I have been ooohing and aaahhing over Artsyvilles drunken tiles for a while now. We finally bought some alcohol based inks (adirondack inks) and some 10 cent tiles from Lowe’s and went to town!
We started with the alocohol blending solution squirted onto the tiles and spread it around with a toothbrush.
Then we gently dripped small amounts of the colored dyes on to the tiles. As long as the alcohol is wet the dye spreads and runs.
We used straws to blow around some of the colors and q-tips to draw into the colors. If you add alcohol on top of the dyes it takes the color away.
This was so fun. No two tiles turned out alike. We also learned that you can’t really control the outcome. You think you have it just the way you want it to look and then the dyes just keep spreading and combining into something else. But they all looked really great!
This is the same tile from the first photo–look how it changed.
These dyes are permanent and will stain so prepare accordingly!
