Alcohol ink has something for everyone, from professional artists, to those who have never painted at all.
In this class we’ll experiment with alcohol inks to learn how these bright, vibrant, colors react and interact. You’ll learn the basic techniques of painting with alcohol inks using various methods, such as free flow, pouring, and painting with brushes, cotton swabs and more! Jane will give you step by step instructions for using Alcohol Inks to create beautiful abstract landscapes and/or floral designs. You will definitely be inspired to continue with this wonderful medium!
