WI Art Camp 2012 - Day 1
First lay out a plastic sheet or garbage bag to work on. Apply alcohol ink puddles on plastic sheet and roll candles in it. Then you can use pieces of felt to apply alcohol inks to areas of the candle that you missed. At any time you can spray the candles with a little blending solution that you've poured into a mini mister. You can also apply the alcohol inks directly from the bottle by squeezing drops down the candle starting at the top. You can even roll your candle onto the plastic sheet again. We found that the look of the candle changed a little after they sat for a while so you may want to wait between applications. And, be careful not to create a 'muddy' look.
Five of us created our candles on Saturday and we thought the others would do theirs on another day in between our other projects.
It was a little chilly, but we wanted to burn off some calories so that we could enjoy the chicken burritos that Pea cooked for our dinner.
Carol grabbed markers and began drawing a dragonfly or a butterfly on each apron. Each one was a work of art.
On day 2 Pea would be coming back and Maggi, Mary, and Jan would be joining us!!!
