Hi everyone!

I had so much fun thermochromic ink this week and want to share the experience with all of you.


1. Red thermochromic powder + yellow acrylic paint  / Time : 1 mins

I thought it would be fun to make a texture of thermochromic power. That was quite successful. You can see the pigment ratio in the picture.

2.Blue thermochromic powder + yellow thermochromic powder + acrylic polymer / Time : 4 mins

This one has the longest time the ink that turns transparent.

4. Blue acrylic paint + yellow thermochromic powder / not successful

There was no changes with this one. I think I need to add more pigment for this one.

7. blue acrylic paint + yellow thermochromic powder / Time : 0.5 min

I also applied the thermochromic ink on fabric but I think the result wasn’t that good. The effects on paper are better.
