Crafting Tip
To ensure an even coverage when painting on glass, the two most important points to remember before you begin is to a) be sure to thoroughly clean the item, first with soap and water, and once dry you should then wipe the surface that will receive the paint with white spirits or rubbing alcohol. The second point to remember before you begin is to ensure you have a very good quality soft brush. This will ensure you get the best even coverage on your painted item.

The Lovely Ink

The Lovely Ink is a site and blog about all things created using Alcohol Ink. The Lovely Ink features glassware, dishware, home decor, ornaments, and other handmade home goods all inspired by ink-based design. Martha talks about her latest designs as well as offers great tips on using alcohol ink on your own creative projects.

Crafting Tip
For an interesting and random look, blow the alcohol ink across the surface of the item being painted. But, unless you want to be left gasping like a fish out of water, use one of those cans of compressed air used to dust electronics. I also recommend you use several at once. The cans can get extremely cold, even frosty, and it is safer for you and your skin to switch cans rather than let one get too cold.
