Friday Freebie – Feb 9, 2018: Alcohol Ink Woodgrain

Today’s freebie was created using 3 colors of alcohol ink on Yupo paper. Being a complete noob with alcohol inks, or any kind of paint/ink substance, I had so much fun playing with the colors…and was excited to see this wood panel look emerge. I scanned it in at 600 dpi so you have a high resolution image to play with. The final image size, after shrinking down a bit, is 6000 x 4000 @ 300 dpi.

I would love to see what you create with this texture. Feel free to leave a link to where you’ve posted a picture.

Today’s freebie is a photo of an ink, or paint splash that I converted to black and white.
