- Small glass bowls
- Prices can start as low as $1. I bought two different sizes. I looked at the dollar store but I didn't find anything I liked. If you are feeling uncertain, get a couple at the dollar store first and practice on those.
- Alcohol Ink
- My Michaels sells them in three packs for $10 each. I purchased two packs.
- An ink blending tool
- Not essential, but it makes it easier to distribute the color more easily if you decide to go with the stamping method
- Instead of buying extra stamping pads, go to the felt section, buy white, and cut small pieces at home for yourself. You'll save more the $5 and it will work just the same.
- Alcohol Blending Solution
- Again not essential. The blogs I read stated I could also use distilled alcohol from the medical isle in pharmacy section of a grocery store.
- Krylon spray
- You can find this in the spray pain section. I bought a matte finish and was disappointed with the results. If I do this project again, I will purchase a glossy finish.
- Alcohol ink will wash off, hence why the spray is important to protect the surface and maintain the color.
- Latex Gloves
- If you don't cover your hands, you will stain your skin. I accidentally got a small amount on my arm and it took a day to get it off.
- Wax Paper and Cardboard
- Since I worked on my dining room table, I wanted to make sure I kept the surface safe. I put the wax paper down first and then the cardboard on top.
Therefore do no worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. – Matthew 6:34
Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery. - Jane Austen
If you don't like something, change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it. -Mary Engelbreit
