Alcohol Ink Art

Hello everyone. Today I am bringing you something a little different done with my Spectrum Noir refills. Here is a page from my art journal. It was my very first time painting with alcohol ink and I loved every minute of it.

Due to the nature of the paper, an acrylic base/primer was used. I rubbed with metallic beeswax and then painted away using Spectrum Noir refills. The sky is IB3, LV3, CR6... the grass is JG1 and JG2.  The trees were painted with DG3 and DG4


I still need lots of practice but it was super fun!
