Set aside andlet dry.We will begin easy and work up to harder:The first domino I did was to ³blend´ colors.Step 1: Take a domino and press one half (the non dotted side) into a Staz On pad of your choice.Step 2: Turn the domino and press the other half into a coordinating Staz On color.The ³today´ domino I used Pink and Purple. The ³tomorrow´ domino I used Blue andPurple.Step 3: Now you spray a small amount of alcohol or alcohol blending solution on thedomino. The colors will begin to bleed.Step 4: Take a cotton ball or paper towel and ³blot´ very lightly. This will blend thecolors and give it a polished stone look.Step 5: Heat set the colors.
