Messy Inky Drippy Mixed Media Papers

Brooke Henry
9:00 - 4:30
Sun April 16

[back to quicklinks]
$ 185  

Create a batch of handmade papers that are messy, organic, and full of character. Each batch is unique and unable to be replicated exactly. But rather use these techniques again and again in all of your favorite color ways. Using acrylic inks, paints, and mark making tools we will build layer upon layer of interest and intrigue. Making the final result truly one of a kind. These messy inky drippy papers can be used in a wide variety of ways. In art journals, cards, tags, mail art and so much more.
