Playing with COLOR
My color capers continues...this time around I tried blending reinkers with rubbing alcohol. You can see further information on Jody's blog post called "Drunken Watercolor". CLICK HERE. I took a couple of days coloring a whole page of Bellas and comparing all the variations of color. I also mixed in some more color with my markers too. These blended pretty well and really helped because I don't have very many reinkers. The trick is to color onto something nonporous that leaves the ink on top (not seeping in) like the back of a CD. Anyhow, I found this process very long and challenging. There definitely is a learning curve with this technique. If you decide to give it a try you'll need to practice-practice unless of course you are a natural. ;-)
