Now I don't know about you, but i don't like spending money on something that i can make myself. The ink blending tools that are sold in craft stores run about $5.00 each and only have one end to apply blending foam to. So I created my own blending tool that is double-ended and very easy to make. Since the components are fairly inexpensive, I created 6 for the price of 1 of the store bought tools.

I purchased the components from my local craft store. It's made up of a rectangular piece of wood, the wooden handle (candle holder-I think), a round wooden piece, thick craft foam, and the pokey side of velcro. I glued the pieces together with glossy accents - applied generously and allowed to dry for several hours. Then, .I purchased the round and rectangular Ranger Blending Foam. They simply stick to the velcro and stay perfectly in place. For those who use alcohol inks, felt can be used in place of the foam. You can purchase a sheet of felt for around $0.20 and cut to size then stick it straight to the velcro. So that's it. Simple, huh?
