Stained Glass Easter Eggs

36,953 Views
I had never used alcohol ink before, so I didn't know what to expect when I first started this project. However, I am thrilled with the way that these pretty stained glass look egg ornaments turned out!
Time: 10 Minutes Cost: $20-30 Difficulty: Easy
I used alcohol ink on glass ornaments to make beautiful Easter decorations.
I used these Tim Holtz alcohol inks to create the stained glass appearance of the eggs. The alcohol inks dry quickly so this is a very quick project to do.
The inks mixed and overlapped on the surface of the glass ornaments to create gorgeous swirls and color gradients.
Instead of making all the eggs using a rainbow of colors, for some eggs I kept the color palette limited to create these ombre eggs.
I hung the eggs on a flowering branch near a window so that the sunlight filters through the eggs like a stained glass window!

    Did you put the ink inside or on the outside?

      @Barbara Coombs For the majority of the eggs, I put the ink on the outside. I did experiment with putting it in the ornament, but it was harder to hit it with the canned air.

    And where did you get the glass ornaments? Would it work on plastic I wonder?

      @Barbara Coombs I bought the ornaments and the inks from ConsumerCrafts.com. If you follow the link to the tutorial, I show the full process.
