Textured Alcohol Inking

Have been playing today with all sorts of bits and getting really messy!!!

This is ok for a first attempt but I shall certainly be having another try as I think I need to apply more PVA at the final stage before applying the AI's.

Both pieces have masking tape, tissue paper, cellophane and netting in them to texture the card.


The AI's were splattered onto this piece which meant that the ink got inside the netting and on the cellophane. I dipped a pom-pom (which I had to make first) into blending solution to wash the colours together


I used the wooden applicator and the felt to apply the AI's to this piece. It was really hard to cover the netting and the gaps were much harder to get the ink into. For some reason, the ink would not take to the cellophane on this one

Oh, these DO look interesting. I think the fact that its's resisted the cello in some parts has helped to make the pattern.

Good work.
