Alcohol Ink on Yupo


I absolutely love working with these alcohol inks!

I keep finding new colors,

and new color combinations.

I just can’t stop!

Their colors are so vibrant and fresh.

I use Yupo paper. It has a plastic coating over it,

making it perfect for the alcohol inks.

I put the color on first,

let it dry completely,

then use a Copic Multiliner pen to tangle.

And I end up with this.

I love it!

This is 5″ x 7″.

I am thinking a black mat and a lime green frame.

  1. Beautiful, Alice. I like your idea of the black mat and lime green frame. If you do that, would you please show us? I would love to see it…..Thanks and have a great weekend…..Linda E.

  2. Back mat & lime green frame sounds wonderful – I can see you're in your element with these. The way you've used Hollibaugh with a Printemps background as well as the Rounded Hollibaugh in your design adds lovely interest whilst not detracting from the colours yet still keeping the whole design 'tied together' – waffling a bit but I expect you can decipher my meaning………..Paula (PEP)

    • this was so much fun, paula, and a quick artwork to draw up. the longest part was waiting for the inks to totally dry 🙂

  3. They ARE great colors!!! So far I have eight (out of 17) sets of three! I printed out Ranger's palette and laminated it; then began doing my swatches… Such a pretty sheet! We share the same passion for rich, vibrant color. You were the first I saw using Dylusions and I had to run right out and get them!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

    • thank you for telling me this – i'm so glad to hear that some bit of my art inspired you to try something new. 🙂 my collection of alcohol ink keeps growing. i think i'm addicted. hahaha!
