Alcohol Ink Painting

Sunday, March 04, 10:30 AM
4:30 PM

Using alcohol inks is a fun way to create interesting paintings and to add color to different surfaces such as glass and metals. Alcohol inks are an acid-free, highly-pigmented, and fast drying medium to be used on non-porous surfaces. Mixing colors can create a vibrant marbled effect and the possibilities are limited only by what you are willing to try.
