Alcohol Ink Votive Holders
I had picked up these little votive holders at the thrift store for 79 cents a piece. I probably didn't save much by buying them second hand, but they seemed like a great size for tea lights. Then when I got my alcohol ink, I thought I'd try it out on some glass.
I wiped the votives clean with a makeup sponge and some rubbing alcohol, then carefully dripped ink down the sides of the candle holders. I tried to keep it from looking too "drippy" and still cover most of the surface. It pooled at the edge and did look drippy in places. It's tricky with a rounded surface to control the ink--which is part of the point of this look--a free form stained glass. They turned out pretty neat when the light shines through them, and I've added another alcohol ink project to my repertoire.
