Alcohol Inks add color in a watercolor style to Lucite Beads and organizing tips

We played with Alcohol Inks and Lucite beads today, and got some great results with little time and effort. Here’s a quick recap:

Paint Brush
Assorted White Lucite Beads
Alcohol Inks, lighter colors best
Cup or jar of water
baby wipes for clean up and Blending Solution
I like to set out 3 or 4 colors that coordinate, I used Pastel shades for a more watercolor look. So, used Peach Bellini, Cloudy Blue, Sandal, and Juniper. I laid out a small puddle of each color on my silicone sheet and with the brush randomly dipped in to a color and brushed it on the white lucite flowers, from both the inside and the outside, in strips, randomly applying color till it was what I wanted.

Evening Out Earrings

Lindsey made these lovely long and dangling earrings recently using a chain that makes this look so easy. The chain alternates between the larger flat links and the smaller grouped chains so you just need a section of chain to make this look work. The 3-Petal Bellflowers come in lots of lovely colors and finishes, but this color worked so nicely with the chain.

Tropical Heatwave Earrings

When I see these earrings the song ‘Tropical Heatwave’ starts playing in my head. They have a swaying movement to them, along with the glitter of the crystals, I just start thinking of the dance floor!

Victorian Lovebirds Bracelet

This lovely bracelet has been a favorite of mine for awhile now. I love the Vintaj Lovebirds connector and the magnetic clasp on this bracelet makes it a breeze to put on and take off. The magnets are strong enough that if they get close to each other they quickly jump together, so slick! Also,… Continue reading Victorian Lovebirds Bracelet
