Make Distress Oxide Blenders for Cheap or FREE!

Hi friends! I am having a ball with my new Distress Oxide inks! I was afraid (because they contain some pigment ink in them) to use them with my regular ink daubers so I decided to make some new ones for them!

I have been hanging on to an old glass chess set for years, I kept the tempered glass game board for a cutting surface and polymer clay work-surface but I had yet to find a use for the glass pieces. When I came across the box of glass chess pieces during my Kon-Mari craft-room cleanup I knew that they sparked joy and I would use them so luckily I kept them! See how I turned them into in daubers in this video!

Supplies:

*Note you can also use old plastic bottle caps to make sponge blenders with (You can even hot glue those for instant gratification LOL!) I hope you enjoyed the tutorial on how to make ink blenders. (Amazon affiliate links used:)
