Make Earrings with Alcohol Ink on Metal

I was so excited to receive a variety of alcohol inks from Marabu. Alcohol ink can be used in a variety of different ways. Since I like to make jewelry, I wanted to try a new technique with alcohol ink on metal. The results are stunning!

Materials:

  • die-cut machine (Cross Over II)
  • dies
  • faux leather
  • soda can
  • scissors
  • embossing folder
  • alcohol ink
  • UV Resin
  • UV light
  • jewelry making tools
  • jewelry making findings

Directions:
Cut your soda can with a pair of scissors. If you would like to see a tutorial on how to do this, use the following link. [cutting a soda can] Once cut and washed, I flatten the aluminum and emboss it.


Place the aluminum can in the embossing folder and run it through your die-cutting machine.
 


Here is the embossed aluminum.
 


We will cut the aluminum the same way we cut the faux leather with a die and the die cutting machine.
 

Here are the finished earrings:


round on dark blue faux leather
 


teardrop on dark blue faux leather
 


triangular on purple faux leather
 


and if you look to the left, I have one more pair to make but I can’t decided what color faux leather to use if any at all
