Denise creates beautiful unique alcohol artwork and enjoys teaching her fun style and techniques!
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.
You will 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!
Painting Birch Trees with Alcohol Inks
Everyone loves birch trees and in this workshop Denise will teach you the secrets of painting them with alcohol inks! You will learn how to use masking fluid and simple handmade tools to create a beautiful birch tree scene. You wont believe how easy it is!
Kristen Powers (Kae Pea)
Kristen creates beautiful colorful artwork and owns Rubber Moon Stamps!
