How To Create an Abstract Alcohol Ink Painting on Mineral Paper

If you're like us, you've been noticing posts on social media showing wispy, smoky, ethereal alcohol ink paintings and wondered how on earth these artists achieve these magical effects... and how you can, too!

Fortunately, alcohol inks are becoming more and more popular, and now you can learn how to create your own alcohol ink paintings from various YouTube tutorials.

While these videos feature different materials based on the artists' preferences, Yasutomo mineral paper is quickly becoming a favorite substrate for alcohol inks.

As artist Debra A. Jason notes, "Mineral paper is thinner than Yupo or Nara Synthetic paper. It has a bright white vellum like surface, which is tear resistant."

Debra is a skilled alcohol ink painter who recently uploaded a wonderful tutorial sharing tips and techniques for creating abstract alcohol ink paintings on mineral paper.

Whether you've been playing with alcohol inks for a while or are just getting started, we think you'll love Debra's video and walk away with some great tips for your own art!
