T.H. Re-Inkers

Does any-one know if these can be used the same as Alcolhol Inks.

I love the Fired Brick in the pads but can't seem to find the same darkness of red in the Alcohol Inks.

They're a very different formulation from alcohol inks and react very differently - they're water-based not alcohol-based. What technique were you wanting to use them for?

Hi. thanks for answering.

I want to ink a piece of Acetate with red,gold & black.
I've tried the Red Pepper but it's more orangey than the red I wanted. It's for a Ruby Wedd'g album so as you can imagine the redder the better.

Mmm.. no, distress reinkers won't work to colour acetate, I'm afraid. They won't dry properly on acetate. Have you tried perhaps using Red Pepper along with a darker alcohol ink colour, like Plum or something? Drops of each on an inking tool along with some blending solution and blot it all over the acetate, should give you a nice mottled darker red overall colour?

You could also try colouring the actate with a deep red Promarker pen. They're alcohol based so will dry on acetate... though you won't really get a smooth colour, you'll be able to see the pen strokes, as it were.

It might be easier to look at buying red acetate, if such a thing exists?

I've been down the Promarker pen route & didn't like the result.
I've had a PM that suggests Cranberry which I thought might be too purple but I'm willing to give it a try.
Also, I didn't think about inking Red acetate with the black & gold. Will give it a try as a last resort as I'll have to buy some - if I can find any.

Another option would be glass paints - you can use those an acetate and they give a translucent colour.

Thanks, but I don't have any of those either.

Mmm - it's turning out to be an expensive idea.
Think I might just stick with the Cranberry & as a last resort Red Acetate.
