April is my birthday month, so I may be a bit biased, but with the changing season bringing more sunshine and color, happiness seems to be attached to all the things during this time of year.

Naturally, I had to make some alcohol ink tiles for Easter–and Earth Day tiles are up next!

Easter Egg Alcohol Ink Tiles

These alcohol ink tiles never fail to surprise me. I usually start with one idea and the results are almost always completely different.

As I’ve mentioned in my other alcohol ink art posts, this method of using a Sharpie marker to draw the main shape is meant for very simple designs. You can try to make smaller details but I find that those usually bleed and the image is lost.

For example, I tried to add more distinct wiggly stripes to this Easter egg tile (pictured above) and, while pretty, I think it’s a bit more of a mess than magical art. That teeny, tiny bunny doesn’t make a lot of sense either. I guess they can’t all be winners!

Whatever your style, working with alcohol ink is a ton of fun. The inks can be applied directly to egg shells, but I prefer a more sturdy final product.

These tiles can be used as coasters, wall hangings, or just as fun decorations for your holiday tables capes.

Alcohol Ink Tiles with Easter Eggs

These are perfect for Easter crafts or for any time you want to add a little color to your day! Kids can do them, too! Just make sure they're supervised and wearing their 'get messy' craft clothes. 

Prep Time 10 minutes
Active Time 15 minutes
Additional Time 15 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Difficulty Easy

Materials

  • 3-5 bottles Adirondack Alcohol Ink, in a variety of colors
  • 1 bottle Ranger Adirondack Alcohol Ink Blending Solution
  • 1 ceramic tile, any size
  • 1-2 Sharpie permanent marker, in preferred thickness and color
  • 4 felt stickers

Tools

  • 1 paint brush, fine tip

Instructions

  1. With the tile face down, apply felt stickers to each corner.
  2. Make sure the front of the tile is clean and dry.
  3. Use the Sharpie permanent marker to draw minimalistic egg designs--the simpler, the better. Go over your lines to make sure they're about 3-5 mm thick.
  4. Apply the blending solution with a fine tip brush to the inside of your image--or wherever you want to add color. Be sure to stay at least 1 mm away from your marker line, or it will bleed, and the alcohol ink will run through it. (Sometimes this is awesome and creates something unexpected and neat!)
  5. Add droplets of alcohol ink to the areas with blending solution. Be mindful of your color choices because they will mix. (Too many colors will create a dark mess.)
  6. If areas are not getting colored, try using a toothpick to drag the ink to those blank spots.
  7. Once the inside of your image is colored, apply blending solution to your background and repeat steps 4 and 5.
  8. When you're satisfied with your creation, allow it to dry on a flat surface.

Notes

If you make any mistakes, use a cotton swab with a few drops of blending solution as an eraser. If you prefer to do a full reset, you can apply several drops of blending solution directly to the tile and wipe it clean.
