I belong to wonderful groups on Facebook – Alcohol Ink Artists, Alcohol Ink & Mixed Media and KW Artists and Friends. There are over 2,000 members from all over the world. Our theme this week at Alcohol Ink Artists was abstracts. I decided to post this picture:
My dear friend, Birdie came up with this method of folding paper with the ink inside.
I added a white gel pen to emphasize the shapes.
For this post, I’m going to take you through how it’s done.
Yupo Paper comes in different weights. I usually use 74# Cover Paper. For the above picture I used 62# transluscent paper that is lighter and easy to fold. For the following I used #104 Transluscent paper which wasn’t as easy to fold but worked fine.
