Use inks and alcohol to create interactive diffused patterns on paper. Bright inks and common rubbing alcohol work together to create surprising results! Experiment with dark over light, or light over dark. Try applying alcohol with tools such as brush handles, by dripping, or with an atomizer bottle. Use this technique in compositions or as a way to make decorative papers for other uses.
