About OrganicEdges

Hoping to spread the beauty and richness of alcohol ink creations along with other handmade items.

About a year before opening my shop, I started looking at options for reflective house address numbers to apply to my driveway. I had observed a number of painted addresses on driveways that very quickly faded in the hot Texas sun and didn't want to go that route. After taking a few classes at TechShop in Round Rock, I started brainstorming on ways to create a permanent, great looking address plate with reflective numbers.

I went through a number of variations in my mind and as I kept researching options, I happened upon alcohol ink. I purchased several sets in different colors and first experimented with canvas boards as that is what I had on hand. The following weekend, I cut some metal and created a large address plate and was completely hooked on alcohol ink on metal. The colors, depth and richness are just beautiful. And, then I found reflective vinyl for cutting the address numbers and the outcome was stunning.

However, my next challenge was finding a strong enough UV protective clearcoat that stands up to the summer sun. Our driveway (as with many others) is in the direct sun all day long, so UV protection is a must. While I found some good options for in-home use (coasters, book marks, etc.), I'm still experimenting with clearcoats on the address plates. So, hopefully in the future , I can offer address plates. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the other items in my shop.

Thanks for taking time to read my story!
Laurie
