In this class, students will learn the basics to create ethereal, airy, magical alcohol ink paintings with movement and grace!
Supplies Note: If you do NOT own any kind of airbrush, you will still learn some techniques in this class; they may simply take longer, require more gravity (tipping of the paper), and a bit more time. There may be some effects you cannot achieve, however, so I recommend a powered air-mover. To save yourself some money, you may try using straws and small blowers in conjunction with hair dryers; I don’t use one because they heat up my studio and blow too hard! But your hairdryer may prove to be able to achieve the effects shown. You may decide to try it with the tools you have, and only invest in more equipment if you find you love alcohol ink and wish to dive in with more control. This class is appropriate for artists working in any genre – cardmaking, fine art, art journaling, etc. Lessons are taught on a small paper – each is 4″ x 6″ photo paper – but can be adapted to a larger size as desired.
