Mixed Media Morsel Technique #3

Here we are Cat Hand’s Mixed Media Morsel Technique #3 – Alcohol Background

Now this technique requires acrylic paint, rubbing alcohol with a high percentage, a water spray bottle and a dropper.

So to start paint a light color as a base and dry.  Pour some alcohol into a container so you have it ready to drop it.  Then mix a darker paint with a lot of water.  Quickly paint this color on top and then drop one drop onto the wet paint and all over the page.  The acrylic paint will be repelled by the alcohol and create beautiful rings.  Let dry and repeat again with two other colors.

The importance things to remember is that the wet paint must be really liquid, the colors of the paint must be light base and dark top and the alcohol you use must be a very high percentage as previously mentioned.

First I started with a yellow base with green as a top coat.  Then I used light blue and dark blue specifically to create an underwater scene.  Not exactly sure what I’m going to do but I really like the look of this page.

So pick up your paintbrush and grab some alcohol and watch these amazing rings appear!

Have a Magical day!
