This is the first alcohol ink piece that I am really satisfied with and proud of.
My concept was to make it look like flames and I think it really worked out quite well!
I also like how it frames the picture.

Please tell me what you think in the comments, I would love to read it!

I used:
Alcohol Ink (Black, Cherry)
Synthetic Paper (ca. DIN A3)
Isopropanol
Hairdryer

Aw, it makes me happy that this inspires you! Thank you! :heart:

You should really try it! It is so much fun to play around with, yet it takes a bit of practice to get the effects that you want. This is my third attempt with this. So I am also still quite a newbie to alcohol ink. But I think with this third one I am slowly figuring it out and getting closer to the right technique. :)

If you try it, please take care of your health, because the vapors from the alcohol are bad for you, when inhaling it for longer times. So work in a very well ventilated room or wear an appropriate mask. :)

This is amazing. :heart: I love how alive that looks. I can almost hear the crackling of the fire. The transition of the two colors looks great. It's a real joy to look at it. :)

I love the look of ink. It flows like nothing else I have seen. This looks alive and moving and yet creates defines shapes. I like the simplicity of 2 colors with great contrast. Great Job!

Yeah, especially alcohol based ink flows very uniquely and is really a joy to play around with!
