DIY Alcohol Ink Easter Eggs
While playing around with my alcohol inks, I discovered 3 different easy ways to use alcohol ink egg painting techniques. Each looks quite different and beautiful in their own way.
Alcohol inks do stain, so make sure to cover your workspace and wear rubber or latex gloves!
The dabbing method is just that, dabbing!
Put a couple drops of Alcohol Ink onto a cotton round and then dab the ink onto the egg.
You can use as many colors as you want or keep it nice and simple and only use one color.
I added a light touch of gold metallic as the last color and I love how it turned out!
The finished eggs here really look watercolored to me and are quite beautiful.
These method names are really creative, aren’t they!
Spray the egg with the Isopropyl Alcohol.
Lay the egg on a covered or protected surface. Apply drops of alcohol inks to the egg and simply roll the egg to coat the color in different ways around the egg.
Again, use as many colors as you want, and continue until the egg is completely covered.
Aren’t they beautiful? I used all the colors I had on the bottom egg shown and I absolutely love how it looks!
Hand Mix Method
This last method is the easiest of all. Place the egg in a hand with a glove. Spray the egg a couple times with the isopropyl alcohol.
Apply a couple drops of alcohol inks to the egg, no more than two. Then simply roll the egg in your hand until it is completely coated. Easy Peasy!
Make sure to think about the color combinations you are going to use. For the first, I did green and gold and it ended up being a brownish egg. But as you can see the pink and silver version looks amazing!
All of the eggs turned out unique and beautiful, even if I didn’t choose the best color combo for the brownish one.
