Abstract Alcohol Ink technique shared by Tony Abbate on the Alcohol Ink Art Community. 

Tony uses video to demonstrate some of the techniques he uses in his work.  He starts off with drops of ink and pushing, pulling and scraping techniques using what I call “manipulators”.  As alcohol ink artists, we all get creative with manipulators.   Let us know in the comments what your favorite manipulators are!     

Tony then uses stencils and illustrator pens to add interesting, geometric detail on top of the ink to take his art to next level! 

Thanks so much, Tony for sharing your techniques and input!   Watch and enjoy!
