Discovering the Playfulness of Alcohol Inks
In this class
you will reconnect with your inner child through exploring the playful and very
forgiving medium, alcohol inks. These very beautiful and saturated inks will
have you “oohing and ahhing” with each
drop of color you drip on your paper.
discover the interesting properties of the inks, how they blossom, and how to
manipulate them to create amazing works of art!
In the 1st
demonstration I will show you how to experiment dripping and dropping the ink
on yupo paper. We will have fun loosening up, taking risks, and letting the
inks flow in all their inky glory! We will also learn how to manipulate and
layer the inks by using simple tools, brushes, and isopropyl alcohol.
In the 2nd
demonstration you will learn how to create a “Little Landscape” using the “pour
and flow” method, and add details and texture through brush work.
By the end of
this class you will have produced two pieces of work that you will be proud to
frame and display on your wall!

In this new Design Team project for Proxxon Tools create these beautiful copper disks to add to any jewelry piece! I love to mix metals and had these 2 empty bangles that I had added verdigris patina to but didn't add anything else yet. I had a sheet of copper metal and decided to use my disk cutter to cut the round disks out and the Proxxon Drill Press ( TBM 115) to drill the holes for the jump rings. For instructions please visit the Proxxon Blog and lets have some fun making these unique copper disks!
Create this beautiful inspirational necklace by using Proxxon Tools!
Wearing inspirational pieces always helps to reinforce that feeling of joy and hope. In this necklace I used a metal embosser ( Vintaj Big Kick) to get the lovely texture on the copper metal pieces and the Proxxon Bench Drill Press TBM 115 . I have had these 2 metal door pieces for awhile and was waiting for the right project to use them. Visit Proxxon's Tiny Tool Time Blogger !
