Alcohol Ink Painting Double Masking Technique

Masking your alcohol ink paintings can help you achieve more realistic images. Here is how I mask two or more times to save the areas that I want to keep light and more controlled.

1. Lightly draw your design in pencil on the yupo paper.

2. Use a masking fluid to cover the outline or the whole drawn image.

3. Freely pour your alcohol inks on the paper for the background.
