How Much Ink Do You Need

In working on samples for a new class, I have been creating jewelry using alcohol inks on transparent clay, with varying results. The results, I've found, depends on the amount of ink, the clay and the backing for your pendant or piece you are creating. I prefer to use the inks, diluted with rubbing alcohol for a more watercolor wash look. The inks grab and penetrate very quickly into the clay, so I have been diluting the inks with alcohol and applying the ink from plastic palette wells with a small brush or q-tips.
