Can you use 70% isopropyl alcohol with alcohol ink?
I also determined that, for the most part, 70% alcohol works just fine, but if you’re doing a project where you want to really make the most of the effect the alcohol has on the ink, you might as well give the 90% alcohol a try (especially if you can find it for the same price).
