Design your own abstract painting using alcohol inks and an alcohol ink blending solution to create a unique composition! Combine Ashley’s easy-to-follow techniques with a little bit of creativity and watch your artwork come to life as you apply inks to diverse, ultra-smooth Clayboard. You’ll be lef...



1. Apply alternating colors of inks directly to Claybord in a comma shape, connecting the shapes as you work vertical and diagonally down the board. Allow inks to dry before moving on to step 2.

2. Use Alcohol Ink Blending Solution and apply a few drops to one color at a time.

Optional - Use a straw or blow on the area, or use a blow dryer to spread and fan inks in various directions.

3. Only apply blending solution to one color at a time. Repeat the process to add 2-3 multiple color layers on the board until the composition is complete.
