Today I took some Yupo paper and added several layers of green Copic Ink. I let each layer dry before I added the next layer.  There are a few ways to apply the ink – for this piece I dripped the ink onto the paper and then held the paper up so that it would run down.

For the final layer, I used that technique starting from each side of the piece. The more layers you add, the less distance the ink travels as it starts to bond quickly with the under layers.
