Step 1: Mix and Test
Cover work space with garbage bags and put on gloves. Put a small amount of isopropyl alcohol into a spray bottle. Add drops of alcohol ink. Spray on white paper to test color strength.
Step 2: Section
Separate the lowest layer. Add a very small amount of water for control if needed.
Step 3: Spray
Spray on the color pattern. Make sure not to touch areas or it will leave marks. Blow dry on low heat until ink is dry.
Step 4: Repeat
Pull down the next section and repeat. Repeat the process until all layers are coated. Let dry and then it's ready to wear!
