    Water shimmers so that will be my key to remembering to use water on watercolor paper and shimmer paper. Thank you for sharing your experiments, Miss Scientist Connie!

    Connie, this is an awesome tutorial. Just recently, I had asked about water versus rubbing alcohol  and you did answer my question. This is a great way to visibly see the affect of the two.  Thank you for this video.

    Using alcohol could save some money if you don’t have that alcohol marker in the color you need especially in a small area. Great ideal. Thanks for the tip

    Does it matter which strength the alcohol is…70% or 90%?

    Thanks for sharing Connie. Unfortunatly in Australia we can only by rubbing alcohol that is for medicinal use in a very small bottle. I will get some and test this out.

  24. Deborah Anne says:

    Is it that the alcohol blends the ink better than the water on everything except watercolor paper? Thank you
