Ranger Alcohol Inks on Metal and UTEE Project


Two different shots. Metal is hard for me to shoot, and both of these aren't very good...


I had almost forgotten about this project. It was the first one I did for Tim. Candy C showed it on her blog with a great picture, better than the one I could get, and I thought you might like to see it.

This was so much fun working with copper and silver sheets of metal that I embossed with 9 different Texture Fades from Tim's Alterations.

This metal is from Streuter, not the new Metal Foil sheets from Ranger, but the technique can be done with several different products. I made this before I ever knew about the new product from Ranger to show off the Alcohol Inks and Texture Fades.

Then I put them on small square canvases from Blick. Add the Alcohol Inks and various Idea-ology pieces, and the Numbers with UTEE Brightz. Very cool process with the UTEE.

We've had Thunder Snow here and Lightning for several hours. The wind in incredible. Drifts 5' high in back of the house. But so far, no ice!!!!

Be well and stay warm.

  8. I saw this from the CHA floor, and although you Tammy and Tim's names were mentioned it didn't say who this specific piece belonged too but I guessed it was probably yours. :) Gorgeous! TFS!

  9. Another absolutely stunning piece of artwork. I've followed your blog for a few years now and I have always thought you were extremely talented, but now I think you've gone to a whole other level (I didn't think it was possible for you to get any better than you already were). I just personally think that your work is flawless, stunning, eye catching and it is the work of a very talented, seasoned artist. Wow!!!

  17. Wow, Linda, that's gorgeous. Very rich looking. I am waiting for some metal to come, and am looking forward to experimenting with embossing and using alcohol inks - I like the idea of doing small pieces and putting them together like that. Also about to start using UTEE for the first time, and interested to know how you did the numbers? Did you have some sort of mould?

    I've been hearing about the thick snow in the USA. In the UK it seems to have disappeared - for now! Keep warm and safe!

  26. All you works are just so fantastic. I could just sit here all day commenting on how fabulous they are like a broken record, but it would be very repetitive and boring. Instead I will just sincerely say that your work is like a series of little masterpieces and lovingly put together to perfection. Stunning!! :-)
