Dylusions Ink Sprays

23 Sep

Dylusions ink sprays are so yummy and luscious to use. The colors are fabulously saturated, and they mix well with each other too.  I belong to a journal group and we had a recent play date where we really did just play with the sprays. We used a watercolor paper and also a heavier weight drawing paper. Both worked really well.

We started by mixing various colors together to see what would happen. Blues & greens. Reds & yellows. Black & blue. Brown & orange & pink. Green & blue & turquoise. And on and on and on.  Just playing with the color mixing was fun. Splashing with water drops. Using a paper towel to blend the colors.

Then we added using stencils and water. Just lay a stencil down on top of the colors you already sprayed and then spray water through the stencil and blot it with a paper towel. The water activates the ink sprays and lifts it creating a wonderful effect. You can also use baby wipes with a similar effect.

We also used the stencils and other ink colors to spray on top.  The black was a popular color to use. When you spray on top of the other Dylusions colors you get a nice bleed effect. This was a word stencil and I loved how it turned out. Fun fun fun!

And what about using drips. I love drips. Now I have a stack of vibrant colored papers that can be used as backgrounds for art journaling. These could also be cut up into shapes and added to other mixed media art. Or maybe used as ATC or postcard bases. Lots of ideas. What could you do with these papers?

Have you played with the Dylusions Ink Sprays? They are so wonderful to use. You do have to be aware that they are water activated, so if you add any wet medium on top, you will change what you started with. Of course, I like that. The surprise of what might happen if I add something else makes it interesting and exciting.

Blue Twig Studio carries the Dylusions Inks Sprays and lots of stencils too. You can buy the Dylusions Ink Sprays here and the stencils here. What kind of art will you create with these lovely colors?

    I wish we had them in stores here, but at least I can look at your wonderful creations and be inspired to try something with the things I have on hand. 🙂 They are great for crating backgrounds for journaling, but also could be used for artistic messy scrapbooking. 🙂 Actually, there are million things Dylusion inks could be used for, like maybe creating a unique wrapping paper, etc.

      Yes there are lots of fun ways to use Dylusions. Sorry you can’t get them where you are. You can always order them from me and be the first of your group to have them and use them. 🙂 I do ship overseas. Although I know the overseas shipping is astronomical these days. You’d think the Postal system didn’t want us communicating or sharing with each other.

      Hi Candy
      I’ve played a little bit with them on fabric. If you are using them on something that isn’t going to be washed, then I think you will be OK. But even with heat-setting them, I found that they weren’t permanent on fabric. Of course, different fabrics respond differently, so try a test sample first.
