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!

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!

    Hello, those are gorgeous! I've never used alcohol ink before so have no idea of its consistency - did you paint it on with a brush or is it runny so you could just drop it like and let it swirl around? Also where do you buy it and those lovely clear eggs-Michaels ??? Thanks so much and kudos-they are perfect! Rosemarie

    Where did you find the egg-shaped ornaments --local to Saginaw? (I am in Clio)
