A couple weeks ago we went to Art in the Garden for a Alcohol Ink Painting party. It is a MUST do!!! We had the best time creating fun art and chatting with the girls!
We learning how to paint with rubbing alcohol and ink! We were given sheets of paper, jar of alcohol, a pipette, a paper straw, and an extra small spray bottle of alcohol.
We started by dropping the alcohol onto the paper with the pipette, then we would drop our ink color of choice. Then we would blow the ink around on the paper creating different movement with the ink.
I know I keep saying this but it truly was so much fun being able to mix colors. If you let a spot dry, then added more alcohol you could move the colors around, mix the colors, create new colors, create different type of textures. It was AMAZING! We either move the ink around by blow with or without the straw.
My favorite was when we got to bring out the metallic ink!!! It creates all different type of textures and of course amazing sparkle. 😉
After a couple of test papers we were given the option to make two different type of final pieces. An art piece that was 8 x 11 or four coasters.
It was the BEST night being able to hang out with the girl, learn new art techniques, and just have an amazing time!!! Check them out here.
