hey everyone

EDIT: I WANTED TO SAY DYE INKS DON'T WORK AS WELL AS I THOUGHT :( WE CAN ONLY USE ALCOHOL INKS.
just wanted to share the pics I took while making colored skittles with Ranger Inkabilities "Posh Rainbow Inks". They are on sale at my M's for 7.99$ (per 6). Regularly 25.99$. They turned out nice! You can hovewr over the picture with your mouse for the color.

BigGrin They are beautiful. Please forgive my questions, but I am new to all of this. I am assuming that you bought plain glass stones and colored them using the ranger inks, am I correct? Also, what do you then use them for do you have any examples? how did you color them? They are beautiful! I love the rainbow of colors you have chosen. Any tips hints helps are greatly appreciated! Thanks a bunch!

Thanks for asking :)

Yes I got a huge bag of CLEAR skittles (in the VASE/SAND section @ Michaels's)..put a handful in a plastic bag, added 1 drop of ink and mixed them up and waited for them to dry.

You can mix colors too and get more variances!

I personally have not used them in any of my projects yet, but I will be using them mostly for "little buttons" or "accents" or "bling" to make my pages more colorful.

They are very colorful! I read somewhere you could use the flat sided ones to put a small picture on and make a magnet out of them. That might be pretty with the colors you made. I haven't tryed to do this but I was thinking maybe you could put a pic under them to use in a page or maybe a babys face for the center of a flower. Darn not I'm gonna have to buy some and try it! lol!

Thanks for sharing. I'm not sure what I would do with them, though. Aren't they kind of heavy? Or is this a smaller and lighter type of glass or plastic? TIA

Happy Cricuting!

I think these are actually acrylic so they aren't very heavy. They look very similar to something I bought at Michaels and those are acrylic. They are really tiny, probably not the best thing to put a picture on but you can certainly do that with the larger glass ones I've seen.

The colors that OP used are gorgeous! Makes me want to go to Michaels and buy those inks!

I really only got them cause they we're 7.99$ rather than 25.99$ for 6 :)
Maybe your store too!! :)

I agree with a below poster... these skittles are VERY tiny so they wouldn't be good for pictures...I wonder if they do make bigger ones... (Same size as the ones in the fish bowls maybe)

I found some different sizes @ Michael's today.

The bigger one would be perfect to put pictures behind it.

I'll take another pic with all 3 once I get home.

When you found them in Micheal's, what exactly are they called? Has anyone found them Joanns? I'll be going there tomorrow.

Is there any other thing you could color them with?

I'll show you a pic of the packaging tonight. I usually find them in bulk by the VASES and rocks ... :)

I've tried Ranger Inks so far...

EDIT: Dye Inks do not work well :( Alcohol Inks need to be used ! sorrrry

Are the posh rainbow inks dye based? I tried some and they don't seem to dry.
As for covering up the pre poked holes on the flowers, could you glue a tiny piece of matching paper over it, then add the skittle on top?

YUP, the posh inks are Dye ink :(
I made my first batch (no pics) with Alcohol Inks and they worked fine. I then tried these and didn't realize until I posted pics that the ink didn't work good when they're dye based...they don't dry like you mentioned.

I guess my mistake can hopefully help others before they make the mistake too :)

I think the piece of paper would work fine.... I should try that ;)
