Alcohol Backgrounds

Hello there crafters,

The other night I did a live stream on periscope showing how to create backgrounds using porous substrates such as distress watercolor paper, mixed media paper and some 110lb Neenah solar white card stock as well to create these vibrant fun backgrounds. Sit back and enjoy the rest of this blog post and hope you take a look at the periscope too..

 

  • Cut down your substrates to desired length and width. These are cut down to the standard A2 format,
  • Apply gesso with a silicon brush making sure you smoothe it out before it dries.
  • Apply your choice of alcohol ink colors.
  • Spritz with 91% or higher alcohol for desired effects or you apply with white foam as well..
