The is the thirteenth in a series to help you understand why and how Alcohol Inks work. In this lesson we start to look at markers, why use them, how they work, layering finishing up with a demonstration creating a silhouette on a Dreamscape with a black marker. In Part 2 we will look at how to choose markers and the difference between markers and brushes.

Markers come in hundreds of different colors. We benefit from the recent coloring craze as many manufacturers come out with their brand of alcohol ink markers.

Questions and comments are always welcome.
