Inks & Paints On Mineral Paper

$52.00

 

Hello, my friend! Welcome to class.

This workshop is a collection of inks and paints on mineral paper classes I’ve done. This really cool paper is made from rocks instead of trees. It is a less plastic feeling than Yupo paper and is less absorbent than watercolor paper. It handles lots of water without buckling. It is very thin but strong. This paper is cool and takes the Acrylic inks and paints in a unique way. I really loved playing and experimenting with this paper and I know you will too! Check out the videos below to see what each class in this series is about!

This workshop is a collection of inks and paints on mineral paper classes I’ve done. This really cool paper is made from rocks instead of trees. It is a less plastic feeling than Yupo paper and is less absorbent than watercolor paper. It handles lots of water without buckling. It is very thin but strong.

Acrylic Inks: Create Interesting Abstracts on Mineral Paper

In this class, we are going to play and experiment with acrylic inks on Mineral Paper. This really cool paper is made from rocks instead of trees. It is less plastic feeling than Yupo paper and less absorbent than watercolor paper. It handles lots of water without buckling. It is very thin but strong. This paper is cool and takes the Acrylic inks in a unique way. I really loved playing and experimenting with this paper and I know you will too! Another thing I love about this paper is it is pretty cheap compared to Yupo and Watercolor paper. You don’t feel so bogged down with not wanting to waste it since it was so easy on the wallet.

This paper would be great for all kinds of inks – so if you have some other inks like alcohol inks, India inks, etc… you’d love this paper for those mediums also!

In this class, we are going to explore using mineral paper with acrylic inks. I’ll show you some of my experiments on the paper and we’ll do some fun small practice pieces. Then we’ll go a little larger and create some cool abstract art!


Acrylic Paint Abstracts on Mineral Paper: Creating and Exploring Techniques and Paper

In this class, I wanted to experiment some more with mineral paper. I know it works great with Acrylic inks… and in this class, I want to make some abstract pieces with other acrylic paints I have on hand. You are welcome to do any of these projects on any paper of your choice. I just think it is fun to experiment with different papers to see how they act, react, and work with different materials. Some things work great, and some… not so much. It is that process of discovery that is so exciting.

We will be doing 3 different projects in class. Small samplers to get a feel for the paper, a larger piece you can keep as is or cut up, and another project with some more fluid paints to see how those work out.


These classes are for you if:

  • You love learning new techniques for your art
  • You are interested in learning more about mineral paper and experimenting
  • You love experimenting with art supplies
  • You love watching how others approach their painting practice

 

Supplies: 

These are the supplies I’ll be using in most of these classes… definitely get creative and experiment if you have some other supplies or ideas that come to you as you go through the class.

  • Multi-Media Mineral Paper by Yasutomo – This stuff is so fun to create on that I’d get a couple of pads of this paper to use
  • Acrylic inks – definitely experiment with some colors you have on hand. Here are the colors I’m using throughout the class: Liquitex – transparent burnt sienna, red oxide, transparent raw umber. Amsterdam – Permanent red violet light, Titanium white, ultramarine violet. Daler Rowney FW – Purple lake, Payne’s grey, olive green (any of your ink products would work on this paper so if you have alcohol inks, India inks, etc… feel free to try them out on this paper also)
  • A few watercolor brushes to put your water on the paper.
  • Kuratake Gold Mica Ink & dip pen (You could use a gold posca pen instead if you prefer. I’ll be using my Kakimori Brass Nib dip pen – but a regular dip pen works fine also with this ink)
  • White Posca Pen – or any color you like – gold, silver, and black are all good choices
  • Small spray bottle to squirt water on your pieces
  • Variety of paints – I’m working with a variety of acrylic paints in the acrylic paints class – I show you the exact paints I’ll be playing with within the supply video and in each project. I like experimenting with the paints – but you can work with any colors and types you have on hand to do your projects.
