Hexies made with markers and rubbing alcohol

I took a class at my art guild on making cool shapes with rubbing alcohol and permanent markers. We made a bunch of these on muslin stretched over a cup. You just draw some lines with the markers and drop on the rubbing alcohol in the middle and the colors run into cool designs. Some times the colors change in surprising ways as they blend. They dry in no time. Hexies are a great way to use these circles in projects. These are sewn on a cotton dish towel.

 This is a hot pad made with the hexies also:

I ironed them with a hot iron and steam to make sure they wouldn't run when washed. This would be a great project or young kids to make!
