Re: Coleus, demo, Acrylic inks.

Maureen, love this demo and the bright colors that you get with the inks. Never tried the alcohol inks or even have them but it sure gives some beautiful effects. Thank you for sharing.

Re: Coleus, demo, Acrylic inks.

Fantastic! I really enjoyed seeing the process photos. I haven't yet tried liquid inks, but the clear, transparent, gem-like quality is surely tempting.

Re: Coleus, demo, Acrylic inks.

Oh! I didn't realise this thread had been revived! It's from 2009!!! But thank you for the comments everyone, they're much appreciated!

blue - I haven't worked on full size sheets for years - except for a pencil drawing/portrait - also about 5/6 years ago!

Re: Coleus, demo, Acrylic inks.

Oh so lovely! I grow coleus from seed every year. I have a coleus that I believe is the same variety as the coleus in your beautiful painting. It is a hybrid so it produces no seeds for me. Instead I take a cutting every year and keep the plant going on and on that way. Thanks for the step by step tutorial.
