How to Colorize Washer Pendants with Alcohol Inks

By on Monday, August 04, 2014 2 Comments

Alcohol inks are yet another excellent way to add color to jewelry projects.  Check out the marbled washer pendant tutorial by Allison (of Dream a Litter Bigger) over on Momspark .  She makes it look so easy to get that water color look to what are hardware store washers.  Don't they look stunning?



Alcohol inks can be used on a variety of surfaces  -  glossy paper, wood, shrink plastic, metal, glass and so on. They are fade resistant.  There is a special blending solution for lightening colors and for cleanup.  I would try using isopropanol (rubbing alcohol) first as it is readily available from the drugstore.

Alcohol inks give a different look when compared to another craft favorite - Gilder's Paste.
