Workshop Overview

Alcohol inks are wonderfully vibrant and yet translucent, and they work especially well on ceramic tiles. Learn how to work with this vivid ink media in a one-day instructional workshop. You will learn several techniques and receive lots of tips and tricks for success. We will begin the day with a few exercises to familiarize you with the media and techniques for working with it. It is very easy to "wipe the slate clean" and begin again, so participants will feel free to play and experiment.

• Several colors of your choice of Alcohol Ink bottles. Recommended brands:

Ranger ,Tim Holtz, Jacquard Pinata Colors
