On NGS group we are doing a book study of Julia Andrus' book "Paper Transformed". This week we're looking at the section "Tortoiseshell". This technique uses alcohol inks to imitate the look of tortoiseshell. Drizzle brown alcohol ink onto a felt applicator and lightly pounce over glossy paper.
Drizzle ochre (or orange) and black alcohol inks on to the same applicator and pounce all over the paper again.
Use a clean felt applicator and drizzle it with blending solution. Lightly pounce over a few places to create some faded spots.
My sheet was fairly light, so I went back and pounced on some more brown, orange and black alcohol inks.
