I was first introduced to alcohol inks while at a street festival in my hometown. There was a tent set up for mini art classes. A passerby could watch the proceedings. I was only able to watch for a few minutes as I was under a time constraint. However, my whole being was instantly filled with joy and wonder as I watched the magic of the inks on yupo paper. I, of course, did not know the name of the products being used at that point. I just knew that I was hooked. It took me months to find out who sponsored that tent and even longer to find out where I could take a class. My first class was in January and I haven't looked back since. I now have set up an art studio with my daughter on our property and have happily spent a small fortune on alcohol ink supplies. My heart is happy.
