Hi! It’s Tessa from How to Make Art here to share with you a fun project using Splash Inks. This project is inspired by a stained glass window that I had in my childhood home that depicted a colorful butterfly. Here is what the finished piece will look like:
Here’s what you will need:
*Niji Splash Inks
*Dropper for water to mix colors
*Palette for mixing colors
*Yasutomo Traditional Chinese Ink in Ultra Black
Step One: Make a pencil sketch of a butterfly.
Step Two: Using the Chinese Ink, go over your outline of the butterfly. Don’t forget to add a black border around the image as well.
Step Three: Mix up some colors of Splash Ink, and fill in the spaces with your colors. I love how vibrant the Splash Inks look up against the black!
Step Four: You can tape the finished piece to a window to mimic a real stained glass window! Light will shine through the colors in the wings.
I hope you enjoyed this project!
