Alcohol Inks have a mind of their own and they are crazy fun! In this workshop we will learn to tame the ink and will focus on creating flowers on tiles. Various tools will be used to place the ink on the tile, including brushes, toothpicks, cotton pads and Qtips. We will also move the ink by blowing air through a straw and using canned air to create dramatic floral designs. Each participant will complete two tiles in class.
Alcohol inks stain clothing so please wear something appropriate. We will also be using 93% rubbing alcohol, which has a strong odor.
