Doodlewash June 2018 Art Challenge #5-6


#5 - Balloons

#6 - Shadow Play

. . . . . . .

Alexis Bonavitacola's alcohol ink class has lots of great instruction.
I was hoping to try a few floral inks using her techniques,
 but forgot to buy canned air.
I'm off to get some.

Hope to see you in a few days.

      Canned air is for spreading the alcohol inks on the Yupo paper.

  6. Learning new words on this Blog. Canned air.

    Years ago some enterprising person in the UK was selling empty cans containing fresh air from the Highlands of Scotland, I think. Not sure how successful that was. Also, other people started selling water in bottles originating from various springs in the Country. That was more successful.

    I am thinking of selling boxes filled with the sound of silence. Anyone interested?

    God bless.

    1. Haha!
      If you market those boxes in a creative way, Victor, I bet you'll get some takers.
      Bless you!
