Understanding Alcohol Ink – Lesson #12 Brushes

We love brushes. We use them with other media so why not use them with alcohol inks? Here we look at a variety of brush shapes, synthetic and synthetic blend brushes, layering and mixing and more.

The is the twelth in a series to help you understand why and how Alcohol Inks work. In this lesson we look at brushes – different shapes, quality, layering and mixing colors, the affect of evaporation and how to reconstitute dye left in the palette.

You may want to go back and watch Lesson #3 for Push and Glide with a brush.

Questions and comments are always welcome.
