Teach Me Tuesday - Custom Coloring Mesh Bling

Teach Me Tuesday

Today's tutorial is brought to you by the talented Katie! Today she will be showing you how to make custom colored mesh bling! 

Here are the supplies you will need:

~Any pair of scissors
~Q-Tips or any brand of cotton swabs
~Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink
~Silver Mesh Bling

(Do you see where I am going with this) ;)

Step 1: Take your scissors and cut out the length of silver mesh bling you are needing for your designated project.

Step 2: Take the TH Alcohol Ink and put a small dot onto the tip of the cotton swap. Because the cotton is super absorbent you will likey need another small dot depending on the shade of color you are trying to achieve as well as the length of silver mesh bling you have to dye. 

Step 3: Dab each "bling" section with the alcohol inked cotton swab. Just use a pouncing method for this step. And keep repeating this until you have achieved the desired look and color. 

Final Product: Custom "Silver Mesh Bling" to match any project! :) 

I hope you super loved my tutorial! Please let me know what you think! :)

  1. Great idea love this tutorial!!!

  2. I love my alcohol inks because you can alter the color of almost everything with it. It's amazing how nice that mesh bling takes the color. I'm probably the last person on earth that has not gotten that mesh bling lol. You did a great job changing them up.

  3. Wow, I had no idea it was that simple. I am just getting on the bandwagon with the mesh, now I need the ink and I am good to go.
