Play time experiments

I love the colors of Ranger's Alcohol Inks and wanted to see if I can paint with them.

This is a piece of 5x7 Yupo.
With a brayer I added black India Ink


I placed the Trivet Remnant on the Yupo and took a baby wipe and took off the ink to see the stencil design.

Using a brush, I tried to paint on the alcohol inks but that didn't work. It dries fast to I can't get it to look nice. So I just dripped the inks on and let them dry.

It looks really cool. You can't tell from these pictures but the alcohol inks are glossy when dry. I'm not a glossy person so I'm not sure I like it. The India Inks aren't glossy but I do like using them with the India Inks and high flow acrylics.

As you play with supplies, you find out what you like and don't like. I do love using Yupo so there will be more experiments.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Crafter's Workshop provided me with stencils to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own because I do love to use them.
