"Marbled Alcohol Inking Technique" – Dominos

© All Rights Reserved

This week’s Artful Times challenge #25 was "Alcohol Inking."

After doing an internet search, I decided I wanted to create a domino using the marbled effect.

Although my piece is digital, I tried to replicate the mottled marbled look by using a "veined marble texture" GIMP script that I had written a few years ago. It doesn't create the mottled look that I wanted to match, but I thought I could try applying a filter to it, to achieve that end result. I used the GMIC Steampunk Pencil filter on it, but it still didn't look right.

My end results are an abysmal failure. The only reason I've posted them is as a reminder to myself to revisit this technique, and come up with a method of creating the same mottled marbled look that I wanted to achieve.

All of the stamps are from Clipart ETC. (See the side of my blog for links.)

I used the following colors:

Tiger - c5b47c Lake Mist
Man - d6a898 Shell Pink

WEll, that was an interesting venture that you had although what we really wanted was the actual AI's to be used.
You write your own programs? Wow, I am so impressed. Wish I was not so technically challenged - thanks for sharing with us.
Hugs, Neet x
