There are lots of fantastic artists out there.  We know a few ; )  But not everyone feels like they can create “art”.  Well, maybe you can’t draw a realistic portrait of your dear little terrier, but that doesn’t mean you’re not an artist.

Alcohol ink may be the medium that helps you feel more like the artist you really are.  Alcohol ink has an ethereal fluidity to it that lends itself perfectly to abstract art.  How amazing would an alcohol ink creation look in your boudoir or in your powder room?  People will be impressed, trust us.  But more importantly you will start to realize that yes, even you too can be creative and are dare we say it, an artist.

Check out this easy to do quick holiday project with

Tim Holtz and Ranger Alcohol Inks.

Ornaments 3 Ways.

Watercolored, Stamped and Solid.

There no limits to your imagination with these tools.


Tim Holtz along with Ranger put together this video and since I love alcohol inks. I knew I would have to give it a try. I’ve got my favorite inks.  Now, I just have to get some glass ornaments!

This could be a wonderful backdrop to a polymer clay enhanced ornament.

You can make these custom gifts for the entire family using canned air and alcohol inks in minutes.

Here are a few tips:

Use the ink sparingly so it spreads and does not pool too much which will “muddy” the colors and ultimately the project. Also, as a note, both samples shown are using the Ranger Alcohol Inks which are translucent whereas the Pinata Alcohol Ink by Jacquard would be more vibrant and less translucent.
