• Alcohol Ink and Eggshell Domino Pendant

    One of the coolest things I have ever used are Adirondack Alcohol Inks by Ranger. If you have ever used any of Tim Holtz products you will love these Alcohol Inks also! I am also a lover of recycling items that have no other use than in the compost pile or at the bottom of my trash can. Eggshells are a great crafting items, they can be used for so many things to create texture, give body or just add a cool element. Reduce, reuse and recycle, words to live by!

    Alcohol Ink and Eggshell Domino Pendant Tutorial
    -Domino (Preferably not lightweight plastic, although this will also work)
    -Ranger Adirondack Alcohol Inks in various shades (2-3 depending on desired blending)
    -Alcohol ink applicator and felt (I use Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Ink Stamp Applicator)
    -Eggshells, soaked in warm water overnight or for several hours to remove membrane
    Aleene’s Quick Dry Tacky Glue
    -Black Gesso (I use Liquitex, but any black Gesso will do)
    -Thick Brush-on Glaze (I use Americana Triple Thick Gloss Glaze)
    -Glue-on Bail
    -Paint brush (one for Gesso, one for glaze)
    -Exacto knife
    -Cutting Surface
    -E-6000 or any adhesive to attach bail to domino

    Show me how your alcohol ink and eggshell pendants turn out!

    Luv this! Can you tell me if these pendants would be waterproof? Also, instead of domino, would it work with a polymer base? Thank-You very much!

    Hi there, thanks for stopping by! The pendants could be waterproof if they were sealed with a shellac of some sort, be careful when choosing a shellac as some will turn your piece yellow. A polymer base would work just fine, you might want to rough up the surface of your polymer a bit so the egg shell will adhere better. You could also use the Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks by Ranger on polymer as well but you would need to abrade the surface a good bit. Let us know how your project turns out, we would love to see what you make!
