General Meeting Demo

Marilyn Riopel treated our group to an amazing demonstration of her skill with alcohol inks. It was obvious how much she enjoyed playing with the inks and experimenting with the effects she is able to achieve using alcohol, alcohol blending solutions, hair dryers, pipettes and other tools. Marilyn has generously provided us with notes summarizing what inks she uses, some of her tools and how to frame finished works. These notes will be emailed to DeCosmos members.
