I'll put my favorite in here - wonderful technique - a mixture of alcohol and ink? Cheers!

Just curios what type of material is used for the canvas and how is the medium applied. You've created some pretty amazing effects.

Thank you all, for the suggestions and comments! I am always appreciative of advice and a little guidance.

I use 'Yupo' paper as canvas. Yupo is a very smooth and synthetic (made from extruded plastic) paper, more traditionally used in Watercolor.

I apply the inks onto the yupo paper using a small dropper bottle with a needle nose tip. Once the inks are dropped, a lot of blending, tilting, and swirling happens to create different effects. It's a very moody/messy but fun medium to work with.
