If you asked me where the idea came from to try Tim’s new Lift-Ink on a Gel Press Plate I’m not certain I could pinpoint anything specific. Inspiration has a funny way of sneaking up on me. Some of the time ideas pop into my head just before I fall asleep. Others wake me up in the dead of the night, seemingly coming out of nowhere.
I wasn’t sure how the process would play out, but was very happy with the discoveries I made in the very short time I had to play just prior to filming today’s video. Brayering Lift-Ink on a plate before adding drops of ink allows them to spread and bloom more like what usually happens on Yupo, with the added bonus of ruffled edges. That was a very pleasant surprise, trust me. As was figuring out that if I added a color of ink to the Lift-Ink and brayered that out, it created a tinted base for the other colors to bloom on. And… created colored ruffles around the bloomed circles. Ah inspiration… how I love thee!
Making this even better is that we’re still offering 30% off the entire category of Tim’s Alcohol Inks. That includes the Lift-Ink Pad, the Reinker, all of the ink colors, and the accessories.
