Introduction

Exciting magic is in Permanent Marker ink! Every imaginable color will run, smudge and bleed on paper fabric with the addition of simple rubbing alcohol.

Permanent markers are fun to use! They add brilliant colors, are easy to use and the really fun part is the inks are altered with alcohol into stunning patterns and a rainbow of color variations.

Markers soak into porous surfaces such as paper, clay and wood and are permanent on clothing and fabric.

They can also be used on non-porous surfaces such as plastic and metal. This book illustrates a wide variety of ways to use markers in creative projects, from free-form doodling to creating designs with bleeding ink.

Prepare to be inspired, informed and entertained with fresh techniques that are fun and easy.
