Part 1: Exploration

To begin, you will discover how to work with alcohol ink: diluting it, applying it, dragging it and creating patterns. You will also explore different techniques for rehydrating dry ink.

Thanks to its incredible transparency and depth, alcohol ink offers countless creative possibilities. In addition, Yupo is a waterproof and incredibly strong paper that allows you to create shapes, patterns and shades that are impossible to achieve on conventional paper – everything you need to create a totally unique work of art!

Part 2: Abstract landscape

In Part 2, you will bring your abstract landscape to life. Julie will also give several tips and tricks for reworking patterns you aren’t fully happy with.
