What You’ll Need
White Ceramic tiles Rubbing Alcohol
Small Straw or eyedropper Your Favorite Sharpie Fine Markers
Color tile with Sharpies! Pick a combination of dark and vibrant colors to create contrast. There are no wrong choices!
Use a stirring spoon or eyedropper to methodically drop small “pools” of alcohol onto the tile. If you drop too much, the colors will all blur together and you won’t get any circles or patterns. Let dry! It can take up to half an hour, so just be patient!
If you think you added too much alcohol, you can go back and add more to create new “pools” on top. It will bloom again!
Seal it using a spray fixative first. Hold the tile at least 6 inches away and spray lightly over it. If you spray too closely or too much, the ink will reactivate and blur again. Do it in layers. After that, you can use a varnish or polyurethane to seal it with a glossy coat!
IF you’re really feelin’ crazy, you can add MORE Sharpie on top of the sealed layer!
Thanks for the awesome idea pinterest and sharpie
