Yesterday, I finally couldn’t wait any longer to play with my new Liquitex acrylic ink bottles that had arrived on Friday!



I started out by roughly outlining a hair-do with a brush, then wet the entire inside and went to town, using all the 5 inks that I had gotten. I would put a drop or so of ink in a spot, then get a brush full of water and let the color run and drip toward the same corner, helping it along with wet brushes of various sizes.



I was catching all the drips with a kitchen towel, and once I was done with the dripping hair, this lovely blotchy pattern had developed on the kitchen towel, so I smoothed it out, dried it and then pulled it apart (it was a 2-ply) and used it for the background!

It made for a lovely pitted texture throughout the background! And even though I mod-podged it on thoroughly, it was still receptive to color, stamps and acrylics!
