How to Create Florals with Alcohol Inks

A Comprehensive Guide to Creating Flower Art using Fun, Unexpected Techniques


Flowers have been a perennial muse for nature-loving artists throughout art history. Alcohol Inks are highly pigmented, fast drying alcohol-based inks that are perfect for creating blooms, blossoms, buds, and other botanical elements. You can learn how to work with alcohol inks to create gorgeous natural and fantasy floral artworks! There are a few factors to consider for working with the inks. You may be wondering:

  • How do I learn how to shape the alcohol inks?
  • What are some good surfaces to experiment on and work with?
  • How can I create the amazing layered looks of petals?
  • And most of all....what kind of techniques can I learn quickly to get started?

Alcohol Inks behave very organically and learning how they behave will allow you to get the results you want to achieve. The fluid painting techniques allow for the build-up and revival of each of the liquid layers, opening up many artistic possibilities to create singular flowers, bouquets, floral motifs, and more. 

Michelle Fountain has become a recognized industry leader in decorative painting. In researching techniques for wall artworks, she found another passion utilizing “flow mediums”. These include alcohol inks, fluid acrylics and epoxy resins. Despite her own demand for precision in her work, these processes offered organic intrigue with the vibrant colors blending effortlessly on their own. She finds joy in inspiring others by teaching her beautiful artistic techniques.

Here's what we'll cover.
