Quick and beautiful glass ornaments made with alcohol ink and canned air

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 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 me some glass ornaments. I’m seeing this as a wonderful backdrop to a polymer clay enhanced ornament.  You’ll just have to wait to see what I come up with but in the meantime, Check this out.

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

But 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.
