I tried this technique and followed the instructions to the letter. It did not work well with acrylic paints using 185lb acrylic paper. adding more paint did not and using the alcohol did not get to the layer below

I did do this technique in art class and we used sea water. today my fish glistens from the sea water. after the paint dried we added a color in the center with the end of a flat end on to give the effect of polka dots. and came back again with a 3rd color.

I again tried this technique on watercolor paper using water color paints the effect like my fish was small circles not big blotches. when you painted over the 1st layer you get dark spots and adding the alcohol goes right down to the previous layer with a dark color in the center.
