GENERAL ART CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS

INTRODUCTION TO ALCOHOL INKS ART (Rosslyn Bosnar) 

Alcohol inks are fast-drying, highly pigmented, alcohol-based inks that are great to use on any hard, non-porous surface including glass, metal, plastic, ceramic, stone, leather and polymer clay. Once the ink is applied, the alcohol evaporates, leaving the dye behind. Once alcohol ink dries, it can be re-wet with rubbing alcohol (91% Isopropyl Alcohol), allowing for unique and versatile effects that cannot be achieved with water-based products like acrylic paint. Alcohol ink is waterproof, adding to its durable properties.

COST:  $75.00 - GST inclusive + Materials fee of $30.00 paid directly to the tutor on the day. This will include a glass Vase, yupo paper, tiles, paint. Students will usually finish two tiles, 1 glass vase and a number of yupo paper  samples.
