Quick Guide For Alcohol Ink Art

Firstly, prepare all the necessary materials (Surface, alcohol ink). Start experimenting with smaller surfaces. For instance, A4 sheets can be cut into half and even the back of the sheet can be used. This way you can experiment without wasting much of your material. Next, put a drop of ink of the colour of your choice on the sheet. Let it spread out in a circle on the surface. Pick another colour and put a drop in the first circle. Let it spread and displace the first one. If you are satisfied with your creation, apply beautiful decorations with a brush, cotton swabs or wooden sticks dipped in alcohol. Alternatively, you can apply decorations with a marker on a dry alcohol ink painting.

Create Gradients Easily 

For the creation of gradients, mostly a hair dryer with cold air stage is preferred. However, that requires precision and immense care because alcohol is highly flammable. Never forget to check for the cold setting. Further, you can wave the colours or create individual colour gradients with the help of a straw- simple and convenient. 

It is advisable to practice alcohol art in a room that you can ventilate very well. Make sure you wear rubber gloves. Seal your masterpiece after completion to avoid exposure to UV light (alcohol inks are light sensitive). Stellar surfaces that serve as great canvasses for alcohol ink paintings include: Yupo Paper, Fabric, Metal, Ceramics and Clayboard, Glass.
