat gun too from a distance and it was safe and didn’t
wrap the paper.
       
Paper does not stain easily, and clean up is
very easy.
       
PRICE – 1/3 than yupo….I am SOLD…:)  
I hope you like the projects. Give these paper a try. I am
sure you will fall in love with it. Thank you for being here. Have a great day!
