Alcohol Ink Tips - with Francine Dufour Jones


     Hello Everyone!


My name is Francine Dufour Jones and I love pure bright color. I do many art forms but lately the ones that call to me and I can express my love of color are alcohol inks, silk painting,  digital art, and acrylics. You can see all my art forms online at Art by Francine. This blog is about sharing some wonderful tips I have learned from experience and from other alcohol ink painters all over the world. Some tips come from discussions on various groups online. When I first saw a photo of an alcohol ink painting online I got so excited about the beautiful pure intensity of color. I have been a silk painter for years. The alcohol ink dyes had the same intensity.  I decided I must find out about this vibrant medium.  I took classes and read everything I could find on using alcohol inks.  I had many learning experiences  trial, error, and success.  I enjoy sharing what I have learned and new techniques. I am so amazed and thankful for the wonderful alcohol ink painters I have met along the way who are willing to share their tips and art. I am  grateful for the time we live in and how the Internet has made the world a small place. I am in awe of the technology that allows us to communicate with each other. There is instant translation so that language is no longer a barrier. Wow….what magic! To see my other art and  paintings online go to:
