I have been dabbling in mixed media, and I have discovered Yupo paper, which is a paper made from plastic and is untearable. I think it's perfect for alcohol inks.
I am just beginning the journey of discovery, but I wanted to share with you my discoveries so far:
I dropped small drops of alcohol ink onto Yupo paper and let it spread. Then I spritzed it with alcohol and copic blending fluid. I love the variations of color.
For this piece, I ran the Yupo paper through the cuttlebug with an embossing folder first, then added drops of alcohol ink. The channels of the embossed piece helped to spread the ink. Then, I added inka gold paste to the piece, which gave it a sheen that you can't see in the scan. Then I left it alone for awhile. Finally I took a fine sharpie marker and outlined the channels and immediately wiped it off, which kind of "antiqued" the piece. It's very much more subdued than the first piece.
I haven't tried using watercolors on it yet...that will be my next experiment. I'll keep you posted.
