So for this project, I prefer to use clear glass ball ornaments. I felt like it took the alcohol ink too long to dry with the clear plastic ball ornaments., and although it worked most of the time, the glass ornaments looked better overall.
I love alcohol inks! Just be sure to wear plastic gloves and use them in a well ventilated space. Here are the colors I used for these clear color alcohol ink ornaments. Turquoise Alcohol Ink (in a set with complimentary colors) and Indigo Alcohol Ink (in a set with complimentary colors)
- Box of clear ornaments, glass preferably
- Alcohol Ink, any color
- Can of air
- Make sure you are in a well ventilated area.
- Remove the top of the ornament and pour 5 or 6 drops of alcohol ink inside.
- Swirl it around a little bit, then use the can of air to spray the alcohol ink around, using short bursts of air.
- Add more alcohol ink if needed and repeat with the air.
- Set upside down to dry.
