I am using quarter sheets of glossy card stock and a spritz bottle of alcohol. You can also use blender fluid, but the alcohol works for me and is cheaper! I wet my cotton ball with alcohol and then put a few drops of ink and started dabbing on the paper. Get another cotton ball for another color and work at it until I like the looks of it. Don't overwork it. Sometimes I like to dab a little metallic paint from a Krylon pen. It reacts to the alcohol based ink and looks great. I did not do that on these examples.
Sometimes it is fun to get together with a couple of friends, share inks and just have a polished stone party!
Debbie also happened to be doing polished stone on her blog so check it out here. Her previous post was on coloring with Copics, which is what we will be moving on to now.
My Gina K paper I ordered has not come yet. I know a lot of people do blog tutorials and get money or stuff for showing how to use it...not me....I just do it because I want you to have fun like me! If it doesn't come today, I will use other paper. Have a very polished day!
