I stumbled upon a website called the Alcohol Ink Community where you can see some amazing talent by AI artists. There is a video on the site where a lady paints stones with AI so I figured I'd give it a try on some ceramic tiles we had left over. I broke the tile for a more natural look.
I used canned air to blow the inks around. This is highly addicting; once you start, you can't stop. To finish off the piece, I covered it with Glossy Accents for a nice shine.
If you aren't familiar with Alcohol Ink (AI), this is what it looks like:
It is basically alcohol based ink that dries quickly. It works best on glossy photo paper, Yupo paper, glass and other items but does not work on regular cardstock or watercolor paper. I had a lot of this ink from my card teaching days, so I dug it out and gave it another try.
You should check out the amazing talent in this group. They also have a Facebook page for the AI Community which you can join for free. The members are very helpful to beginners like myself.
I hope to work on some other pieces later today. Wouldn't it be fun to make some stones for jewelry out of this?
