This is the first mosaic I've used alcohol inks. Used them (okay 1 color) on a sheet of plain glass then cut them. Backed the whole mosaic with a mirror to reflect the rain, and added some drops in glass on top. The picture is from a coloring page I found online, but can't recall where. Anywho...here it is.
Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head



The inks have a learning curve so I asked a fellow mosaic artist, who uses them all the time, for advice. I will for sure be using inks in mosaics again. Smiley
