Some really cool ornaments I'm going to make with my Firsties.

I created some ornaments using clear glass ornaments purchased from Michaels.  First I used a technique from a YouTube video by Ranger.   They sprayed alcohol inks into the ornaments and then shot some canned air to move the ink around inside the ornament.  I left them to dry and they looked cool, but I really wanted to do the insides with glitter.  After drying a couple of days (which isn't necessary because alcohol inks dry almost instantly)  I added another technique.   I poured some Mop n Glo into the ornament and made sure the entire inside was covered.  I quickly poured out the excess.  A very tiny amount of the colored ink was reliquified, but not enough to make a difference.  

After about a minute or two, I poured in some white glitter and shook it around covering the opening with a paper towel.  These are some of the ornaments drying.
