Alcohol Ink Supplies
Plastic tablecloth - this can get very messy, need to protect the table.
Plastic gloves - this is optional (it is very messy, will stain your fingers for a few days)
Roll of paper towel
Spray bottle - finer the mist the better
Q tips / cotton pads
99% Isopropyl alcohol - usually behind the pharmacy counter
Yupo Paper - Waterproof Synthetic paper. I recommend buying the full sheets rather than a pad and cut it down. It's also much cheaper.
Pinata Alcohol Inks - these are nice and bright colours - see below for recommended colours. You will need at least 6 colours to start and more if you would like. you can buy these individually, usually around $8/bottle or in packs.
Copic Ink Refills - are also another great option for inks. They are a bit more in cost. If getting Copic ink, you want the darkest tone of the colour you want.
Bright yellow, orange, red, purple, blue, green turquoise and dark grey.
