This was one of my first attempts at controlling the uncontrollable medium of alcohol ink. What is it, you ask? Alcohol ink is the ink you apply to rubber stamp pads. The craft of stamping has given us a new medium to play with. Ttransparent ink dripped on a sheet of Yupo (PVC plastic in sheet form) coated in alcohol is quite the wrestling match to watch. On this piece, I used a yellow, blue and red to create what you see here. It didn't begin ANYTHING like this, but when it stopped moving (dried) this is how it ended.

Alcohol Ink on Yupo
Tomorrow I'll show you how AI looks when you TRY to control it. I put on my cowgirl boots and grabbed a lasso... well, you'll see.
