Creative Chemistry 102 - Day 4

Thursday was alcohol ink day.  First up was patina, which he's done videos on before.  I wanted to try it, but could not find my picket fence mixative which was very annoying.and I didn't have any tinsel to try tinting that.  But there were techniques that I loved:

Faded Layers:

I really liked this.  its like reverse stencilling.  Using the stencils and blending solution to lift colour.  Lots of fun.


An oldie from the original Compendium, but one i've not tried yet.  Still not mastered it, as first attempt ended up very muddy, and the second I ran out of ink.  Third time is the charm I guess.
