Experimentation: Batik with coffee!
Guess what? You can use day-old coffee for the Batik Technique. I also sprayed on some Walnut Ink too since my coffee wasn't very dark.

Batik with Alcohol Ink

Instead of using dye inks, I added alcohol inks after clear embossing the image, and instead of using xerox paper, I used white cardstock, so the ironed-off image can be made into a card or ATC also.

Anyone doing the Batik Technique? We'd love to see what you're making.

I love the reverse image this creates. You could use both on the same card if the image you choose is not too large.

I love the blue you used with the heron, Deb. I guess I'm going to have to invest in some glossy CS...

There are so many fun ways with glossy c/s. You will be glad you have some, AQ.

This may be a stupid question, but.... When you say use zerox paper do you mean plain copier or typing paper or is it some specially coated paper?

Default day old coffee?

What is this leftover coffee of which you speak? I've heard of leftover wine, too. These are both oxymorons, IMHO. Love the batik technique results. Just starting to ease back into a sense of normalcy here, after some more health troubles, although my supplies are still buried in another room. Just starting to dig out stuff, and get back to using it. Baby steps, I know.
