If you’ve been wanting to learn about alcohol inks, this class is for you! In this Beginners class, we’ll start by covering safety precautions and how to set up your workspace. Students will be guided through preparing and working on a variety of surfaces, including Yupo, canvas, and black modelling film. You’ll use a variety of tools such as heat guns and canned air to achieve cool effects. You’ll also learn about Metallics and Opaque Whites. Participants will create several works including: an abstract, a landscape, and a floral piece. We’ll also discuss mounting and finishing options.
