How to Color Items Using Alcohol Ink

Have you ever looked for a vase in a particular color and could not find it? 

What about looking for flowers in the right shade of berry to coordinate with your decor?

Crafted by Joy.

Have you heard of Adirondack Alcohol Ink? It is an acid-free, fade resistant, fast drying transparent ink that can be used on items such as paper, fabric, metal, glass, plastic and more.


  • Adirondack Alcohol Ink
  • Tim Holtz Foam Applicator
  • Inkssentials Mini Mister
  • Inkssentials Non-Stick Craft Mat
  • Alcohol Blending Solution
  • A Clear Glass Vase
  • A White Flower

All supplies used for this project can be found at our Bonney Lake store.

Let's start with coloring a vase.
  1. Apply a small amount of alcohol ink to the foam applicator.
  2. Use a tapping action to cover the vase in the ink.
  3. Set aside and let dry when done.

 Now, let's color a flower.
  1. Apply a small amount of alcohol ink into the mister.
  2. Spray the flower a few times and watch the ink saturate. Go over the missed areas. 
  3. Set aside to let dry when done.

You can view the video demonstration by Joy, our Paper and Ink Diva, on how to use and apply alcohol ink.
