Have just recently come arcsos your Dylusions Inks…watched a ton of your videos and was hooked. The next day I picked up 6 bottles of your inks and have been playing and experimenting with them ever since….oh if only I didn’t have to work during the day LOL! Love this bleaching technique…so easy and it looks amazing…I notice you have UK and USA classes…any chance you have any scheduled for Ontario, Canada?

No UK classes. Just ones at the store in Oregon.
