Workshop | Amazing Alcohol Inks with Laura Hummel
Instructor: Laura Hummel
Date: Saturday, May 20 2017
Time: 10:30-4:30 pm
Class Fee: $68
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 but simple tools. You will make a small abstract to add tangle 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. Final touches will be to add details with pen and ink.
