I found this AMAZING blog post through the magic of Pinterest, and I am SO SO glad that I did! It was SO much fun and I couldn't be happier with the end product!
When I saw these on Pinterest, I fell totally, instantly in love. I knew I had to have these for my kitchen! I'm hoping that it works out to use them in there, that the colors will match up nicely with the living room colors, but if not, they will go in my bathroom. I just LOVE how they turned out!
|You need inks, a toothbrush and Alcohol blending solution that you can purchase at your local hobby/craft store, or online here.|
First coat the tile with the alcohol blending solution. You don't want puddles, but you have to give it a good coat and work fast because the stuff evaporates quickly!
Then, you just put drops of color and watch it explode into amazingly cool patterns.
We experimented a little with using other things like q-tips and whatnot, but really we just liked the basic patterns it created all by themselves.
|You can also put small drops of the blending solution on the colors and it will leave "white" spots. You can wait til that dries and just keep adding layers. There are some awesome effects!|
I finally found the best way to clear coat them to protect them from scratching on the blog with Aimee's Comment. It sounds like it will be a bit time consuming, but I'm thinking that on a hot summer day in the garage, it will go fast enough. (With some good ventilation, of course!)
