How to create an ink blot tile

Create an Ink Blot Tile


Make sure to wear protective gloves and a plastic apron (in caddy.) These inks will stain your clothes and skin.

Choose your desired colors of alcohol ink and set aside. Then, wipe your tile with alcohol swab. You will only need a thin coat.

While the tile is still wet, (over the plastic tray) slowly add a tiny drop of ink, watch the ink fully expand before adding the next drop.

Continue to add different colors and watch the inks create different designs.

Feel free to paint and decorate your wooden easel for extra customization. Help yourself to paint and embellishments on shelf, and get creative!
