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.
