A week or so ago when I blogged about my recent makes with alcohol inks I was asked by Rebeca, from rebeccaevanscreate.com, about painting with alcohol inks on tiles. I urge you to check out her blog – she paints the most stunning pictures. I had never even thought about painting on tiles but was intrigued and reassured by her that it wasn’t as hard as it seemed. I now have tiles – well, 44 to be precise! It was more cost effective to buy a whole pack so now I have plenty to play (umm, mess up) with.
It was suggested that a peacock was a good start so a peacock it was.
It was my first attempt and his neck got a little thick but once I realised this I really didn’t want to fix it as I could make the whole background run. I had so much fun. I sent my Mum a photo of it and, although she felt it was nice, she also thought he looked evil. Ha ha, well I think I have achieved my goal then as I do think that peacocks can look sinister.
My 7 year old daughter thought the inks seemed a lot of fun so together we painted this poppy.
Both tiles were painted with Ranger alcohol inks.
More inky tiles planned but I do need to work out how to seal them as the ink can scrape off. Possibly need to buy more alcohol ink now too!
