Bleached Dye Ink – Jowilna 101

I love creating interesting effects using my ink collection. One of the things I love using is bleach. And even more exciting is the fact that all dye inks can be bleached to create amazing effects.

Let’s take a look at home amazing the end result is.

  • Step 1

    Use four colours of dye ink to blend a piece of white cardstock. I used a selection of Memento Ink colours.

  • Step 2

    Stamp images onto the blended background using VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

  • Step 3

    To add some highlights to the images I used bleach (Jik) and painted selected areas on my stamped image.

The bleach bleaches out the dye ink on the background to a lighter colour, and even changes to a different colour in certain areas.

 

The finer details:

  • Only once the bleach dries will the end effect be visible
  • The more bleach you add the lighter the ink will become
  • Use a synthetic paint brush to paint your bleach with – the bleach will burn away natural bristles on good quality paint brushes
  • Bleach can be used on any dye ink as well as plain coloured cardstock
  • Each colour of ink and cardstock will bleach to a different colour for a stunning end result
