I skipped Weeks 2 through 4, since I already started late. I've done heat embossing, anyway (week 2), and I'm not really as interested in Paint Dabbers (tried 'em, didn't like 'em) or crackle paint (week 4). This week (5) is using alcohol inks. I'd never used them before this class. They really can give a very pretty coloring to glossy surfaces, although to get the effect I liked, I really had to play with it a bit.
