The gem (acrylic or glass) chandeliers are beautiful, but what if you wanted one with color? With a little alcohol ink, you can go from clear to colorful in minutes!
|Crafted by Joy.|
- Adirondack Alcohol Ink
- Tim Holtz Foam Applicator
- Inkssentials Non-Stick Craft Mat
- Alcohol Blending Solution
- Rubber or Plastic Gloves
All supplies used for this project can be found at our Bonney Lake store.
Put on your gloves before getting started to avoid getting ink on your hands. You could also wear an apron to avoid getting ink on your clothes.
- Apply a small amount of alcohol ink to the foam applicator.
- Use a tapping action to cover the acrylic gems in the ink.
- Set aside and let dry when done.
Remember, if you do not like the color after you've applied it or want to replace it with another color, you can use the Adirondack Alcohol Blending Solution to remove the color (if only on a non-porous surface).
