    When you first begin to paint the feather you show a bottle of alcohol. Is that what is on your brush? Are you removing some of the ink from the background and then repainting with other colors of ink? Thanks for sharing.

      I am confused too. I have the same question as above. It would have been nice to have the artist explain the technique as I am sadly not understanding how to make this interesting piece.

    Hi Karen & Joanda…
    This is a time lapse demo by Denise Balcanoff. She is using some 91% isopropyl alcohol in a small container to wet her brush. With a brush dampended with alcohol, you can LIFT out the alcohol ink .. This technique is called lifting. Then she comes back with alcohol ink that is thickened by allowing the alcohol ink to evaporate, and paints on top of the area where she lifted out.
