I had a Dreamscaping weekend because the Alcohol Ink Dreamscapes I have for sale at the John C. Campbell Folk School Craft Shop needed replenishing.
For a creative challenge I decided to see how many varied Dreamscapes could be created with just 3 ink colors.
Here they are. When I study them I see what I was looking for: warm and cool yellows, reds and blues and a host of neutrals ranging from light to dark in value.
How did I get so much variance?
- Color Mixing
- Adding 91% Alcohol or Blending Solution
- Mixatives: Silver, Gold, Copper, Pearl, Snow Cap
These were my primary triad workhorses.
If you haven’t tried Alcohol Ink Dreamscaping, you may want to give it a go. It’s fun, relaxing and spurs experimental explorations. Learn more in the Dreamscaping Shop.
Happy, Creative Pursuits To All!
