Here's another old vase found in the garage. It has a water stain around the center that won't wash off. I've decided to try the Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks to color this vase.
Wow - supper fast and easy to do! Just place a felt pad on the dabber, use a few drops of alcohol ink and pounce all over the vase.
I only used the cranberry color on the bottom. When I started reaching the upper portion, I added another color to the same felt pad. Results show a marbling effect.
When the alcohol dries, the ink is permanent. Dries within a few moments. I wore rubber gloves - didn't want to permanently color my hands!
Here are the two vases together. One to the right is the one I hand painted and glazed. The bigger far right is yet to be done.
