Learning to Use Alcohol Inks

Saturday 14 November 2020




Sat 14 November, 9:30-15:30


The Artery Art Learning Space, The Historic Village, 159 17th Ave, Tauranga

Alcohol ink has a mind of its own but is a fun medium to use, and this full day workshop is designed particularly for beginners who have never used alcohol inks before.

Have a go at a tile which is relatively easy but something that could be done for Xmas presents. You start off as abstract and then fill in the background and end up with a stunning flower pattern. This can be framed if you want. You will also be working on a black pot and a white pot. Thus you will go home with three exceptional artworks.

Marion is an artist who loves to use alcohol inks for various ways of producing amazing artwork, they can be used for abstract work, or painting as you would with watercolours. The inks have a versatility and vibrancy that when blended with pure isopropyl alcohol, create movement. With the addition of gold enhancements these make visually attractive pieces of art even for beginners.
