Alcohol inks on plastic


I had a go at painting some of the gutter guard mentioned in the last post. I used Pinata alcohol inks.

I couldn't find any 'metallics', so had a go at laying down a base coat of white, topped with a golden yellow. The result is not bad - although in close up (not to mention daylight!) I see that there are little bits of white on the edges. I could always go over them again. I might have a go at weaving some threads and torn strips through this stuff and see what I get.

I got Tracy Bautista's book, Collage Unleashed yesterday. Only had a chance to flick through so far - too many ideas to absorb at once, and the whole effect is slightly overwhelming, almost chaotic - I think I will have to take time to really study each page and really LOOK, so as not to be overwhelmed by the visual impact of the whole thing.

Hi,
its not nice to finish a book at a time itself. Because if you try like that your interest for reading slowly go off and you get bored day by day. so take time and read and try to understand the content there they mentioned.
