VIDEO: How To Use Inks – 10 Ideas For Using Acrylic Inks

various ideas for using acrylic ink

 

Inks are great aren’t they? I mean I use a lot of acrylic paint but I do love using acrylic inks too. I love drawing with them but they are fabulous for all sorts of techniques and mark making, so I thought it would be fun to share some ideas for how to get the most out of your inks. Now I am using acrylic inks here but you can easily use other inks, drawing inks and even liquid watercolors instead in a lot of the techniques that I am sharing today.

So have a play and let me know which techniques you love and are going to try out next! Oh and let me know what inks of fluid colors you are enjoying using at the moment! And don’t forget to scroll down to see the close-up a texture from one of the techniques I use in this video.
