If you're looking for something a bit different look no further. Alcohol inks have a free-flowing quality which enables you to produce fascinating abstract effects on both paper and ceramics. In this project based book, Ashley will show you how to take advantage of happy accidents and unexpected results. She'll also demonstrate finer levels of control by showing you how to draw trees that introduce a level of realism into a fantasy landscape.
I won't pretend that this will be for everyone but, if you were intrigued by the current vogue for paint pouring, or just like to explore new ideas, it's certainly worth a look.
