Availability: Usually dispatched within 10 days.
Tim Holtz Alcohol Pearls are permanent, fast drying, pigment and dye inks formulated to create pearlescent colorful effects. Use with Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks and Alcohol Ink Blending Solution to achieve luminous layers on YUPO, Alcohol Ink Cardstock, Alcohol Ink Surfaces, and other non-porous surfaces. Available in 12 colors open stock, each in a .5 fl. oz. bottle or four kits, each containing 3 colors. All bottles of Tim Holtz Alcohol Pearl Inks have a mixing ball in them. Occasionally, the mixing ball can get stuck in the pearlized pigment that settles to the bottom. Here are some tips for loosening the ball to properly mix the solution. Placing the bottle in some warm-to-hot tap water for a few minutes can help loosen the mixing ball. Then, unfold a standard size paperclip (do not use a pin) and carefully insert it through the tip until it reaches the bottom of the bottle. â€œStirringâ€ the paperclip usually dislodges the mixing ball and the bottle can be shaken as usual. Ranger suggest storing Tims Alcohol Pearls on their sides. Doing it this way allows the mica to settle to the sides rather than sticking to the bottom. It makes it easier to shake the bottle to mix the solution. Tim stores his Pearls in the Alcohol Ink Storage Tin, and then lays the tin on its side.
