Alcohol Ink on Yupo Paper

These are so much fun to do!
Alcohol inks come in a wide variety of colors now,
not like when they first came out years ago.
And the yupo paper is non-porous so it is exactly 
what you need for this technique to work.
I love the way the colors are unpredictable.
They work differently every time you use them.
I made about twenty backgrounds and have been
slowly tangling on them.
I use an XS Pitt pen, works great gliding across the yupo! 
So much yumminess!
I love it!

Alcohol inks are a product of Ranger.

  1. The way those two green sections bottom far left & far right act as a frame for the whole piece to stand on is wonderful; the bottom right crescent leaf is a wonderful part which has me just gazing at it.

    1. i love the way the alcohol inks work. they really have a mind of their own within some limitations you set :)

  2. Alice - this is great! I guess I need to get me some Yupo paper. Do you think Glossy photo paper would work for this? Hope you are having a great summer.

    1. yes, glossy photo paper will work for sure. that's what we used to use back before yupo :) in the old days . hahahahaha! and i actually used some photo paper recently to make sure nothing had changed. have fun!


I've been waiting to hear from you :).
