Belle of the Ball, Alcohol Ink ACEO PPF

Fancy Dress Ball Gown and Hat
2.5 x 3.5 inches Miniature Painting

Working with Alcohol Ink Markers on the back of photo paper. The inks are so much fun, and unpredictable. Of course I had to buy the big set so I have 88 colors. (Found them on amazon.com Shuttle Art brand - very reasonable price.)

  4. Lovely work. Beautiful shade of blue. I can't use alcohol markers. I find the smell makes my asthma flare up. Pity because the results you can get get are wonderful.

    1. Sorry about that! I cannot use oil paint, even the supposedly water base ones. They make me really ill.
