This ink dyed pendant is made from an altered glass tile from the home improvement store. The tile was dyed with Ranger alcohol inks in various colors. I used my finger to spread on a base color and then I dripped the other colors on top and let them spread and mix until I got this colorful pattern.  I added two steampunk gears and cogs to give it a steampunk vibe. The tile measures 1 7/8 x 1/2 inches and has a silver colored metal nut attached as a bail. I used glossy accents as my glue. The pendant is strung on a 24" steel colored ball chain.

I have been dying to try out alcohol inks since last Christmas.  Please keep posting beautiful projects like this that will help me justify my need to buy new crafting supplies.  Cheesy

    That is very pretty - how did you seal the colours?

    I sealed the alcohol inks with a water based matte varnish. I apply varnish with a cosmetic sponge wedge so that I don't get brush marks. Dab on first coat so you don't spread the ink. Let that dry and then apply a heavier coat. Hope that answers your question!
