Working with Alcohol Inks and RESIN 

with Linda Wakeman

Two-day workshop:

Saturday and Sunday,

January 11 and 12, 2020

12pm - 3pm 

$70.00

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.
