Red & Silver Joy Ornament

Designer Tip: I used more red ink than silver, for a mostly red ornament to show off the silver dazzles. I colored the metal top of the ornament silver with alcohol ink as well.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Remove the gold top from the glass ornament. Put on your rubber gloves and cover your work area or sink with newspapers or paper towels. While holding the top of the ornament with one hand, turn it so a flat side is facing up. Squeeze some blending solution onto the ornament, turning it so it is covered with the solution. Now squeeze a few drops of watermelon ink onto the ornament, turning to let the ink run over both sides. Add a few drops of silver, then a few more drops of the watermelon ink. Keep turning the ornament over and let the inks mix. Add more watermelon or silver ink until you get the desired look, and turn the ornament over occasionally until the ink dries.
  2. Squeeze a few drops of silver Mixatives ink on the gold top and spread with the paintbrush to cover. Let dry, then add top to the ornament. Attach Dazzles™ to ornament as shown. Tie ribbon over loop of silver memory thread.
