What is the Secret of Alcohol Inks?
Alcohol inks are a unique way to create art with vibrant, highly-pigmented colors. Because of the highly concentrated inks, just a small amount of ink will go a long way. Alcohol inks can be used on many surfaces to create cards, beautiful gifts and fine art.
We will experiment with different techniques to create a variety of textures on various surfaces to see how alcohol inks react. In the class, you will create multiple unique projects to take home, including bookmarks, coasters, abstract art, and a nature piece. This class is perfect for all artistic levels and age ranges as beginners and experts alike can create beautiful works of art by combining alcohol inks with their imagination.
Please note: alcohol inks have a strong scent so people with sensitivity to smells or respiratory issues need to be cautious.
