We’ve really been into working with alcohol ink lately! It’s just one of those mindless mediums that is fun to do and pretty much always has a great outcome!
We had left over hexagon tiles from our tabletop fountain, so we turned them into coasters for the summer!
If you’ve worked with alcohol ink before you know it’s an experience!
When you add rubbing alcohol to the ink it changes right before your eyes and creates a very organic natural design on its own.
Alcohol ink (we used teal, blue and gold)
Spray bottle (optional)
Add a small amount of rubbing alcohol to the tile and lightly wipe around with a paper towel.
While wet, add about 4 or five drops of the alcohol ink. Swirl the ink around the tile, but not going all the way to the edge.
Now for the fun part! Fill the dropper with rubbing alcohol and add drops on top of ink. Watch the magic.
Use a spray bottle for a speckled look.
Blot with paper towels if it becomes muddy looking. There’s really no right or wrong way to do this, play around and enjoy the process!
When you’re happy with the outcome, sprinkle some salt on the title and let dry.
Wipe off salt and add a coat of sealer to keep ink vibrant and washable.
Cut a piece of felt to size and glue to the bottom.
