Altered Dominoes

I made a few altered dominoes to add to RAKs. They're really fun to make.
The colors are actually brighter than seen in the photos.

Ranger's Alcohol ink in various colors, regular and metallic
Alcohol Blending Solution
Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Ink Applicator
StazOn ink - Black Jet, Saddle Brown
Tim Holtz clear and cling stamps: French Market (ART, swirl), Tattered Sparrow (bird)
Ranger's Glossy Accents

I started by coloring the dominoes with Ranger's Alcohol ink in various colors, regular and metallic.
I stamped TH stamps on the colored dominoes with black StazOn ink and covered them with a thick layer of Glossy Accents to create a transparent glazing.
I gave the sides of the dominoes a Vintage look using Saddle Brown StazOn ink.

  5. Hello Dorly,

    thanks for sharing these dominoes. It would have been better if the photos were not so dark, so I can see more details of it.
    What I do see, I like ... I like the stone-effect the alcoholinks create on the dominoes.
    People will be nice to recieve these little beauties !
    greetings from belgium

  6. Love these Dorly! Whoever ends up with them as a RAK is very lucky!

  7. Hi Dorly, those look like fun! I like the colours and stone effect.
    I made a something similar with alcohol inks and UTEE 2 weeks ago - sticky but fun!
    Have a great day

  8. Very nice! I've been making similar ones...aren't they fun? Hope your "bad news" gets better.

  9. These are beautiful. I'm getting inspired to pull out some dominoes with all the great pieces being put up lately!

  10. These are fun! Did you get the marbling effect from the alcohol inks alone? Wonderful dominoes.
