Ingredients

Instructions

  • With the tile face down, apply felt stickers to each corner.
  • Make sure the front of the tile is clean and dry.
  • 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.
  • 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!)
  • 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.)
  • If areas are not getting colored, try using a toothpick to drag the ink to those blank spots.
  • Once the inside of your image is colored, apply blending solution to your background and repeat steps 4 and 5.
  • 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.
