Alcohol Ink Ornaments

These are my first Christmas Tree Ornaments I colored using alcohol inks. I need improvement, but they are still okay. I'm making more tonight.

Mike's New Car

This is a picture of Mike's new car. Economy is the way to go. I know that at almost $3.00 per gallon and after filling up with $70 of gasoline in my 2006 Envoy it has me thinking of changing vehicles.
He got a great bargain on this one. It's a brand new 2006 Kia Spectra EX.


Tumbled Tile Coasters

Tumbled Tile Coasters

Supplies:Unglazed Tumbled tiles (Lowes)
Alcohol Ink, Blending Solution and Ink Applicator Tool
Rubber Stamp(s) of your choice, I prefer solid stamps such as Bronc Buster by Stampin’ Up
Stazon Ink
Self Adhesive Cork shelf liner or felt backing
Krylon Workable Fixative
Krylon Triple Thick Clear Glaze or Krylon Matte Finish

1. Wash off tiles to remove dust, let dry.
2. Spray with Krylon Workable Fixative, let dry; should be ready in about an hour..
3. Ink edges of tile with alcohol ink using applicator, if it gets too dark add a few drops of the blending solution. (I ink edges and center then thin out or lighten the color by adding the blending solution.) Heat set by baking at 325 deg. oven for about 15 min.
4. Use Stazon Ink to rubberstamp image or images on tile. Heat set by baking at 325 deg. oven for about 15 min.
5. Spray with either Glaze or Matte Finish, let it dry for about 24 hours before handling. 6. Cut out cork or felt approximately 3 ¾ by 3 ¾ and attach to the back of each coaster.

To clean wipe with damp cloth, do not place in dishwasher.
Note: The music coaster set is one I made for Myrna's teacher and the Bronc Busters set was a door prize for our clerk's conference.
