For years, I wanted to learn watercolors. I loved the light, airy effect and what seemed like versatility with the medium. After taking a 6 week course at the local art center, I was frustrated with the process. Fortunately, it was just about the time I discovered Alcohol Inks. I love this medium! The effects seem to be endless, and they are so fluid that until you seal the image, you can re-wet and manipulate them. The end product, more often than not, can be a wonderful surprise, guided by your intuition.
A big warning here, though - I found out the hard way that the fumes can be toxic. If you are going to delve into this, be sure you have good ventilation and a respirator.
