How To Create A Winter Background With Memento Inks

Katy Ingram_Winter Sky_IG

By Katy Ingram –

Hello and welcome! Katy here with a new video. Today I have a new way of ink blending to share with you that anyone can do. I know may people struggle with ink blending in general and the technique I share with you in the video couldn’t be simpler to replicate and is a bit easier on the hands and wrists. I also talk a bit about the difference between hot and cold pressed watercolor paper for those that may not know and for a change of pace I used Memento inks to do my ink blending and created a beautiful crisp winter night sky. I hope you find these tips helpful and I hope you enjoy the video. Thanks so much for watching.

By Katy Ingram –

Hello and welcome! Katy here with a new video. Many of you may have noticed from my last couple videos that I use VersaFine Clair Inks a lot and that I love to ink blend with them. Today’s video is no exception. I used two VersaFine Clair Inks that blend beautifully and create the most amazing burnt orange color that is perfect for Fall. In the video I also talk a bit about how to have better success with your ink blending by using Hot Pressed Watercolor Paper and I also show you a simple way to create sentiment strips that are fool proof.
