Adirondack Alcohol Inks, various colors
Using alcohol ink on yupo paper gives such fun, vivid results. And this is such an easy technique that yields wonderful results. These pendants would make great Christmas or birthday presents!
Yupo paper is a synthetic, 100% recyclable paper. And it is durable. For these pendants, I used Tim Holtz Yupo Paper and chose three Adirondack Alcohol Inks to color them with – Butterscotch, Sunset Orange and Citrus. I randomly dropped the inks onto the paper, letting them blend into each other. I then added the Adirondack Alcohol Blending Solution in little drops, which moves the ink around and lightens the color a little. Keep adding color until you like the look You can add drops of one color into a drop of another color. It’s very fun to play with!
After the page has dried, which should be well under an hour depending how much ink is on it, choose a section that you would like on your pendant. I used the Stampbord Assortment for the pendant base. When you choose the shape you want to use, trace around it on the yupo and cut out. I used Ailene’s Clear Tacky Glue to adhere the yupo to the pendant base. After it dried overnight, I sprayed it with Krylon Matte Sealer. Depending on how much is sprayed, it could move your ink around a little on the pendant. I then used E6000 to adhere the jewelry bail to the pendant. One one pendant I added three little clear gems to the bottom right. You can decorate how you like!
