Krink Blog Demo 1

Krink is a brand of markers, pens, ink stamps and spray paints that have a drippy effect when you use them. It’s a well known and sold all over the world, one of the few products that is still made on the USA today. You can read more about the history of Krink “HERE” and other things. The app sells for $2.99 at the App Store and it’s a universal app (iPhone/iPad). Before I go into blogging about this app, I wanted to dedicated this blog to @rocean13 for telling me about this app. Please check out his feed on Instagram, he’s one of the best serial abstract artist I’ve seen on Instagram. You are missing out on some fantastic work. Rocean13 told me he would like to see what I can do with the Krink App, so let’s blog about this fantastic ink app !!! The top photo was taken with 645 Pro and edited with Krink and DXP.

Now the app is loaded you can go through some of blog posts or just tap on “Start Painting”.

Camera Roll-4142

Ok you will see these ink spotter and if you scroll through the app back and fourth you can pick what kind of pens, ink stampers or inkers. I like the bottles of ink with the stamper on the top.

Now to make the drips is you hold your finger on the screen and hold your iPhone/iPad in the upright position. I made a spot with a simple drip.

Camera Roll-4147

Now I ran the ink stamper across the top and you will see lots of drips…

Camera Roll-4144

Now you have other options with this app, like if you wanted to change your background color or use a photo.

Camera Roll-4148

These are the different color backgrounds you can choose from…lots of nice colors.

Camera Roll-4149

I picked out a hot pink background with my metallic blue drips.

Camera Roll-4150

This is the photo background I picked out…so it almost looks like your defacing public property but you’re not !!! Now I don’t condone to defacing public property but I love to photograph some of the graffiti art that appears on buildings.

Now when you save your art work it will pop up quickly when you save. Sometimes it’s so fast and if your not sure. There’s nothing to save your art work again just in case. You can always delete the extra save.

Camera Roll-4153

Here’s my crazy drip artwork I just made with Krink, I’m going to show you what I do with it. It’s also fun to twist your iPhone/iPad in all sort of directions to make the drips fall all over the screen.

Step 1

I take the drippy sea monster looking image and layered it with a photo I took with Pro Camera. I did 3 layers with DXP, one was the regular photo then the sea monster and then the regular photo. Then I used Exclusion to blend together, so I can get that solarized/negative look to the image.

Step 2

Next I run it through Dynamic Light, I use this app about 99% of my editing to bring out details and colors. I usually do 50% to 100%, when I use this app.

Step 3

Lens Light is the next app I used for the cosmic rain lines…

When Monsters Atttach

The last and final edit was done with Photo Toaster, it’s my new favorite app to use for editing again with the new 4.0 update !!!
