    Very cool – do you seal it with anything after the heat set?

    Yes, an acrylic sealer works well. I’ve made some beautiful pieces using the alcohol ink. The one problem with the ink process is that if you apply any heat (like a torch) to the piece after it’s been inked, the ink will disappear! So make sure the inking is the last step you take. Also, don’t get the piece get wet!
