Tutorial Friday for Miriam's Crafting Supplies - coloring rhinestones

Today for Miriam's Crafting Supplies, I am going to show you how to use alcohol markers to color rhinestones. With all the different colored rhinestones that Miriam's Crafting Supplies carries, it would be shocker not to have the right colored rhinestones but something you run out and are unable to get your order in on time so you have to improvise.

Here are just a few of the colors that Miriam's Crafting Supplies carries. 
It's always good to have different size clear rhinestones on hand and to have some alcohol markers too. There are many different brands of alcohol markers out there from the expensive Copic to the reasonably priced Promarkers.
I will be using three types of alcohol markers today: Letraset Promarkers (Amethyst -v626), Prismacolor Primere (Dark Purple - PM-168), Spectrum Noir (BP2).

First off, it's best to use clear rhinestones instead of prism colored ones. It's easier to get the color you are going for. I have three sizes here from Miriam's Crafting Supplies.
The pretty colored one in the foreground is the prism colored one. The other three are clear.

All you do is color your rhinestone but make sure you color the top and sides to give it a full color effect. 

How easy is that! Now you know why it's important to keep some alcohol markers and some clear rhinestones on hand and Miriam's Crafting Supplies has a large selection of clear and colored rhinestones in different sizes.

Thanks for stopping by today and hugs from Lorby's World.


  1. Internet is the biggest server of fun with a lot of variety.
    One of my favorite ones is where the thanksgiving turkey is hiding from a guy, who apparently
    wants to get him in the oven, by placing a lampshade on his head and standing on a dresser so
    he looks like a lamp. The videos relax, they make
    people smile and as they say, laughter is the best medicine.

    A person needs to have an active internet connection to be able to access all the headlines and information on internet.
    Thus they can choose from the many available sources.
