Well I Tried - Alcohol Drip Technique

Looks promising doesn't it, well please don't be deceived, ha, ha, ha. Well, you know the lovely Hels has been on a big adventure the the old U S of A, and has been to Ranger U, well on her blog she is publishing some tutorials. This is the before pic, well even got out my new craft sheet, my other is in a sorry old state, stained lumpy and bumpy and to top it all today, I got uttee all stuck to it while playing with some moulds that the very kind and thoughtful Anne made for me, but that's another story, OOOh and yes we went to Aintree yesterday, not to bet on the Gee Gees but to a craft show and a great time was had by all of us. Back to the matter in hand, this is the result of my effort below.

I'm not too sure that drip, in my case is how I would describe what happened, it was more like a flood that Noah and his Ark would be proud of. The alcohol ink "Pooled" a bit too much in places then in others I didn't seem to put enough, arhh, never mind, I've had a go, LOL.

Best get a move on, have been off work today and tother arf will be expecting his tea ont table when he gets home, fat chance!!

It looks great to me Tracey :-)
Can't remember what you said you did with the UTEE for the molds but I have held a foil tray over a low flame - not directly on the flame (using crocadile clips to hold the tray). I also have a very cheap non-stick frying pan which I sometimes put a foil tray in so it doesn't melt the UTEE too quickly.
