My walls are bare and I refuse to purchase art when I can create it myself. I get to play with a little fire with this craft. It produces a watercolor effect only takes minutes to create. I can't stop staring at the finished product.
Check out this step by step instructions in my Crafty Fridays video :)
Remove glass from picture frame

Drop Alcohol ink on glass

Add rubbing alcohol

Move panel around mixing ink and creating an abstract design

Light it on fire and watch it burn

    Really neat! Does it burn long and when you light it does it flare up very high? Like should I be standing waaay back?
