2. Show materials thatI will use. 3. Let's get started. 4. Adirondack

3. Let's get started. I am going to create two papers with alcohol inks

Alcohol inks are the primary paint  on Yupo paper that I am showing but I am also showing how other materials work on the Yupo for a comparison.  They will include Chinese Inks, Jaquard Silk Paints and watercolors.

Video 3   I will show an alternative to Yupo by experimenting with two different papers. First I will show printing paper for photos. It's glossy (I already know it's not the same but has qualities of its own) and a piece of drawing paper with Liquitex Varnish on it that works similarly but not exactly. 

Video 4. I will show an example of me starting the finished project. I am going to give two assignments to choose from. Participants can choose from the abstract piece or they can turn their abstract piece into something using Sharpies or Pitt pens.

Video 5 Thanks for watching - a few final pieces and what I did with them. Don't forget to download your work. If you need help please reach out
