My Favorite Burn

This was the first tile I set fire to, and I think it is my favorite, so far!!

Playing with Red and another Burn

I bought another set of alcohol inks, and had to play with them immediately!  Needed to try to make a flower, and I think this is ok.

On this smaller, longer tile, I used fire, and just wanted to see what the colors would do.

This one was a really cool burn - even ended up with a flower!

More Play!

More play with alcohol ink!  This one is done on a 9" x 12" piece of Yupo paper.  I'm a little miffed, cause my camera didn't pick up the yummy purple color right.  Believe me, it's bright!

"Under the Sea" 

This one is done on another 4" square white ceramic tile.

"Night Walk"

Here is another alcohol ink "Dreamscape"painting on a 6" x 6" white tile (the first one was 4" square).  This time I used more of a paintbrush to add texture and dimension.  Parts I love, others, not so much - but it really is kind of Zen to work on these!  I'm looking forward to working on Yupo!

Down Another Rabbit Hole!

I know I haven't posted in a long time, but I just haven't been inspired to paint lately.  Of course, once I get started watching YouTube videos, I just have to do something! 

Several years ago, I got on the alcohol ink train -- but I was only working on dominoes, and that faded quickly for me.  But now!  Dreamscapes and flowers on tile!  Set fire to it!  Other wonderful ideas for Yupo!

I ordered a new book -  "Pigments of Your Imagination" by Cathy Taylor.  I haven't gotten it yet, but she shows how to use alcohol ink on various substrates.  So, I went on YouTube!  After spending a little money on Amazon, I think I have everything I need.

This is my first tile "Dreamscape", and I think I am in Love!  More Later!
