We are literally obsessed with alcohol inks! After stalking a local artist who is a master with this medium (check out our blog post about her here!) - we can't put the stuff down and are so excited to share our enthusiasm with you! So come see what all the fuss is about!
We're so excited to introduce you to the amazing & unusual properties of this incredible art medium! If you're not already familiar, alcohol inks are highly saturated, fast-drying inks that are used on hard surfaces, including glass, metal, plastic, ceramic, stone, leather, polymer clay and more. They move and blend easily and dry super fast! Once dry, they are indelible and impervious to water, they clean up with alcohol and re-wet themselves, allowing for unique effects and techniques not easily achieved with water-based systems.
Alcohol inks are unparalleled for vibrancy & transparency.
After our creative guru gives you an introduction of all materials, including how to safely use the inks, we'll demo techniques & get your wheels turning with a number of examples and ideas!
Each participant will embellish a ceramic succulent planter, working at their own pace. We provide the technique & all tools + materials, including the planter, alcohol inks, & blending solution, as well as a ceramic tile on which to practice your technique!
And as an added bonus, you'll get to select and plant a succulent in your planter before heading home to show off your creation!
A note of caution: Alcohol inks emit fumes (very similar to the smell and intensity of rubbing alcohol). We'll be working in a well-ventilated area with gloves, but if you have sensitivities to this sort of thing, this workshop may not be for you. The vapors could cause irritation to lungs, skin & eyes.
Show up. Make something cool. Get your Modern Craft on!
