Possibilities

diluent-inks2I’ve spent the last two days on the ‘what if’ road. What if you mix diluent…oops!!! clay softener… and alcohol ink on baked clay and rebake. Some of the colors are ghastly, but others are very interesting, breaking down into two or three underlying shades. The three large samples on the bottom row have been coated with Golden Polymer Varnish with UVLS (Matte).

This is one trip that hasn’t ended in a dead end, but there are still a few questions to answer before I’m ready for prime time with this surface. Some of the samples have a ‘gummy’ feel. Is that too much alcohol or too much diluent? Will a second baking resolve that issue? HMMMM!!!
