What is Alcohol Ink Art?
Alcohol Ink Art is a form of fluid art. It is relatively new in the art world and is said to have originated in the United States. The technique has become popular worldwide.
Alcohol Ink refers to the medium used for painting as well as the fluid painting technique. The sole components of this medium are alcohol and pigment, as the name implies. They are highly fluid with vibrant colors and are fast drying.
Alcohol inks have been used in artists markers and historically for writing and drawing. They have been a favorite for stamping, scrapbooking and textile art. Liquid Alcohol inks are richly pigmented and glide around easily on non porous surfaces. This has led to an interest in working with the medium to create abstract wall art and decorative items. The fluidity of the medium allows one to create beautiful pieces of art and make all sorts of swirls, marbling patterns and other designs.
