Alcohol Ink Tiles - wait list only

This intriguing medium has gained popularity over the last few years. Alcohol inks are            fast-drying, highly pigmented, alcohol-based inks that are great to use on any non-porous surface. Watch dots of color transform before your eyes!  Learn about applying ink with daubers or droppers. Move ink around with air to create unique patterns. We will be working on tiles which can later be sealed to serve as coasters.  Sealed tiles will be available for pick-up one week after the class. 

Participants must be at least 18 years-old and preference will be given to Matawan Aberdeen card holders. Priority will be given to those who have not yet taken this class.

WARNING: We take all precautions but there will be some alcohol fumes so this may not be good class for people with sensitivities and health issues.
