Orders are beginning to come in for my 3rd and newest DVD, Piñata Alcohol Inks On Ceramic Tile now available on my website. My first 2 DVDs Level 1 and Level 2 Dreamscaping with June Rollins® featured Ranger/Adirondack Alcohol Inks. It’s only natural the folks that bought the first two DVDs are asking, why the switch?
Why does any artist experiment with different brands of paper, paint and brushes? Because different brands and combinations yield different effects.
I was actually introduced to Piñata Alcohol Inks by a student during one of my workshops in 2010. I remember her singing the praises of “Sapphire Blue.” Finally, three years later, after trying it, I understand why.
Dreamscape No. 340 on Ceramic Tile With Piñata Sapphire Blue
I consider Ranger/Adirondack Alcohol Inks, which I continue to use in my beginner workshops on yupo, a user-friendly, versatile ink. I was content to use only Ranger/Adirondack Alcohol Inks until I began working on ceramic tile.
Finished art tiles on decorative boxes would not be under glass and would need to be sealed. Ranger/Adirondack Alcohol Inks can be used on tile, but when it came to sealing, I discovered a little more care was needed.
The sometimes unpredictable results of sealing Ranger/Adirondack led me to try other brands. Piñata, a thicker alcohol ink, was the one that had little to no change when sealed.
And the colors were soooo intense. Plus, their white, which is called Blanco behaved totally different than Ranger Snowdrop and Piñata Rich Gold that has actual gold metal flakes yielded completely different results than Ranger Gold Metallic…..all of which and more I demonstrate in my 3rd DVD, Piñata Alcohol Inks On Ceramic Tiles Dreamscaping With June Rollins®
Let’s Keep Dreaming 🙂
