The first layers will be playing with alcohol inks. For those of you that have done an alcohol ink class you will already have most of these supplies. If you cannot find a color or certain items on the list do not stress. Just do the best you can. We have lots of goodies to test and experiment with.
Alcohol inks minimum primary colors Magenta Yellow Baja Blue
