Alcohol ink is a relatively new medium known for its vibrant colors and unpredictable mixing and movements on a slick surface. A wide variety of ink applications will be explored, then used to create beautiful two and three-dimensional work. Using Art Elements, alcohol ink will be applied to Yupo plastic paper, acetate, metal, ceramic tile, and canvas. Students may bring their own supplies, however an “Ink Box” and assorted other materials will be provided.
With a photo of your choice, create a unique 9x12 portrait using vibrant alcohol inks, masking ﬂuid and clear acetate. Select two photos of faces you’d like to ink. Using cell phone or computer apps, reduce the image to two tones; black and white. Bring a standard 8 1/2” x 11” photo copy of each image.
