So, I tried making alcohol ink with methylated spirits and it didn't really work. The metho sucked the ink out of the markers ok, but it just doesn't stain the way a Sharpie does (my only experience with alcohol ink).

I didn't have any rubber gloves to wear when squeezing out the ink cartridges so I slipped my hands inside a couple of zip lock bags, and they just rinsed clean with water. I then tried some on an aluminium can and I could wipe it straight off with paper towel even after it appeared to be dry. It has, however, stained my hands wonderfully, in spite of the zip lock bag effort.

I'm sure the tutorials I've seen don't require the markers to be of the permanent variety, so it must be the methylated spirits I guess. I might have to try with some vodka, at least that way if it doesn't work I can still drink the rest of the bottle!
