Alcohol ink technique - tutorial.
Alcohol ink fades and wispy is a technique that a lot of people love, including me. When I was new I spend a lot of time trying to learn this and over the years I have found many different ways of achieving this look.
One of my absolute favorite techniques is tilting. So much fun to do.
It was tricky at first, but with a little practice I started getting better and better at it, and now I can’t stop the tilting….
It is so fascinating to watch that ink and brass just float around with the alcohol.
If you haven’t tried this yet… I hope you will.
I made this piece on Nara paper with Ranger Amethyst and Piñata brass.
Hope you enjoy the video and thank you so much for watching.
