This is video number two in my series of alcohol ink abstracts. Yesterday, I shared a blog post on creating on the NARA paper rounds. This time, I’m creating on the BACK SIDE of Kirkland Photo paper which works similar to Yupo and NARA paper. It’s a much less-expensive alternative and great for quick projects like this one.
In the video below, I share a simple demonstration on pouring, controlling the flow (within reason) and using Snowcap and Mixatives to add depth, value and a little something extra.
I also find that if I’m in a “creative slump” (It happens to all of us.), I can do a series of these and I’m able to get my creative juices flowing. It’s very therapeutic for me! Enjoy!
