Technique Of the Week: Alcohol Ink Splatters

Hello from Kathie McGuire. We're bringing you a project from the current newsletter and hope that you'll join in the fun by trying the technique and sharing it with all of the other TJ fans on the Yahoo group. This is the Alcohol Ink Splatters from the latest newsletter. If you want a fast, colorful, knock-your-socks-off background for an image or just for an embellisment (like the flower I used here), then drag out your alcohol inks and spend the next five or ten minutes creating a fabulous one-of-a-kind stunning piece of art. I didn't have canned air, so I took apart an old blow pen, removed the dried out pen, and then used the blow bulb by squeezing it closely to the alcohol inks. The process worked great! This is one of the best techniques I've ever played with on TJ; it's extremely fast, fun, and the results are quite impressive. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day! Kathie
