We're back today for a Tim Holtz Distress® and Tim Holtz® Alcohol Ink Recap! Tim spent his days demo-ing his new products, including 12 new colors of Distress® Oxides! In addition to the new Oxides, the Distress® line also welcomed a new Resist Spray and Blending Brushes.
The Ranger booth showcased the new products, as well as all of the Distress favorites! Boards along the side were filled with colorful samples of all the Distress products.
This year also brought a big launch for the Tim Holtz® Alcohol Ink line of products. With this new launch, we we're excited to have the opportunity to participate in the Creativation Paint and Sip where artists could learn how to paint with Alcohol Ink while enjoying a glass of wine. The Paint and Sip was taught by Sharen AK Harris, a fine artist who excels in Alcohol Ink painting. The event allowed attendees to start with an abstract piece and during that time Sharen explained how Alcohol Inks work. Once everyone felt comfortable, Sharen guided them into creating a final work of art.
The Alcohol Ink grid proudly showcased many "New" stickers to show guests all the new products to the line. New releases included new colors, a Mini Applicator Tool, a Tool Set, and a Storage Tin.
In addition to the Paint and Sip, Sharen AK Harris also taught an Alcohol Ink class, for those who wanted to learn more about the medium. As the class went on, students turned their abstract works into beautiful sunflowers. They also learned how to control the medium by using Alcohol Blending Solution and paintbrushes.
