Feeling Groovy with This NEW Coloring Technique for Acrylic ATC's (or Other Acrylic Shapes )

Art shown here is by Jane at YouTube Channel: VelocityVette08. 
<3 Love <3 this coloring technique! It reminds me of tie dye. Watch Jane's video showing how she achieved these colors on her ATCs. The piece on the right was originally white and the one on the left was clear. Are ideas just popping like crazy now? Go, create and send us your art so we can share it too!

The Best Little Tool You Never Knew You Needed!

15 months of updates continues.....
I brought these diamond tipped reamers in to create a nice finished hole in our resin drops for our dog tags, but have found it a 'go to' tool for many other uses. This is my first choice when I am weeding my vinyl, need to smooth a rough edge on a craft project and punching holes for 18" doll sandals.  For $1.35 each you should pick up a couple as they are a great little gift for the crafter who has everything.
