Adult / Child (rubbing) Alcohol Inks

ID : 16146   
« back to classes page
Alcohol inks provide a variety of creative possibilities! You'll learn to manipulate the ink on ceramic tiles and glossy photo paper to create images of color and flow of design. Kids love this process and learn an art form that can turn into one-of-a-kind gifts for all occasions. Alcohol inks are an acid-free, highly pigmented and fast drying medium used on non-porous surfaces. They will stain, so wear art clothes or bring an apron to protect clothing. Contact instructor for a materials list - Approximate materials cost will be $15. One registration covers adult and child, ages 6+.

Please read:  Alcohol Inks: These can be purchased at any hobby/craft store for around $10 for a pack of three colors. I suggest getting two packages of varying colors. They come in small bottles but it doesn’t take much. I usually use Jim Holtz or Adirondack brands. Tiles/Photo Paper: Alcohol inks only work on non-porous surfaces. For this class, we will be using ceramic tiles and photo paper. The tiles can be purchased at Home Depot or similar store. They are not expensive – usually $.33 – $1.50. They are the tiles that go on a backsplash or counter and can be found in the tile department. White works best. Get 6 tiles (3 for parent and 3 for child), any size you would like. I will supply the photo paper. Rubbing Alcohol: Get a bottle of Ethyl Rubbing Alcohol at the highest alcohol content available. Walgreen’s has 91% and occasionally I can find 99% - but not very often. A materials list can be found by contacting instructor at Approximate cost will be $15. One registration covers adult and child, ages 6+.
