How you ever wanted to create beautiful flowers but thought it would be too hard? Alcohol Ink painting is more abstract which gives you the freedom to paint without rules. Beware – it is addictive!
You will learn the basics of alcohol ink including:
- What is Alcohol Ink?
- How can it be used?
- What tools are required? (Note: ISO alcohol will be used in this class)
Although there are many ways of painting with Alcohol Ink (AI), this class will focus on blowing flower petals with an airbrush. After understanding AI basics, the teacher will demo how to blow petals. Each student will get to practice on a white 6” x 6” white tile.
