Swatches and color studies ofRanger alcohol pearl inks. The swatches are, left to right, Enchanted, Envy, and Villainous. All have a beautiful pearlescent shimmer. Did a couple of color studies to see how the pearlescent inks would interact with regular alcohol inks.
If you put down a drop of alcohol ink followed by a drop of pearl ink, you get beautiful circular or semicircular auras as the pearl ink sorto mixes with and displaces the alcohol ink. If you put the pearl ink down first, the alcohol ink floats on top of and mixes with the pearl without creating an aura. You get a new, shimmery color. Had a bit of a problem with the pearl ink lifting from the yupo paper on the color studies with regular alcohol inks but not the swatches. Anyone else have that problem with the alcohol pearls? 🤔
