Default Clear Glass Christmas Ornaments

I have seen various ideas on these, how would you make these using alcohol inks? Any help is appreciated.

Talking alcohol inks

Sorry your question slipped through the cracks.
It is really easy to do alcohol inks on any kind of glass. The real trick is to not go overboard. start by applying the lightest color first then slowly ad a drop of other color one at a time. Allow a little dry time between color so it does not over mix.
What is fun is adding some pearlEx to the mix. I would put a layer of light color add a bit of pearlEx then add a bit of extender swirl a bit then add the next color. By limiting your pallette you will get the best results.
Let me know how it works out.
BTW I would also swirl in a bit of Diamond Glaze or other clear high gloss medium to keep the colors in place for years to come.
Also let everything dry well in between and after the DG is added.
