Alcohol Ink is a fluid liquid, heavily saturated colour with a beautiful dreamy movement, painting technique and is also the name for colors based in alcohol. NO ARTISTIC EXPERIENCE REQUIRED! That is the magic of Alcohol Inks! You can make art on Opus Stone Paper, Yupo paper, or ceramic tiles. Unlike acrylic paints, alcohol inks can be “revived”. This means that when dried ink comes into contact with fresh ink or pure alcohol, it reacts and can be further processed.
If you are sensitive to odours, you may want to avoid this class as the inks are diluted with rubbing alcohol. Please wear paint clothes and gloves.
Students must provide their own supplies:
- Rubbing Alcohol – 99% if possible, if not 70% is ok.
- Alcohol Ink, various colors including metallics
- Squeeze bottle for the alcohol
- Claro Extender
- Papers: Opus Stone Paper, Yupo, and 4×6 photo gloss paper
- Straw or Camera lens blower
- Optional: little piece of lace, Q-tips
- Paint clothes & gloves
