I used a heavy weight paper so my straw didn't move well and the ink just soaked into the paper!
Drops of ink are placed in a row (red/yellow/green/blue/purple for example) then use the side of a straw to move the inks creating a round shape. Peggy's turned out great (see my post from yesterday)!!!
The top piece is just a bad choice of inks! HA
Failure 2...spraying paper with alcohol then drops of ink on top. Again, I was using a heavy weight paper and not the Yupo.
Failure 3...I was using Tyvek fabric/paper...colors awful and the paper just soaked the ink right up!
Now some success pieces! At least I think so...These were my Yupo paper covered with hand sanitize! Then drops of alcohol inks dripped on top.
Both of these turned out quite nice.
Back to covering a sheet of paper with inks, although I was using the shiny side of freezer paper. I used my fingers to spread the inks!
Next you squirt several lines of ink onto the paint then take wax paper that you have fan-folded and press the paper/folds into the ink; tilt the paper and squirt another color of ink under the waxed paper folds allowing the ink to drop down under the wax paper.
These are my favorites!
I kept the wax paper with the ink on them! I know I can use them somehow/somewhere!!??
This piece was using saran wrap in place of wax paper. Similar technique. This is always a good technique to try. Works really well with sun printing to give a crackle effect.
This next piece was just placing inks on freezer paper (shiny side) and spraying with alcohol.
