Think Ink












I've been messing around with alcohol ink for awhile now - experimenting and playing. I've stamped on photo paper, tyvek, silver spoons, dishes, old found items, metals, plastics and glass. Once I've got the ink dabber out, I'm looking around for anything that needs a splash of colour.
Last week, I picked up some white tiles in various sizes. I'm particularly loving using them as a palette. The ink flows and interacts beautifully on the smooth, hard surface.

These tiles are are 2 inch squares - some of my 'Tree' series. The colour is much more rich on the actual pieces. I've sprayed these with Krylon to protect them, which has given them a matte finish.

I'll be doing a class this spring with the inks. I'll post the date on my website when I get it together.

Thanks gals ... they're fun to play with. Sheryl - they're 'Adirondack, ALCOHOL INKS'. You can get them at Michaels, AC Moore, Hobby Lobby. Wonderful colours - three in a set. You use a solution of alcohol that blends the colours together - on any non-porous surface.
