Linda Stanton will be back for another Alcohol Ink Class. This class will be on Sunday, April 9 from 1:30-4:00pm. The cost is $35.00 and supplies are included.
Please RSVP so we know we will have enough supplies for everyone.
What is Alcohol Ink? (nothing like our paint parties, sorry…) Alcohol inks are acid-free, fast-drying, highly-pigmented inks that can be used to paint on non-porous surfaces, such as Yupo® Synthetic Paper, glossy papers and card stocks, metal, glass, acetate, shrink plastic, and other shiny substrates (like dominoes, if you’re into that sort of thing.)
Alcohol inks are about finding new ways to create using random tools like long cotton swabs, alcohol wipes, needles, toothpicks, eye droppers, etc. You can get your hands dirty (mark of a true creative) and let your imagination take off. It’s all one big experiment. Sometimes the results are controlled, and sometimes they are unexpected. The abstract often becomes more than what was intended; “happy accidents” abound. Ultimately, the process by which you achieve the results are often the most treasured aspect of creating.
Here is some more information about both the beginning class and more advanced techniques provided by Linda including a color chart and supply list.
