The Piñata Masterpiece Set is an exciting collaboration between Jacquard and Masterpiece Art Panels. This set makes an ideal starter pack for those wanting to use alcohol inks in their artwork or an ideal gift for a creative friend or loved one.
The kit includes:
- 4 x 14.79 ml (0.5 US fl oz) Piñata Alcohol ink bottles with the following colours:
Golden Yellow, Coral, Teal and Copper
- 3 Art Panels from Masterpiece each measuring 12.7cm x 17.8cm (5" x 7").
The Hardcore Alcohol Ink Art Panel by Masterpiece is a new surface that offers you more control over your artwork than traditional papers currently available on the market. They work AMAZINGLY with alcohol inks. They’re 1/8” thin, firm MDF boards with a lightly textured non-porous vinyl, giving you two sides to work on. The panel has a slight texture with tiny peaks and valleys, giving it a slight pearlescent shimmer effect as light reflects of it.
The vinyl extends work time for the colour-saturated, acid-free Piñata inks by creating less spread across the surface. As the ink flows less, you can paint a line and have more control over your artwork. And if you want the magic and excitement of more flow, just add more blending solution or 91% Isopropyl Alcohol. With the vinyl surface, the inks won’t don’t dry as fast, so you’ll have more time to work on your project. If you want to speed up the drying, just use a heat-gun. The solid vinyl panel can take the heat, just always move the heat gun around, so you don’t stay focused on one particular area.
It is recommended that you apply a couple of coats of a varnish or sealer, and then a UV protectant. You can also top it off with a two-part epoxy resin (like the Art Resin or Amazing Clear Casting Resin) which will transform your work into something you would expect to see in an art gallery. The combination of the brilliant alcohol ink colours with the resin produces a lasting work of art that really makes the colours pop and offers a glossy glass-like finish that will impress your friends and art buyers!
