Studio R and D - Alcohol Inks Have Arrived

Good Morning,

Happy Hump Day to you all.  The middle of the week brings me to the past couple of days of Research and Development with a new technique.

Several weeks ago I visited with a friend and fellow artists who was kind enough to allow me a to try out her new Alcohol Inks.  These work on metal, paper, glass etc... they come in a variety of colors and manufacturer brands.  I could not find the brand she was using, but came across similar colors in trios by Adirondack.

Left to Right:  "Brights" in Watermelon, Citrus and Lake.  The other package is in Spanish, Woodland or Farmers Set in Raspberry, Forest and Plum.

The process is a messy one, and trial and error should be employed carefully.  Gloves should be worn, this is ink and it will dye / stain any thing and everything it comes in contact with.   These tiny feather charms are done in Forest and make a very pretty finishing touch for bracelets or earrings, appropriate for a pendants as well.

Soon to be incorporated into items and available in the shop.

The technique is super simple, as shown in the brief video below.


Also in new in the studio are these simple and very pretty Memory Wire and Glass beaded bracelets.  14" to 16" of memory is cut and threaded with lovely shiny glass bi-cone shaped glass beads in a variety of colors.  The one below is Clear, Silver, Smoke, and Black combination.  May be made in single or multiple colors.  Soon to be available in the shop as well.

Also available in purples, blues, and pastel colors.

Thank you for stopping in and having a look.

The Alchemists Vessel would like to wish you a pleasant Wednesday.
