In Nicole Petersen’s Thinking about Inking class, you will learn the ins-and-outs of ink used for card-making, scrapbooking, art-journaling, and mixed-media. In this interactive lecture/discussion class, you will interact with fellow crafters to experience the pros and cons of many ink types. You will receive a custom-designed Thinking about Inking Booklet with facts about dye ink, pigment ink, hybrid ink, embossing ink, white ink, and solvent ink. In this interactive booklet, you will create your own samples for future reference using a variety of ink. Come join in the fun as Nicole Petersen walks you through the maze of inks in the craft world. You will leave understanding which inks you enjoy and which ones you want to leave on the shelf!
