Directions how to make alcohol ink Christmas ornament
First take the caps off the ornaments. The ornaments must be glass for the alcohol ink to work the best.
Next add one to three drops of the color you want to use. Swirl it around until you get just the right look. Be sure you are in a well ventilated area when working with alcohol inks.
Then add another color. It will run and bleed into the other color if they touch. This is the beauty of this technique. Play with the colors and swirling until you get the desired effect you want.
Stand the ornament upside down and allow some time to dry.
Add some metallic alcohol ink to add another layer and depth to the ornament. There are several shades to choose from to make it your own. I like gold and silver around Christmas time.
The color combinations are endless with alcohol inks. Feel free to use your own. I just love the way the colors seem to move and flow within each ornament.
