Fire and Ink
April 29, 2017 at 2:30 pm–3:00 pm
Do you like to set things on fire? Are you attracted to bright and shiny things? Are you artistic? Go beyond traditional painting. Use alcohol inks and fire to create artworks that defy description. Will your painting crackle like alligator skin? Or will the inks burn smoothly off in wavelike patterns?
Learn how to use alcohol inks and fire to create vibrant one-of-a-kind paintings. Alcohol based inks are dye-based, transparent, highly saturated,fast-drying, fade-resistant and can be used on any hard surface, including glass, metal, plastic, ceramic, stone and clay. Stephanie Todhunter will demonstrate how to use alcohol ink, denatured alcohol, clayboard and fire safely to create colorful abstract works.
Fire and Ink will be located in the backyard of Jerome Street Studios, a small cooperatively run art studio space in West Medford. This demonstration is a part of the ongoing West Medford Open Studios, a two day event located in West Medford, MA.
