Amazing Alcohol Ink
Instructor: Laura Hummel
Date: Sunday, February 5th, 2023
Time: 10:30am - 5:00pm
Class Fee: $95
Description: Get playful and fascinated about the versatility, vibrancy, and spontaneity of alcohol inks. We will try them on a variety of substrates using some unusual simple tools. You will make a small abstract to add tangle, doodles and pattern like designs. The star of the class is the amazing Yupo paper that is waterproof, super smooth, and will not tear. If you make a mistake, it can be wiped clean! You will create a painting on Yupo… perhaps, flowers or other botanicals, abstracts, houses, fish or animals… and just have fun. Negative space will be painted to make our drawings spectacular! You will add the final touches and details with pen and ink.
Note: Laura will have a variant for those who have taken her alcohol ink before and want to come back for more.
