I had bought some on eBay where a person had sold them in sets. I got 6400 so it was 100 of each 64 colours.....I can't find anything close to this now.

I saw some stacks on J's website but they are not in stock.....any ideas? Are they called anything else?

I have not seen them in the stores in quite some time. I know the bigger half marble flat backs are called skittles on ebay.

Pat Catans also sells the plain clear ones in the floral section...you can use alcohol inks to make whatever color you want. The dew drops, not the skittles.

I've never heard of dew drops so I googled it.

Which led me to a site explaining how to make your own with hot glue and alcohol inks.

So, I know what I'll be trying this week!

I've never heard of the hot glue trick...would like to see how your tests come out though. I have bought them in the store, and have used alcohol inks to dye the clear ones. You can get a HUGE bag of the clear ones in the floral section for cheaper than the cost of the tiny bottle of dew drops in the scrapbook section. I have thought of trying embossing powder on them to get the opaque colors but never tried it. I'm out of clear ones, so I guess now I have a reason to run out to Pat Catans some time this week if time allows. For the sake of every one waiting on pins & needles on the forum, of course.

I've never looked for them at J's, but I am sure they'd carry them too. They're just called decorative accents on the bag.

Michaels has what you need to make your own - They are in the floral section with the marbles, stones, etc. They come in a bag that is about $6.00 (use a coupon) Then you can color them with alcohol inks that you can also pick up there or many other stores. Check out you tube - there are several tutorials that will show you exactly how to do. It's very easy - just need some paper plates, baggies, dew drops, alcohol inks. Just put a handful in the baggie and put several drops of the ink in and mix around the bag to spread the color. then pour out on a plate to dry - it's quick. You can mix colors add more or less drops of ink to change the intensity of the color - very easy and so much more affordable than purchasing!!!

Boy, am I in the dark!


I thought she was asking about the 'dew drop' ink pads (and the "stacks at J's" were the cat eye ink sets).

I couldn't figure out how flat marbles or hot glue had anything to do with it.
