Day 349: Alcohol Inks Again

Way back when my 365 days was just starting, I played with alcohol inks on tiles. It was something that was way outside of my comfort zone at the time, but I wound up making several sets of coasters using the technique. Then, I put the technique aside. Today, I decided to try applying that technique in a slightly different way.

This time, I decided to see if I could create a similar effect on a smaller scale using tiles from our old Scrabble game. So that I could use the pieces for jewelry if my experiment worked, I first drilled holes through the tiles. I used Citrus green and Sailboat Blue inks to simulate the colors of water, kind of like I did for that larger tile way back when.

Of course, I couldn’t just do one tile. I actually tried the technique with several tiles (and I have the green and blue fingers to prove it). Obviously, it worked better on some tiles that it did with others. I am hoping that when I apply the sealant that the colors will pop a bit more.

Okay, so this isn’t my best project, but this whole journey is about trying new things and experimenting, which is what I did today.
