A New Background Technique


My dear friend, Roc, and I were at it again. Here's another background technique that is created with alcohol ink and an aerosol can of air. You can also use watercolors to produce a similar effect.

May your day be colorful!

Okay, I havent' watched the video yet, but I definitely am planning on it, because you 2 make the best tutorial videos, but I had to come over and ask if yesterday were your ears burning? Because I met 2 ladies and we were talking about how we would love to get together with you and play--you'll have to check out my latest blog post to see who I'm talking about :)

You two make such a team...what FUN to watch your videos...so entertaining but educational all at the same time....love it! I have made watercolor trees using this technique with a straw and the good old "spin" machine and drop the al. inks in as it spins around....but now I neeeeed a can of air. Gotta go hunt it down:)
Thanks again you guys!!!

I so enjoyed watching you play with paint and spray...I wrote down all the products! And I laughed with you both at the end as you were running out of time. Such fun, thanks for sharing!!!!

Right towards the end I thought for sure we were going to see something happen more like the old Saturday Night Live "Blues Brothers" rather than what we are accustomed to seeing from the Blue Fingers Production team! LOL! I was feeling Roc's pain of trying to hurry! Great giggles. And another technique to stick in my bag of tricks. Since I seem to forget to clean the computers, I now have another use for those cans! Great job you two! Xo, Sue

Terri,
I love your videos. It is really helpful how you and Roc explain the different products and their uses, so I know just what to buy! I got my crayons for the Gesso technique today. Thanks for sharing your talent, Michelle
