Working with Alcohol Inks and RESIN
with Linda Wakeman
Saturday and Sunday,
May 2 and 3, 2020
12pm - 3pm
Linda looks forward to sharing her secrets in a fun and versatile medium. The workshop will show different techniques of inking tile (and Yupo paper, if desired).
Linda will show us how to make a landscape or abstract with alcohol ink on a 6x6 ceramic tile in the first session. The tiles will be sealed and the next day resin will be applied. The tiles will have to stay till the Monday afternoon before they can be moved.
Once you learn this technique, it can be used for many forms of art, creating fabulous, high-gloss finishes. Linda will show various ways these tiles can be hung on walls or easels, and how to put a backing on them. This is also a great technique for making your own coasters.
