Have so very much fun putting these together – Let me know if you have any questions about this Alcohol Ink – things I’ve already been asked is how does it differ from Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Ink – I can’t give you technical ingredient differences because I have NO Clue!  BUT I can tell you from using Tim Holtz inks for a long time and loving them – what I have found from using both – brief overview – please feel free to ask if you have other questions! 🙂

Viva Decor Marble Tintes – Alcohol Inks

  • Intense Colors
  • Does not dry instantly
  • Use just like any other alcohol ink, by itself, with an applicator or sponge
  • The only thing that breaks down this ink is more alcohol, so have hand sanitizer and rubbing alcohol ready for clean up
  • White, Silver and Gold colors that are not iridescent additives or mixatives but true colors (BEAUTIFUL!)
  • There are only about 9-12 colors to choose from – I do not have the exact number of colors available in the US
  • Use it on glass, metal, paper, etc….
  • Acid Free for safe scrapbooking
  • Has an activator that you can use to blend colors like the “Blender Pen” by Tim Holtz

Tim Holt Adirondacks Alcohol Inks

  • Lots of Color Options – I BELIEVE there are 48 colors in total including the mixatives
  • Fast Drying – this is almost an instant dry alcohol ink
  • Beautiful color choices, but not as intense of a color as Viva
  • Layer colors, blend and marble colors the same as Viva
  • Has many uses for craft projects, glass, chipboard, paper, etc…
  • Acid Free for your scrapbooking protection
  • Use with Applicator, Sponge or by itself to create different effects
  • Smaller bottles than Viva Decors

So that’s a little summary – very similar in they are just both alcohol inks – the major differences – Dry Time, Color Selections and Color Intensity 🙂
