Painting with Alcohol Ink

Alcohol ink is an interesting medium. It has beautiful stained glass affects. I just started experimenting with it about a month ago. The chaos is part of it’s charm.

While in my alcohol ink phase, I created Mother’s Day flowers. (Sunflowers are my mom’s favorite.)

I’m so in love with them that I ended up hosting a class on it at my library. I demonstrated some of the basic techniques, and eventually turned that into jellyfish.
