Live with Anita - Getting creative with Alcohol Inks

Alcohol inks can are an exciting medium that is free flowing you can blow the inks or drop it onto the surface and watch it develop. Depending on the surface used it can be a little tricky to control as it drifts on the non-porous surfaces. Fun to use on non-porous or porous surfaces such as glass, ceramics, Yupo paper, canvas, leather and many more.

Pinata alcohol inks are ethanol-based inks full of rich and vibrant colours and

in this demonstration I will try and control the Alcohol inks on Frisk Yupo Artboard to create a painting of pink flowers while still allowing the fun characteristics of the ink to spread and merge.
