Designing with Alcohol Inks

May 16, 2017

This week a group of 7 students from Canada and Washington came together at our studio for Session 7 of 8,  5 day sessions for Level 3 Studies in Art and Design. In session 7 we are completing projects, projecting new ones and have a little time to try out a new medium of alcohol ink on paper.  Not, of course drinkable alcohol but the fluid one that drips, spatters and runs without control on the translucent or transparent paper surface. We chase the ink around the paper with plastic spatulas and drip it on with pipettes to create spidery, bubbly shapes and patterns.  As you can see it’s very messy and has a life force of it’s own with colors that are not shy but very bold and saturated.  Thank you ladies (Gladiolas) for sharing a few exuberant pieces on our blog.  Have a look at our course brochure to see what else this group of art students are studying.   Gail Harker
