I dream in colour, literally. This was the case the other night when I dreamt about some alcohol ink that wasn’t alcohol ink. And so my experimenting started…
I used my VersaFine Clair ink pads on Yupo paper. Now technically this will never dry, but here is the trick how to create this gorgeous look.
You will need white Yupo paper, blending solution and 3 colours of VersaFine Clair ink.
I used 200gsm Yupo paper in white. Swipe the first colour of ink across the paper once or twice depending on how wide you would like your strip.
Now continue with the second and third colour of ink.
While the ink is still nice and wet use your blending solution and add quite a bit of it onto the ink. Let it sit for a while and then swirl the paper around to mix the colours a bit.
TIP: I also added some into a misting bottle and sprayed the inks to create small drops of texture on it.
Leave to dry. I left mine to dry for a while and still had some stickier areas where the ink pooled that stayed tacky, so I simply used a clear sealant and sprayed that over the paper and left it again. It dried nicely and now all I have to do is use this gorgeous Faux alcohol ink piece for a project.
