Welcome back & now to the really interesting part.
Firstly I would like to enlighten you with the method used for colouring your UTEE.
Alcohol inks (various colours)
Blending solution (Ranger)
Mixing Pots (used yoghurt pots or plastic cups)
Wooden sticks (lolly sticks or stainless steel spatula)
In fact this is achieved by using alcohol inks which are incorporated into small batches of clear UTEE to give you a colour pallette. This really reduces the need for purchasing coloured UTEE (I think the only available brand is Rangers Suze Weinberg). I have used both Ranger and Letraset Tria inks for the colouring. The Tria inks come in Pantone colours if you want to be really accurate with colourways and the Ranger in a series of 24 good colours. Main difference is that the Ranger inks come in a 25ml bottle whilst the Tria in a 40ml bottle. I made a series of colour swatches of the Ranger inks by cutting gloss cardstock into 2cm x 3.5cm strips and adding 4 drops of Ranger Alcohol Blending Solution with 2 drops of coloured ink and drying with a gentle heat from a heat gun. I arranged the finished swatches in colour groups and using a brad fixed them together. This made it easy to select my colour pallette.
To be honest you will not use much of this coloured UTEE in comparison to the clear UTEE needed when we get onto the method, but it is essential to use it.
