As featured in another post, I treated myself to 4 packages of Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks. There are three bottles per package, so 12 different colours total. A very nice mix. I've been dying to try some of the crafts I've seen on Pinterest, like alcohol ink on glass bottles. I don't really have a link to offer because working with this stuff is fairly self explanatory.
It's very easy to work with....a little bit goes a very long way. I simply dropped a little bit on the bottle and then blew on it to spread it out a bit. It dried very quickly.
Then I broke out the shrink plastic, both regular clear and the 'ruff and ready' kind that is cloudy/textured on one side. I cut my squares/rectangles, and punched a hole at the top, then added the ink. I did it on both sides of the ruff & ready to see how it would come out.
There they are, shrinking in the oven.
And the final results. I like the way the ruff and ready looks when the ink is used on that side and viewed through the clear side. Using it on the clear side is OK, but it can't be seen well through the ruff side.
One more bottle for the day. OMG so PRETTY!!!!!!!
Next, I grabbed the only two unused white candles I have in the house and dripped the ink on them. Then I used cotton balls to dab and gently spread the ink. That rainbow one originally started out as just different coloured stripes dripped down the sides in a spoke type pattern but it just didn't look good so I kept dabbing and adding ink as needed till it blended.
Oh the possibilities are endless now!!!
