Polished Stone

One of my favorite techniques is Polished Stone. This is a very easy technique to do, and produces fabulous results.

Supplies needed:

Alcohol Inks (I use Pinata Inks) -  1or 2 colors
Denatured Alcohol in a spritzing bottle
Domino with felt adhered to it
Krylon Gold Leafing Pen
Glossy Cardstock

Instructions:

1. Put a couple of drops of alcohol ink on the domino which has felt adhered to it.
2. Dab this onto the glossy cardstock.
3. If using a second color, apply it in the same way.
4. Using the Krylon gold leafing pen, put a few dots onto the glossy cardstock, over top of the pinata ink.
5. Spritz with the denatured alcohol.
6. Watch the leafing pen create beautiful gold veins.

Hints:
If you are not completely satisfied with the results, spritz again.
